Mental addition and subtraction
S: Addition facts for numbers 6 to 10 Day 1: Know addition and subtraction facts for all numbers to 20, focus is on pairs of single digits with totals between 10 and 19 such as 7+8 or 6+9 etc. S: Doubles 1 to 10 Day 2: Use the = sign to represent equality (e.g. 17 + 3 = 15 + 5), focus is on pairs to 10 and 20 S: Pairs to 10 Day 3: Add several small numbers, spotting pairs to 10 or 20 or doubles S: Complements to multiples of 10, e.g. 46 + □ = 50 Day 4: Revise using number facts to add a singledigit number to a twodigit number without crossing tens, e.g. use 5 + 2 to work out 65 + 2 or 45 + 2; Extend to crossing the tens e.g. 63 + 8 using place value to help S: Mixed number facts bingo Day 5: Revise using number facts to subtract a singledigit number from a twodigit number without crossing tens, e.g. use 5  2 to work out 65 – 2; extend to crossing the tens e.g. 63  8 using place value to help

Mental addition and subtraction
S: Add pairs of multiples of 10, e.g. 40 + 30, 60 + 50 Day 1: Add twodigit numbers by partitioning, either units >10 or tens >100 S: Number bonds – to 10, the other numbers up to 10, Day 2: Add twodigit numbers by partitioning, include units >10 and tens >100 PLENARY: Have totals of a pair of twodigit prices, e.g. 46p + 58p, so convert answer to £.p S: Complements to multiples of 10, e.g., 57 + □ = 60. Day 3: Counting up subtraction, subtract by finding a difference. Introduce Maths Frog (very important as lots of chn’s maths will be based on this!) Frog always jumps along the number line, because she is Maths Frog, she always jumps to the next 10. Use Frog to help children to find a difference between two numbers, 72 – 56. S: Subtraction number bonds to 10, e.g. 10 – 3, 10 – 6 etc. Day 4: Use frog to subtract any pair of twodigit numbers – Make sure chn know that Maths Frog makes this easy – we always hop to the next ten! S: Use place value to add and subtract, e.g. 40 + 5, 45 – 5, really quick! Day 5: Find change (‘counting up’) from a pound – show children that Maths Frog makes this easy too!

Mental addition and subtraction
S: pairs to 20, and related subtractions Day 1: Adding using place value to help: e.g. 456 + 20, 456 + 200, 456 + 2. with just one digit changing, e.g. not 456 + 70. Plenary has two digits changing, e.g. 456 + 110, or 456 + 101. S: Addition of any singledigit pair of numbers – e.g. card swap Day 2: Place value subtractions, e.g. 450 – 200, 456 – 20, 456 – 2. These do not cross tens or hundreds, e.g. 326 – 40 is not ok, but 356 – 40 is fine. S: Add and subtract multiples of 10 to or from any twodigit number, perhaps guess what’s been added, 45 + □ = 65 Day 3: Add and subtract near multiples of 10 to/from twodigit numbers, e.g. 45 + 29, 45 + 31, teaching uses sequences of calculations: 45 + 30, then 45 + 29, +31 Additions do not cross 100, e.g. 54 + 31 but not 54 + 81 S: Count on and back in 10s from any threedigit number Day 4: Add near multiples of 10 to 3digit numbers, e.g. 345 + 21, 345 + 19, teaching uses sequences of calculations: 345 + 20 and then near multiples. Additions do not cross 100s except in plenary S: Count in 2s from any threedigit numbers say where odd or even Day 5: Subtract near multiples of 10 from 3digit numbers, similar to above but subtracting not adding. 
Mental addition and subtraction
S: Count in 5s to at last 100 and back again Day 1: Bonds to 100, multiples of 5 S: Complements to multiples of 10, e.g. 34 + □ = 40 Day 2: Bonds to 100, any twodigit numbers S: Bonds to 20, quick fire, 17 + □ = 20 Day 3: Subtraction by counting up, using Frog, either side of 100, 103 – 93 or 108 – 87. This uses number bonds to 100 in stages, so 108 – 87 is 87 hop 3, hop 10, then hop 8. The first two hops are to the 100. Some children may do this in one hop! The difference between the two numbers is less than 25 S: Complements to 100 (use bead bar as image, cover some with a cloth Day 4: Subtraction by counting up using Frog, either side of 100, 113 – 78 etc. The difference between the two numbers should not be more than 35 S: Change from £1 (use money line) Day 5: Subtraction by counting up using Frog, either side of 100, 112 – 76 (difference between the two numbers not more than 40)

S: Order months of the year Day 4: Time events in seconds, record in a bar chart, one step is 10 seconds or even 5 seconds depending on the event S: 2 times table Day 5: Collect and represent data in pictograms, one picture represents two units

Mental multiplication and division
S: Count in 3s from 3 to at least 30 Day 1: 3 times table, including division facts and making sure that chn can see division as ‘how many lots of 3 in... 27’? It is the connection between multiplication and division that is a focus as well as learning the facts for the 3x table. S: Count in 4s from 4 to at least 40 Day 2: 4 times table, including division – see above note. S: Division facts for 10 times table Day 3: Write division facts to go with multiplications, use inverses. (E.g. how many groups of 4 is 28 can be written as ? x 4 = 28 AND as 28 ÷ 4 = ? These two statements are equivalent as multiplication is the inverse of division. S: Division facts for 5 times table Day 4: Division within tables, but with remainders  the focus is to get the concept of a remainder – something left over – on the map and to ensure that chn ‘get’ this! S: Division facts for 2 times table Day 5: Division within tables, but with remainders – rehearsing this to get it secure.

Fractions
S: Count in steps of ½ along a number line Day 1: Concept of ½, 1/3 and ¼  parts of shapes and (importantly) strips This (a fraction strip) will be v important for much work on fractions. ASK if not sure! S: Doubles to double 15 Day 2: Find ½ of quantities, including of odd numbers, e.g. ½ of 7, ½ of 15. S: Sort odd and even numbers Day 3: Halving chains investigation (make longest chain they can, Start with a number: If the number is even, halve it, if the number is odd, add 1. Keep going until they get to 1. Try starting with different twodigit numbers, do larger numbers produce longer chains? S: 4 times table Day 4: Find ¼ and ¾ of quantities, use fraction strips S: 3 times table Day 5: Find 1/3 and 2/3 of quantities, use fraction strips
