We have been busy taking away, finding the difference between two numbers, counting back from a number and using the 'minus'/ 'take away'/ 'subtract' symbol. We found this cool song and have been watching it on our new TV.
Pirate Subtraction Song
The children have been working hard with subtraction. They have been counting back from the bigger number, covering holes on the Numicon pieces and drawing subtraction stories with flowers, rugby balls, lollipops and all kinds of wonderful things! The children have been using Maths vocabulary such as: take-away, minus, difference, count back, subtract, symbol, equals, makes, leaves.
