I hope you have had a good week so far. You have certainly been working hard and it is great to see so much of you work. Well done!
Have a lovely day!
Today, we are going to focus on improving one of our four operations – subtraction. Today’s tasks should improve your speed and accuracy while yu are subtracting numbers.
Task 1a - operations
Let’s get your brains warmed up first! Firstly, I would like you to complete the ‘Subtraction Function Machines’. Remember that the number goes into the function machine, it has something done to it (subtraction) and then the answer comes out.
Task 1b - operations
Now that your brains are warmed up, I would like you to practise your written subtraction. I have included a file with different subtraction strategies to remind you. I would like you to complete either Subtraction Task 1 or 2. You can decide, depending on how confident you feel you are – 1 is fairly straightforward and 2 is a bit harder. You can either use the chimney/column method or you can try one of the other strategies.
If you can’t print the sheet, don’t worry, just write your answers out on paper or in your jotter.
