As usual you need to begin by practising your Gem Maths. After that you are going to continue to build your knowledge of numbers to 100. Before half term we had got to 80 so this week we are going to focus on the numbers from 80 to 90. Practice counting up and down in 1s from 80 to 90 then back again.
This week the focus is going to be on place value. This means we are learning to understand how much the digits are worth and what they represent in numbers up to one hundred.
Hopefully you have been working through all the starter activities so you have a good knowledge of the numbers on the hundred square.
Today you are going to begin by doing these dot to dots as a fun way to explore counting to one hundred.
Now you are going to think about the place value of the numbers to one hundred. You need to know what each digit is worth in a number. We do this by partitioning.
For example, 72.
What does the 7 represent? What does the 2 represent? It is useful to think of the digits as being in columns - the tens and the ones columns. When we split the number into these two parts, that is partitioning.
In this case, the 7 represents 7 tens which is 70. The 2 represents 2 ones. Put them together and you get seventy-two. Practice partitioning some numbers to 100 then have a go at the questions below.
- Today, we would like you to look at the Spot the difference activity below. Have a look at the images of the Three Little Pigs, what can you see that is different? Write them in your book and explain what the differences are using the conjucntion 'but'.
