Number stories

on

In maths we have been learning to add and subtract. We made up lots of number stories to show how we can record problems.

”Once upon a time there were 7 submarines in the deep ocean. Suddenly 2 disappeared, how many were left? 7 – 2 = 5”

 

 

 

“One day there were 2 children. 1 had 4 cakes and the other had 6. How many altogether? 4 + 6 = 10”

 

“Once upon a time 2 boys had some cakes, 1 had 4 and the other had 5. How many did they have altogether? 4 + 5 = 9”

“One day a girl had 20 sweets and she ate 2. How many did she have left? 20 – 2= 18”
