In the 'Max Maths' workbook for Year 1, Practice 4 is all about engaging young learners with addition through the context of storytelling. The section titled "Making and solving addition stories" presents a series of scenarios that encourage children to combine two groups of items to find a total. For instance, one story involves Samir's 4 bunnies and Jade's 3 teddy bears, prompting students to calculate the total number of soft toys they have together. Another story requires combining the numbers of red and white balloons to find out how many balloons there are in total. These simple narrative problems help children practice their addition skills in a fun and relatable way.

Moving a step further, the workbook also encourages children to create their own addition stories. They are given various scenarios involving boys and girls, bananas and pineapples, lollipops and candies, and happy and sad faces, where they need to fill in the blanks with appropriate numbers to complete the addition sentences. This exercise not only tests their addition prowess but also stimulates their creativity and understanding of real-world situations. Additionally, the workbook includes a section where students can observe pictures and complete addition stories based on what they see, further enhancing their ability to link visual cues with mathematical concepts. The workbook concludes with tasks that require filling in missing numbers in addition sentences, allowing for a comprehensive reinforcement of the addition process.
