What is your advice about? Teaching KS1 maths

1: Use numicon! It can be used for addition, subtraction, division and multiplication!

2: Practise your number bonds *within* 20. First number bonds to 3, then 4, then 5 etc…

3: Calculate don’t count. Children should try to use their number bonds to jump to 10, 8+6 becomes 8+2+4 becomes 10+4 = 14.  

4: Play with numbers in open ended problems – how many ways can you make 12? Use + – x or /.

5: Keep it fun and try to relate to a topic or something they can relate to!
