LI: To subtract within 20.

Watch, discuss and solve subtraction problems on the chosen subtraction PowerPoints adapted to your child’s abilities (see different PowerPoints – subtracting within 10 and 20).

Prepare some counters to enable your child to solve subtraction problems.  For example, use colouring pencils, buttons, pasta shapes, etc.

Encourage your child to:

  • read subtraction sentences.
  • use counters to represent numbers.

For example, in order to solve a 5 – 2 task count out 5 counters (e.g Colouring pencils) and then take away from that group of counters 2 counters. Finally, count the remaining counters and record your answer using the appropriate numeral.


  • point to every object when counting.
  • record the answers using appropriate numerals.


Choose worksheets appropriate for your child.

  • Practical Activities: Uses the vocabulary Involved in Subtracting Home Learning Challenges.
