Magical Maths!

We have been learning about place value in Maths. We have been counting and making numbers with tens and ones. Watch the videos and we will explain.

At home practise counting in tens, see if your child can tell you how many tens and ones are in a number, use food or toys to set out numbers in tens and ones. Watch video 3 below and pretend there are 10 biscuits in each packet and add on the extra biscuits as ones, then you can eat some of the biscuits and even count how many are left!
