Maths Time
This week, at Maths Time, we are going to solve problems, using our addition and subtraction skillsyes
Today, you need your addition brains switched on, to help you solve each problem.
We have done the first one for youlaugh

There are 7 giraffes eating yummy leaves. 3 more come over to join. How many giraffes are there now?

To help us find the answer, we are going to draw the two different amounts of animals from the problem. So, first, we will need 7 giraffes, and then 3 more, like this:

Then, we count how many giraffes there are altogether. So, the answer to the problem is 10. 
The addition sum to this problem would be 7+3= 10.
