Perfecting Place Value

This week in Year 5, we have revisited our understanding of place value. We have been looking at four digit numbers and exploring them using practical resources.

Throughout the week, we have used place value counters, arrow cards and dienes to secure our understanding of thousands, hundreds, tens and ones.  After, we were able to recognise the value of a digit in each number and partition it.

We then used this to solve problems which involved recognising errors in a piece of work and using maths language to explain our thinking. By the end of the week, we were exploring the language of more  than, less than, greater than and equal to. We will continue to explore this next week, when we look at comparing and ordering numbers.

Well done Year 5 for a good effort.
