Comparing Numbers: Negative Numbers

SKU M4IL80755
Key Stage 2 Maths Year 4

The starter in this lesson challenges your class to add a thousand to a variety of numbers.

It then introduces negative numbers by asking children what would happen if they subtracted 1000 from 869.

The slides then show children the difference between a positive and negative number, giving them opportunities to count in given steps across zero and calculate the difference between a positive and negative integer.
