Plus 1 gently guides a pupil to use mental maths techniques. The book makes sure that the basic foundations of number are in place. It systematically covers topics to ensure that no gaps remain and allows for further progress.
By the end of the book, the pupil will be able to:
- Confidently count on and back
- Know doubles up to 10
- Add or subtract up to 10
- Know number bonds to 20
- Work out one more and one less
- Be confident reading numbers
- Understand the concepts of more and less, counting in 2s, counting on and back in 10s and many more concepts.
All this brings added confidence and acts as a launch pad for future learning.
