Subtraction

This week we will be focusing on different areas on subtraction. If you want to challenge yourself, you may choose to alter the numbers to bigger/harder numbers, if you are struggling you could try the same activity with smaller/easier numbers. 

 

Write these sums out into your home learning books and try to solve them. You can then use a calculator to check your answers.
