Year 1 maths worksheet: early subtraction

It is sometimes difficult to find subtraction worksheets that are basic enough for very young children. This page looks at subtracting one or two from 1-digit numbers. There is no number line to help, so it is very much a mental arithmetic exercise. Most children will approach it by counting back one or two, possibly using their fingers to start with.

Don’t forget to colour in the smiley (hopefully) faces at the bottom to show how many were correct.
