Year 5 | Counting Backwards Through Zero Worksheets

In these Year 5 worksheets on counting backwards through zero, a number line is presented, including negative numbers. Your class is tasked with using this number line to solve a series of questions that involve adding and subtracting negative numbers, and crossing the “0” mark. By counting in a positive direction, pupils will complete number sentences that begin with a negative number. This process is then repeated as they count in a negative direction starting from a positive number.

Counting backwards through zero will help learners develop a clear conceptual understanding of the relationship between positive and negative numbers on the number line. With these Year 5 counting backwards through zero worksheets, the use of a number line provides a visual aid for pupils to grasp the concept of counting backwards through zero, enhancing their spatial reasoning skills.

Our Year 5 counting backwards through zero worksheets are aligned with KS2 number and place value on the primary national curriculum. All of our Year 5 number and place value worksheets can be combined with your ideas for primary maths activities, learning resources, teaching material, visual aids, games, differentiation, display boards, homework, and lesson plans.
