This week, we're taking a look at solving word problems involving addition and subtraction. Over the past couple of weeks, children have been practising their addition and subtraction number skills. Solving problems is a great skill for children to learn. Part of this skill is understanding what the question is asking your child to do and which operation they should be using to solve the problem. Year 1 children will focus on solving one step problems, whilst year 2 children can practise some 2 step problems.
