Addition Videos

Welcome to the ADDITION maths videos.

We recommend starting with the introduction at the top and then working through the videos below.

In these videos you will see how written methods for addition progress throughout primary school.  Children begin Key Stage 1 by using number lines but as they begin to work with larger numbers we introduce the partition column method which reinforces children’s place value knowledge.  Our aim is for all children to be using the efficient compact column method by the end of Key Stage 2.

KS1 – Addition on a Number Line
Lower KS2 – Partitioned Column Method for Addition
Lower KS2 – Partitioned Column Method for Addition (without carrying)
KS2 – Column Addition (Compact)
