Maths – this week you’ll be revising formal written subtraction

Below are 3 videos to show how we progressed through written subtraction methods over the year. They will all get you to the answer but the earlier methods take longer.

Alternatively, you could write or make your name in hieroglyphs


Practise your touch type Egyptian style. Why not take a screenshot of your message and post it to our blog for everyone to translate? I’ll post one too.

Just for fun

Make a life sized message in hieroglyphs. Using items from round your house that match the Egyptian symbols to spell out a message. Obviously none of us have a lion at home but you might have toy lion.
