Subtraction

On Monday, we started looking at subtraction. We were focussing on subtracting a one-digit number from a two-digit number, using a bead string. If you’re going to get your child subtracting, as with addition, it’s important that they have practical resources to support them at this stage, rather than being introduced to formal written methods. If you don’t currently have something like a bead string, it’s a good idea to just revise addition, rather than moving onto subtraction. If you would like your child to practise subtraction, there are resources below. I have only included work for subtracting a one-digit number from a two-digit number, as I will cover taking tens and two-digit numbers as we move forward with distance learning.
