A nice and simple one to start us back in the new half term, Year 4, just a bit of practice on that crucial place value knowledge. Log on to Mathletics and you'll have two new tasks - Place Value to Thousands and Place Value 3. For Place Value to Thousands, all you have to do is match up the digit to the place value - no trickery, just Thousands, Hundreds, Tens and Ones.
In Place Value 3, you've got an abacus which shows different amounts in the different place values - you've just got to say what the whole number would be, like this;
If, as I hope, you blast through that revision in no time at all then you've earned yourself a reward - time to go on a game, Guardians: Defenders of Mathematica. That's right, playing a game in a maths lesson, who'd have thought it? Select your character from warriors, rangers, elves, wizards, earn new equipment and level your character up - I'm expecting you to complete the Palace of Place Value once you've done the training stage. Like all decent games it starts off easy, but gets harder!
