Achieving Together with PRIDE

# Maths

This week we would have been exploring place value in our Maths lessons.

In Year 2 we learn to:

• Count in steps of 2, 3 and 5 from 0, and in tens from any number, forward and backward.
• Recognise the place value of each digit in a two-digit number (tens and ones).
• Compare and order numbers from 0 up to 100; use <, > and = signs.
• Read and write numbers to at least 100 in numerals and words.
• Use place value and number facts to solve problems.

Today can you explore the value of numbers?

We have already looked at the value of numbers and what each digit is worth. We know that a two digit number has tens and ones. We have practised drawing our tens and ones to help us compare numbers and recognise what a number is worth.

e.g.

2 3     3 6

ll …    lll ……

23 is made up of 2 tens and 3 ones. 36 is made up of 3 tens and 6 ones. I know that 36 is greater than 23 because 3 tens is worth more than 2 tens.

Write some one and two digit numbers. Can you draw the tens and ones to show what the numbers are worth?

Challenge: Can you have a go at a 3 digit number?

e.g.

142llll ..

The large square= 100

The lines= 10

The dots= 1
