Year 1 | Subtracting and Crossing 10 Problem Solving Activity Cards

Year 1 subtraction word problems

Aligned with the maths mastery approach, these Year 1 | Subtracting and Crossing 10 Problem Solving Activity Cards are designed to be used alongside our Year 1 Subtracting and Crossing 10 Problem Solving Lesson Presentation and allows children to take part in hands-on practical activities that would be ideal for either continuous provision, or for during dedicated maths lessons. The cards should be clear enough for children to do independently, once the learning has been modelled in the above presentation. These cards are also brilliant for sticking in children’s books alongside photographs, to demonstrate learning and progression. Great for anti-worksheet schools!

These cards allow children to use their knowledge of subtraction to solve problems, deepen understanding and improve Mathematical fluency.

Topic: Addition and subtraction to 20

Small Steps: Subtraction crossing ten (2)

NC Links: read, write and interpret mathematical statements involving addition, subtraction and equals signs. *Add and subtract one-digit and two-digit numbers to 20, including zero. *Solve one step problems that involve addition and subtraction using concrete objects and pictorial representations , and missing number problems.

TAF Statements: Working towards: Add and subtract one digit number explaining their method verbally, in pictures, or using apparatus.

Working At: Recall all the number bonds to and within 10 and use these to reason with and calculate bonds to and within 20, recognising other associated additive relationships.

Greater Depth – Use reasoning about number and relationships to solve more complex problems and explain their thinking.

Ready-to-progress criteria:  1AS-2 Read, write and interpret equations containing addition, subtraction and equals symbols and relate additive expressions and equations to real-life contexts.

Previous experience: Devise and record number stories, using pictures, numbers and symbols.
