# Subtraction in Year 5 (age 9-10)

A great collection of pages on mental and written subtraction for Year 5.

A key aspect of subtraction in Year 5 is to, â€˜subtract numbers mentally with increasingly large numbersâ€™. Of course, there comes a point where it is much more sensible to use written methods of subtraction, but it is surprising what can be achieved by calculating â€˜in your headâ€™.

The standard written method should be used confidently, with crossing both the hundreds and tens boundaries.
