Subtraction Videos

Welcome to the SUBTRACTION maths videos.

We recommend starting with the introduction at the top and then working through the videos below.

In these videos you will see how written methods for subtraction progress throughout primary school.  Children begin in Key Stage 1 by using number lines and there are two versions we show children depending on the calculation they are doing.  As they begin to work with larger numbers we introduce the partition column method which reinforces children’s place value knowledge.  Our aim is for all children to be using the efficient compact column method by the end of Key Stage 2

KS1 – Find the Difference Using a Number Line
KS1 – Taking Away Using a Number Line
Lower KS2 – Partitioned Column Method for Subtraction
