Today I'd like you to complete pages 1 and 2 of the home learning booklet that you took home.
To complete them, you will need to add two 4-digit numbers.
Remember, when you are using column method, it is very important for you to use place value columns carefully. There isn't enough space to write in the booklet, so use your maths home learning log.
Add up the numbers in each row of the place value grid. Then add them to find the total
Match the total to the answer in the box
Remember to start from the ones!
For number 1, add up the place value counters in each box.
Then add 2 boxes together to see if they make the given total. If they don't, try another combination.
For number 2, you need to find the missing number that means there are too many ones for the column.
For number 3, explain whether or not there is an exchange. Perhaps you could write a column addition to prove it.
