Learning to use Place Value Houses
This week during Math we have been looking at place value. We have been using place value houses to help us identify the value of numbers with up to 3 digits. The children were able to name how many hundredths, tens and ones within a given number up to 1000. The children really enjoyed playing a new game where they had to compete against the other team to make a number up to 1000 using wooden and plastic place value blocks. They especially enjoyed the way Lynley gave them special names using 'Alliteration' Harry the Hurricane, Lightning bolt Lydia and O for Awesome Olivia were just a couple of examples of our new competitors names!
