Numeracy Hour

P2D love exploring subtraction through lots of different fun games. We can help each other and become teachers for the morning. Numicon helps us to see what, for example, 10-8 actually looks like and we can give each other problems to solve which involve subtraction.

Some of the resources we use are:
  • dominoes
  • 100 squares
  • number lines
  • snakes and ladders games
  • floor number line
