Reception have really impressed us with how quickly they have grasped the concept of subtraction recently.
This week we played subtraction smash which was really popular, many children chose to independently record their results too.
Many children are now able to subitize dice numbers too which is something we have worked hard on in class.
‘You have to smash down how many you roll on the dice’ Ellie
‘I had 9 and then I smashed 6 so there are only 3 left’ Jahsiah
‘I have 3 left so if I smashed them too I’d have 0’ Keeyan
‘Taking away one is the same as one less’ Emma
