This week we would like you to practise taking away.

There are many words used to 'take away' such as 'subtract' and 'minus'. See how many you can list. Talk to your child about how these are the same and want us to do the same thing. By taking away you are going to be having less of an amount.

Here are some ideas of how you could do this. You do not have to do all of them just pick the ones that you would like to do.
