Lesson Three

Good morning we have yet another beautiful sunny day! Today's focus in Maths is to look at larger numbers.  We are going to include Hundreds, Tens and Ones.  Again we want to use the language that describes the number. 



There is one hundred, two tens and 4 ones in 124. 

The value of the 1 is 100.  The value of the 2 is 20 and the value of the 4 is 4.

Task one:

This is very much a practical and verbal lesson. 

  1. Cut up some paper and write the numbers 1 - 9 on each piece so you will have 9 pieces of paper. 
  2. Now pick three cards to create a three digit number.  
  3. Describe orally your number as I have done above.
  4. Now write it in words.
  5. Now have a go at writing the number in words.  e.g. One hundred and twenty-four.


Task two:

Take a look at the attachment below.  It's a copy of what you would have had in your work books.  If you can print it off do and see if you can match the correct letter to the number.  If you can't print it, you could still look at it on the screen.


Task three:

Now we are going to practise counting on from a given number by adding a hundred each time. 

  1. To start with count up in hundreds from 0 e.g. 0, 100, 200, 300 etc. 
  2. Then pick a number from your cards e.g.  4, 104, 204, 304 etc.  
  3. Now create a three digit number from your cards and practise saying and then writing the next 100.  e.g. 345, 445, 545 etc or three hundred and forty-five, four hundred and forty five, five hundred and forty-five etc.
  4. Don't forget to stop every now and again and describe your number.  You could ask a parent/sibling/carer to shout STOP and then you will say "This number has ? hundreds, ? tens and ? ones",  "The value of the ? is ? etc (as above)".
  5. Challenge yourself to use different units of measurement:  e.g. Use pounds and pence.  Remember there are 100 pennies to 1 pound 100p = £1.00.   or mm and cm Remember there are 10mm to 1 cm, 100 cm to 1m. Again say your answers first then write them out.


Task four:


Just like yesterday, when you go out for your daily walk, see what numbers you can spot.  They could be numbers on front doors, in shop windows or even the price of your shopping.  Now keep adding a hundred to your number.  e.g. If you are in the shops and you buy a chocolate bar (yummy!) for 64p add 100 to it.  How far can you go up?  Remember if you are working in pennies you could say 64p, 164p, 264p or change it to pounds and pence:  64p, £1.64, £2.64 etc. 


Don't forget to look on your Abacus account for games and challenges.  You can always revisit tasks you have completed and see if you can beat your time!
