Adding and subtracting.

Adding and subtracting.

We have been adding and subtracting this week in maths. It is really important for us to remember the +,- and = symbols and what they mean in a number sentence.

We have been reminding ourselves that when we add 2 amounts our answer is always larger than the two numbers we started with. We gave reasons for why the number gets larger, can you remember why?

6 + 8 = 14

When we are subtracting or taking away we remembered that our answer will be less than the first number in our number sentence. We talked about why this happens, can you remember?

14 – 8 = 6
