Pupils will take a deep dive into using the column method for addition whilst working through this worksheet.

Section A kicks off with 4 addition questions where the numbers are already drawn out on a square grid. Two questions need no regrouping and 2 questions do, also in 2 questions the numbers to be added contain a different amount of digits.

Next learners will complete four further addition questions however this time they will have to put the numbers into the column addition layout themselves before completing the addition. A square grid is provided. Included is an addition of two numbers from words.

In section C pupils will spot, explain and correct the mistakes in two complete additions. Lastly, section D challenges learners' understanding of using the column method as they have to fill the gaps to complete three column additions.
