It's time to engage your MATHS brain!


Happy Monday Robins! Welcome to this weeks Maths learning journey!


This week we are moving on from addition and beginning to look at SUBTRACTION! We have not yet looked at subtraction this year and so we will begin from the basics today and build upon what we learn as we move through the days and weeks.


Today works as an introduction into the concept of subtraction and trying to help the children understand what it means and the process behind it.

Some top tips to remember when working through the questions!
