This symbol or picture means Take away

Can you tell a grown up what this number problem says:

5 -  2  =

There are 5 ladybirds. We need to take away 2.

When we take away 2, there are 3 left.

Now it's your turn.

Remember you can get some lego bricks, lego people, cars, wooden blocks or pasta to help solve the problems.

You can write the sums and answers in your book.

4 - 2 =                6 - 4 =             7 - 4 =

9 - 7 =               3 - 2 =             10 - 8 =

11 - 4 =           12 -  7 =             15 - 5 =

16 - 7 =           14 - 8 =              17 - 6 =
