001 What is a ten? What is a one? Let’s find out with 001

5 September 2019

This week in Maths children are learning about the value of numbers. Children experimented using MABs which are also known as multi-based arithmetic blocks. Whereby one cube represents one unit and a ten cube represents ten units. Children used their inquiry skills to determine how many tens and how many ones are in a number? Working in pairs and as individuals, children chose a double digit number and showed their working out using the MABs as demonstrated in our photos below. At the end of the session the class reflected on what they had learnt by choosing a double digit number for their peer and children would show their working out in front of the class.  It was amazing to see how each individual was able to understand the concept of what a ten is and what a one is in the very first lesson?  Well done 001!
