This morning, Year 4 have been learning how to compare decimal numbers.
They have had to identified the value of each digit to know which number is larger. They then took part in Active maths activities to help consolidate this learning.
Children worked together in teams. They were each given a set of cards, with one child having one card each that had a decimal number on that card. The children were to order themselves numerically with their numbered card from smallest to largest. The team that got into order the quickest were the winners! Children had lots of fun, showing teamwork, communication and knowledge as they used mathematical knowledge of decimals and numbers.
Line them up!
In this activity children had a relay race to go and collect a decimal place card, they then had to place their cards on to a number line in ascending order. The team to have done this in the quickest time were the winners. Well done to all children who took part in this.
Would year 4 be tricked by this dizzying challenge?!…. of course not! In this game, we had to act quick! Scanning two decimal numbers and using knowledge of place value to assess which was the larger. Working as a team, the child with the smallest value number had to sit down quick! I was very impressed with all coffee the children in year 4 who demonstrated great knowledge and enthusiasm today- it was fantastic to get active too!
