In year 2 we have been exploring subtraction. 

This week in Maths we have been exploring subtraction.  We looked at what words mean  the same as subtraction.

Here are some examples:

  • Take away
  • Minus 
  • Less than
  • Difference

We  used a range of resources to help us subtract numbers before we looked at patterns to help us subtract mentally.

We found out that if we did 7-4= 3 we could do 70-40 in our heads and that would equal 30.
