Subtracting numbers by counting back.

Last week we practised taking away practically singing nursery rhymes and moving objects away while playing games.

This week we are learning to subtract by jumping and counting back on a number line. The bravest will also learn to record their own subtraction sentences!

 

Let’s try to take away 3 from 5, it can also be written 5-3.

Always start on the largest number, in this case it is 5,  and count back the number you need to take away, in this case it is 3.

 

 Position the frog on 5

 

  Then make the frog jump back 3 steps.

What number does it land on?

        5 take away 3 is 2

       or 5 – 3 = 2

 

Let’s practise!

Practise jumps back from different numbers on the number line using a dice. What number do you land on?

Try to solve the subtraction sentences below.

Remember to start jumping back from the greatest number. Check your results by crossing out the objects you are taking away. How many are left?

 

 

For the bravest mathematicians, try these:

Key questions to ask your child:

What is the new amount?

Can you show me the take away / subtract sign?

How many left?

Is the number getting bigger or smaller?

What does subtract / take away mean?

Day 1

Maths

Your child has been issued with a username and password for the online game called NUMBOTS.

 

https://play.numbots.com/#/account/school-login/48230. 

 

Your child can log in and complete basic number activities which are linked to their level. Your child has been issued with their username and password however, if this is lost then please email the teacher on  reception@dmpa-tkat.org. It is expected that your child accesses these resources for a minimum of 15 minutes per day. Teachers can access and monitor who is using these resources.

                                

Day 2

Maths

Today we would like you to practise matching the numeral to the quantity. We have attached a worksheet which you can access, or your child can play some of the games below. If you are struggling with this, you can use things in the home. An example of this is calling a number out and the child uses their toys to count the correct amount.

                        

 

 

Day 3

Maths

In maths we would like you to practise ordering numbers. You can do this practically or use the resources saved as ‘day three ordering numbers’. You can also access the links below for interactive and engaging games.

                            

 

Day 4

Maths

We would like to you revisit ‘one more and one less’. We have attached a work sheet for this saved as ‘day 4 one more one less’. There are many ways that you can do this. You can use toys and find 1 more and 1 less. You could call a number and get them to tell you one less. You can also click on the link below to play some games for one more, one less.

                     

 

 

Day 5

Maths

We have saved an activity worksheet in the file name ‘day five spring adding activity’. Your child needs to count the spring pictures and write them on the sheet in the box. They can then add the images together to create totals.
