Place Value.

This week we have been learning about place value.

We have been building on our prior knowledge and increasing our skills to 5 digit numbers, knowing what each digit is worth depending on where it is in the number.

There was a lot of maths skills that came into this task. We have to pick single digit numbers and think about the possibility of a larger or smaller number coming next. Using the information we decided where the number we selected should go to make the largest possible five digit number. We then swapped the numbers around to make the smallest number, compared them and plotted the two numbers on a number line! A great deal to think about but we did a fantastic job and gave wonderful explanations as to why the numbers had changed.
