Maths – place value

Saturday 01 October 2022

Year 1 and 2 have been focusing on place value for the past few weeks. Knowing the order of numbers, what each digit is worth and how numbers can be partitioned (split up) are all essential.

Year 1s are sorting, ordering and comparing numbers using great than > and less than < symbols.

Year 2s are using base 10 equipment (tens and ones) place value charts, part whole models and Numicon to represent and partition numbers.

Help your child at home by talking about numbers, comparing them and finding out how many tens and ones a number has.
