Go, do not be afraid and serve

Year 4


Year 4 had a fabulous time at Leam Lane Library this afternoon where they chose a book they would like to read and shared which books they got and why when we got back to school.

Today Year 4 worked practically to compare representations of 4-digit numbers. We rolled the dice to create a 4-digit number, made it out of Base 10 then used comparative language such as 'greater than' and 'less than' to compare the two numbers.

In today’s Maths lesson, we used Base 10 and Place Value Counters to partition 4-digit numbers by identifying the number of thousands, hundreds, tens and ones. We thought carefully about which number we had to represent and worked together to think about the rules when exchanging.

Representing 4-digit numbers 

In maths this week, Year 4 have been learning about 4-digit numbers and how we represent these using manipulatives and numerals. We discussed the size of the thousands, hundreds, tens and ones Base 10 pieces and what they each represent. We then rolled dice to create a 4-digit number then used the Base 10 pieces to build the number in the correct Place Value column. Well done Year 4 smiley
