Subtraction Maths Worksheets For Year 1 (age 5-6)

Many people find subtraction much harder than addition, but in reality we can solve many subtraction problems by adding, or counting on, and this is one of the ways young children learn to subtract.

Knowing addition facts will allow children to work out subtractions (eg if 5 + 3 = 8, then 8 - 5 = 3).

They will also learn mathematical terms related to subtraction, such as take away, how many less, take from etc.

By the end of the year they will be able to quickly count on and back in ones, twos, fives and tens.

The worksheets below will encourage fast mental subtraction techniques.
