Learning Together Respecting Each Other


Maths focus week beginning 8th June

For the rest of this term we are going to revise the important skills and methods we have been learning over the year.  One of the most important of these is place value understanding.  This week we are going to remind ourselves of the place value of different digits through practice tasks, investigations, games and puzzles.


Choose whichever size numbers you feel you need to work on.  As a general rule when recognising the place value of each digit; Year 4 work in thousands, Year 5 in tens of thousands, Year 6 in hundreds of thousands and millions.  There is also some practice with hundreds numbers and decimals.  However, go with whatever you are comfortable with, don't worry about the year group.
