We Know Our Place – Value!

To begin our maths learning this year, we have been recapping, revisiting and extending our knowledge about Place Value – the value of each digit within a number.  For example, we can tell you the 5 in 350 represents 5 tens, or 50.  However, the 5 in 5,006 represents 5 thousands, or 5,000.  We can even tell you that the 5 in 456,982 represents 5 ten thousands, or 50 thousand.  And if that didn’t impress you enough, we can even tell you that the 5 in 5,876,901 represents 5 million!

It has been brilliant this week to extend our learning with numbers from ten thousands up to 1 million and really understand the value of all digits in a 6 or 7 digit number.

We have also been using our new resources boxes to help us and today we used counters on a place value chart to really visualise which values make up a complete number.

Fantastic resourceful learning year 5, well done!
