This week we have been learning to subtract in different fun ways.
Robins on a tree
“We had 10 robins on a tree, 3 of them flew away, how many are left?” We also use a number line to practise counting back.
One of the children is the naughty elf and takes some candy canes, the children count how many have been taken and how many are left.
Some of the children are confident in subtraction from 10 and are using a number line to 20 to count back. This time we took baubles from the Christmas tree.
Santa has 10 presents on his sleigh, some fall off how many are left?
