Place Value Fun in the Sun

We have been working on place value in numbers a lot so far this term. This means that we think about the value of each digit in a number.  In the number 465, the 6 is in the tens place so it has a value of 60.  The 4 is in the hundreds place so it has a value of 400.

Today, we took our place value equipment along to our sports lesson at Paco Cantos for a Place Value Race to 100!

We worked together in teams to see who could reach 100 first.  We had to run fast, think fast and think well in order to win, but we realised that there was some luck involved, too!

Did this activity help your understanding of place value? How?
How did you feel about doing maths in the sports lesson?
Are there other maths activities we could do in our sports lessons?

Thank you to Miss Jordan’s class for sharing the idea!
