We have begun the term exploring and investigating number and place value. We have been using multilink, dienes (base 10), arrow cards and other practical equipment to help further deepen our understanding of number.
We have been looking at using number lines to position numbers up to 1000. We had a great time outside using chalk and white boards estimating where numbers would go. We also loved drawing number lines on our tables in whiteboard pen.....it did wipe off afterwards!
For the rest of this half term, we are exploring addition and subtraction. We have been investigating lots of different ways to add and subtract multiples of ones, tens and hundreds from a 3 digit number. We have been using practical equipment, drawing pictures to explain and show that we understand and prove what the answers are. We have also been 'magpieing' other people's good ideas to help us consolidate our learning!
