In the 'Max Maths, Year 1, Learn Together' book, young learners are introduced to the concept of addition through the engaging context of 'Making and Solving Addition Stories'. These stories help children visualize and understand the process of adding two groups of items together to find a total. The first story features a group of kittens, with two on the floor and four in a basket. By combining these two groups, children can easily see that 2 plus 4 equals 6, leading to the conclusion that there are 6 kittens altogether.

The second story involves a character named Samir, who starts with 6 presents. When he receives an additional 3 presents from his friend Jade, children are encouraged to calculate the new total. By adding the two quantities together, 6 and 3, they arrive at the answer of 9. This simple addition story reinforces the concept that combining two amounts results in a larger total, and in this case, Samir has 9 presents altogether. These stories are not only educational but also make learning maths fun and relatable for Year 1 students.
