Column Method Madness!

In Maths, we've been working really hard on learning how to add and subtract using the column method. We all started by doing this practically with our equipment. This was particularly useful for learning about exchanging between tens and ones.

As the week progressed, we used either our equipment or the written column method (or both!) to solve a range of mathematical problems. Some of us even started learning about how to solve 2-step problems, where we had to read the calculation incredibly carefully to work out which two calculations we needed to do to solve them.
