001 Discovering Subtraction

24 October 2019

This week in 001 children have been learning the word Subtraction

and what it means to take away. We started with a whole amount of different objects and used dice to decide on a number we would take away. Children would  then work out what the other part amount was  and that would be the answer.

Another strategy children discovered was learning how to use subtraction through stories. For example, There were 12 apples in a tree but 4 fell off. How many apples were left in the tree?
