  • Hi - the addition equivalent has a cursive option, any chance I could get one for the subtraction word problems too?
    Thank you!

    • Hi there Clareyh, thanks for your comment! We do not have an exactly similar version of addition however, I have found this resource: http://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t2-m-470-3-digit-number-addition-maths-challenge-cards/alt366573 do let me know if this is not what you're looking for and I can help you further. :)

    • These are far too tricky! Some the same level as the subtraction ones would be fab please! Thank you.

    • I agree! Addition cards at a similar level to the subtraction ones would be great for our Year 3 SEN interventions.

    • I love the subtraction ones and I would love some with a similar level of difficulty but for addition.

      , Jan 20th
    • Hi there all, thanks for your comments! I have requested an addition version which is of the same difficulty as this subtraction resource. We will be in touch if we are able to make this. :)
