Fact Families Lesson

This Year 1 Fact Families lesson covers the prior learning of counting and how many there are altogether, before moving onto the main skill of addition facts and commutativity.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
