Week 5 Subtraction Stories


We have loved telling our own subtraction stories in maths this week! We started by retelling stories which linked to one of our topic books, ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ For example: First, the hungry caterpillar had 6 slices of watermelon. Then, he ate through 2 pieces. Now, he only has 4 slices of watermelon left! We discussed different ways for how we could solve a subtraction story for example; using our fingers, a ten frame, drawing pictures & crossing some out, using a number line to count back and counting back from a number in our heads – So many great and useful ideas!
