Pupils will take a deep dive into subtraction whilst working through this worksheet. Section A kicks off by asking learners to identify words from a given list that are frequently used for subtraction.

Next, in section B pupils complete 4 column subtraction questions where the numbers are already drawn out on a square grid. Then learners will complete four further subtraction questions however this time they will have to put the numbers into the column layout themselves before completing the subtraction. A square grid is provided. Included is a subtraction of two numbers from words.

In section D pupils will identify equivalent calculations to aid them with their mental and written methods for subtraction. Lastly, section D challenges learners' understanding of using the column method as they have to fill the gaps to complete three column subtractions.
