Level 2 and 3 subtraction word problems

You’re downloading this resource from indigo987


Two sheets of simple subtraction word problems using a variety of vocabulary, mainly TU - TU but with some 3 digit numbers. I used with low ability Year 4. The first page is slightly harder than the second page. I printed the appropriate sheet off for each group, cut them up and let the children choose which questions they wanted to stick in their book, draw a numberline for and answer - very motivating as they tried to be the one who had answered the most!
