Exploring Subtraction…

In our Maths lessons this week, we have been exploring different methods to subtract numbers from one another. Some of us have been just like Helpful Hen and have used the resources in the classroom including hundred squares to help us subtract larger numbers.

We have also been looking at vocabulary linked to subtraction including:

take away

subtract

minus

Miss Stewart then challenged us to use the column subtraction method. We are all now a lot more confident using this and know that the ‘golden rules’ are to subtract the ones first and then subtract the tens. We were then able to apply the method when solving worded problems.
