If you can’t add the numbers in your head remember to put the biggest number in your head and use your fingers to count on, on your fingers.
i.e. 10 + 3 Remember 10 in your head.Hold up 3 fingers and put each on down as you count on.
Start with 10 and count on 11, 12, 13. The answer is 13!
Here’s a great Parent explanation of counting on with Carol. (scroll to the bottom of the page for Carol’s video) It’s called Explorer, Key Stage 1, Carol’s Advice for parents, Adding up.
There are lots of other activities and lessons on this site that you can try.
Try them now while they are FREE!

Give your children objects to count out – add and take away with – to help them find the answers. I.e. you could use lego pieces, pennies or even sweets.
You could also make a number line or use a ruler to count forwards and backwards from numbers. Remind children that when adding the answer will be a bigger number and when taking away the answer must be a smaller number. If using a number line remember to jump to the next number as you add. Do NOT count the number you start on. NB: Most children in Year 1 will be using number lines that go up to 20 or 30. Try solving the same problem using both methods – with the number line and with objects to count.
See videos below for help with addition and subtraction on a number line:

Learn numbers which add to 10. Play grab’em with a partner. Get 10 of something (10 lego squares, 10 x 1ps, 10 bits of dry pasta). On the count of 3, both grab as many of the objects as you can. You get a point if you correctly guess how many objects YOUR PARTNER has.
