In Maths we have been learning to read, write and represent numbers within 100. We have been deepening our understanding of the place value system by identifying 2-digit numbers as groups of ten and ones.
‘Five groups of ten are equal to 50.’
‘Seven tens and two ones make 72.’
To help us represent the tens and ones in a number, we used Dienes.
After this, we moved on to using strategies to add and subtract numbers within 100. Some of us preferred to use Dienes, however many of us chose to use number lines, bead string and counters. We all used part whole models to help use to see the relationships between the numbers in the equation.
