– check solutions when determining missing numbers in number patterns by repeating the process (Reasoning) |

Solve problems by using number sentences for addition or subtraction | Complete number sentences involving one operation of addition or subtraction by calculating the missing number, eg find _ so that 5+_=13 or 15−_=9 |

– make connections between addition and related subtraction facts to at least 20 (Reasoning) | |

– describe how a missing number in a number sentence was calculated (Communicating, Reasoning) | |
