The start of the lesson reviews writing numbers as words by completing a cross number puzzle. The development phase builds on this through using a place value grid to identify and compare the value of each digit. As students’ learning progresses they begin to manipulate number sets to find the largest and smallest numbers possible.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
- All students should be able to recognise the value of a digit using a place value table.
- Most students should be able to recognise the value of a digit using mental methods.
- Some students should be able to calculate the largest sum and difference of two numbers through manipulating the place value.
