Activity: What’s the Difference?

Children use pairs of numbers from the Enrich Phonics and Number Markers to practise subtracting one and two digit numbers to 20.


  • Children locate Phonics and Number Control Markers from their picture.
  • At each marker, they select the pair of numbers and find the difference between them by subtracting the left hand number from the right hand number.
  • They can either record the sum as a number sentence or just record the answer on their Activity Sheet.
