Putting our place-value thinking caps on in Y321-09-2020 | 07:10:51 | Comments Off on Putting our place-value thinking caps on in Y3

We have been working so hard on our knowledge of place-value over the last few weeks in Year 3. Last week, we were set a tricky challenge – how many different ways can the number 340 be made using only hundred and tens counters?

This started off straight forward but then our teachers told us that for level 2 of the challenge, we were only allowed to use 2 hundred counters rather than 3. This then went down to only 1 hundred counter (and lots of tens!)

Our teachers were so impressed with our understanding of exchanging counters of equal value!
