Christmas Subtraction 

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.

The naughty elf pinches the candy canes!

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.

Subtracting from 20

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.
