What skills we want children to develop
Use knowledge to solve Reasoning and Problem Solving questions such as:
True or False?
When I count in 10’s I will say the number 10100?
Make up an example/Give further examples
Create six digit numbers where the digit sum is five and the thousands digit is two.
Eg 3002000 2102000
What is the largest/smallest number?
A number rounded to the nearest thousand is 76000. What is the largest possible number it could be?
Jack says his number rounded to:
- the nearest 10 is 1,150
- the nearest 100 is 1,200
- the nearest 1,000 is 1,000
What could his number be? Find all the possibilities.
- How is the value of zero represented on a place value grid or number?
- What is the same but different about these numbers?
- Will this number round up or down? Explain why.
- What do we need to know to be able to compare numbers?
- Explain today’s date in Roman Numerals
- If one million is the whole, what could the parts be?
