Monkeying Around with Subtraction #RumbleintheJungle #maths #eyfs

This week Reception have been busy getting to grips with subtraction. We were inspired by the song “5 Little Monkeys Swinging in the Tree” which sees a naughty crocodile gradually eating one monkey at a time from the tree. This got us thinking – What if the crocodile ate more than one at a time? How many would be left then?
We applied this scenario to lots of different subtraction questions. We learnt that the – sign means to take away and that we need to remove objects whenever we see it. We love getting hands on with Maths in Reception!
