Today you will be subtracting not crossing 10.
If your child/ren find any of the maths lessons tricky then revisit it again until they are feeling more confident.
Today children build on the language of subtraction, recognising and using the subtraction symbol within 20.
The use of zero is important so children know that when nothing is taken away, the start number remains the same or
when the whole group is taken away, there will be nothing left.
They will also use the part whole model alongside practical equipment to reinforce number bonds within 20.
