For our back to school maths lessons, we have been stretching our minds into the world of Year 7 maths. Today, we looked at adding directed numbers: numbers with size and direction.

Firstly, we used +1 and -1 counters to find sets of 0 and work out how many were left.
We used the same method but with drawing the counters in our books.
Finally, we used part-whole models to answer questions with larger numbers.

Our maths lead, Mr. Harrington, described the lesson as ‘lovely work’.
