Find the Total Lesson

This Year 2 Find the Total lesson covers the prior learning of adding together, before moving onto the main skill of adding amounts of money to find a total.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. 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.
