The children started to learn about subtraction week commencing 16-03-20. If you attended the briefing on Friday afternoon in RF, you will have heard that the children need lots of practical experience on this subject to secure their learning. I will be adding practical ideas and worksheets as the week progresses.
Start all subtraction sessions with this clip:

Then use one of these each day:

Please see attached document.
You might want to print off the attached subtraction cards, so the children can use their toys/sweets to solve the number problems. If you do not have a printer, you could write out different number problems for the children to attempt.
Please label the work week 1 subtraction and add it to either a new folder, or your child's homework folder.
