This week we will be learning about subtraction.

  • Star words you will need: take away, subtract, subtraction, is equal to, equation, number, object, part, whole, part-part-whole model


  1. Collect 20 objects from your home e.g. buttons, paperclips, raisins
  2. Choose a number between 0-20.
  3. Take away that many objects.
  4. How many objects are left?
  5. You could write the numbers down. E.g. 20 objects to start. Take away 4 and 16 are left.
  6. Say it in a full sentence e.g. “I started with 20 objects. I took away 4 objects and 16 objects are left. 20 take away 4 is 16. 20 subtract 4 is equal to 16.”
  7. Can you write it as an equation? E.g. “20 - 4 = 16”.
  8. Repeat this for a variety of numbers.


Key questions: Can you use objects to show subtraction from 20? How many different numbers can you subtract from 20? Can you say the equation in a full sentence? Can you write an equation?


New Topic: Our World


  • Christians believe that life is God’s gift. All that makes up life – people, the Earth, places, things – are part of that gift. We should appreciate everything in this world and look after our wonderful world.


Read the following story to your child:


Book of Genesis:  Chapter 1
(Children's Version)


In the beginning there was no earth or sky or sea or animals.  And then God spoke in the darkness:  "Let there be light!"  And right away there was light..."That's good!" said God.  "From now on, when it's dark it will be 'night' and when it's light, it will be 'day'."

The evening came and the night passed and then the light returned.  That was the first day.

On the second day, God made the earth and over it He carefully hung a blue sky.  He stood back and admired His creation.  "That's good too!" said God and the second day was over.

The next morning God looked around and thought, "The earth needs to be a bit more organized."  So, He put all the water in one place and all the dry land in another.  When He had finished that, God made plants to cover the land.  Dandelions and daffodils appeared.  All sorts of trees and grasses began to grow.

On the fourth day, God thought, "The daylight still needs a bit more work and the night is just too dark."  So, He made the sun to light the sky during the day and the moon and stars to add a bit of sparkle to the night. 

The next day, God turned his attention to the water he had collected in the oceans.  "I want these waters full of life!"  In no time, there were millions of small fish swimming in the ocean.  God made birds, too.  He sent them flying through the air. 

On the sixth day, God added creatures to the land.  He made lions and tigers and bears.  He made rabbits and sheep and cows.  He added everything from ants to zebras to the land.  But He still felt something was missing.  So God added Mankind to enjoy and take care of all that He had created.  God looked around and was happy with all He had made.

After six days, the whole universe was completed.  On the seventh day God had a nice long rest and enjoyed looking at all He had made.




Ask your child the following questions:

  • How many days did God take to create the world? (7)
  • What was the first thing GoD made? (day and night)
  • What did God make on the second day?
  • Can you name any of the things that God put on the land? (danedlions, daffodils, trees, grass)
  • What day did he add the sun? (4th)
  • What did God put in the water/ocean? (fish)
  • What did God add on the 6th day? (creatures, animals, lions etc man and woman)


Ask your child: What do you love about our world?

(Anything in the natural

For example: stars, moon, the sky, rivers, ponds, animals, clouds, rainbows, mountains, grass, trees, people, food, rain, sun, plants, flowers, the seaside…)



  1. Draw and cut out a A4 size heart shape
  2. In the heart draw something that you love in the world
  3. Write somewhere in the heart “God created the world”
  4. If you can think of more than one thing you love – you can cut out more hearts and draw more pictures.
