Counting Back Lesson

This Year 1 Counting Back lesson covers the prior learning of using the language of subtraction, before moving onto the main skill of solving subtractions by counting back on a number line.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
