Subtraction in Room 5


As the learners in Room 5 are becoming confident  with their addition they have now moved on to subtraction.  At the beginning of term they were revising subtraction up to ten and now they are have moved on, by subtracting up to twenty.  I am very proud of the progress they are making and how they can share the different strategies they find helpful for subtraction, including using a number line and 100 square, their fingers and picturing the numbers in their head.  Yesterday the children worked at four different stations to practise these strategies.  Help your child at home by asking them a variety of subtraction sums up to twenty.
