In year Four, the second year in KS2, children will be exposed to more difficult addition and subtraction problems in Maths, such as four figure numbers or negatives. They will however be taught the best methods to use to work out the answers to these problems.
Addition and subtraction is adding numbers together or taking them away from each other. Knowing how to work out addition and subtraction problems comes in very handy when dealing with money in everyday life. Imagine that you have £10 and wish to buy two items that cost £3.47 and £6.91... do you have enough money? Well, £3.47 + £6.91 = £10.38 so you'd be 38p short! See how important it is to be able to add and subtract?
