This week we have been learning about all kinds of subtraction.  We have been counting back, taking away as well as finding the difference between two numbers.  As always the children worked really well with their buddies to play the different games and practise improve their skills.

At home you could practise by asking them to count back from any number or give them simple take away questions to solve in their head.  Why not try linking them to the number bonds that they know e.g  they know that 7+3=10 so can they solve 10-7 or 10-3.  Rapid recall of these simple number facts is a really important skill that will help with all areas of Maths.
