In the 'Max Maths' curriculum for Year 1, children are introduced to the concept of addition through engaging and relatable scenarios known as 'addition stories'. These stories are designed to help young learners understand the process of combining two groups of items to find the total amount. In this particular lesson, children are invited to 'Learn Together' by exploring simple addition problems that relate to everyday objects and situations.

For instance, one story starts with Jade, who has 3 red flowers, while Padma has 4 blue flowers. The story then reveals that when you put both Jade's and Padma's flowers together, they have 7 flowers in total, demonstrating the addition of 3 + 4 = 7. Another story involves Toby, who has a collection of 6 toy cars and 3 toy aeroplanes. By combining these two groups of toys, children can see that Toby has a total of 9 toys, which is shown through the equation 6 + 3 = 9. These simple narratives provide a foundation for understanding addition and help children visualize the mathematical concept in a fun and meaningful way.
