We have been exploring the order numbers and symbols go in when we add. We moved cards around to come up with different number sentences and then proved we were right using numicon.

We practised referring to the equals sign as ‘is the same as’. When we used that language, a few of us realised and proved that it is ok to write 10 = 6 + 4.
