Today in 6 White we were consolidating our understanding of place value. To do this we used both pictorial and concrete methods. We worked as a team to use counters and Place Value Grids to represent large numbers and pushed ourselves to try and use the counters to complete a subtraction sum. To do his we had to work well as a team, use the correct mathematical language and communicate our reasoning clearly. We had great fun!
