Addition and subtraction lessons for unit 1

Most Effective Maths schools are starting the two-week unit on + and – in either week 3 or week 4 of this term.

45 lessons, most brand new, exist to support teachers with this. In Y5 and Y6 there is an increased focus on reasoning. In Y2-Y4 there is an increased focus on mental calculation.

The detailed progression guide sets out the sequence for teaching lessons and suggests where teachers of older year groups may want to use material from the previous year.
