Year 5 subtraction worksheets

Here are two worksheets to help assess whether children have a good grasp of subtraction.

They revise the following concepts:

Subtraction is the same as taking away, finding the difference between, and complementary addition.

Subtraction is non-commutative.

When a larger number is subtracted from a smaller number, the answer is negative.

Subtracting a number from another makes it smaller.

Subtracting zero makes no difference to a number.

Subtraction is the inverse of addition.

By year 5 children should have good mental strategies for solving subtraction problems.

These pages, and other similar can be found in our Year 5 subtraction category.
