Solve addition sums and interpret grid coordinates to reveal the picture.

Use this set of engaging addition worksheets as a fun way to consolidate student understanding of simple addition

These worksheets are perfect for maths rotations and will keep students guessing what picture will be revealed.

The resource includes:

• one Shape Grid page
• ten Mystery Pattern Grid worksheets.
• ten answer pages (these reveal the addition sums and the mystery picture for each worksheet).

The shapes on the Shape Grid apply to all the worksheets, so you only need to print a few of these pages off at a time. Alternatively, project the Shape Grid on a screen for students to see while they work.

## Scaffolding & Extension Tips

In addition to individual student work time, use this worksheet as a:

• maths rotation activity
• lesson exit ticket
• fast finisher activity.

The sums across the pages of the resource gradually increase in total.

• pages 1–3, sums up to 25
• pages 4–5, sums up to 50
• pages 6–10, sums with totals between 25 and 100.

Provide students with appropriate pages that match their ability levels. Encourage students to use their favourite mental addition strategy to solve the problems.

Turn this teaching resource into a sustainable activity by printing on cardboard and slipping it into a write-and-wipe sleeve. Students can record their answers with a whiteboard marker, then erase and reuse.

Additionally, project the worksheet onto a screen and work through it as a class by having students record the answers and draw the picture in their notebooks.
