This half term Year 6 will be focusing on place value. They will order, compare and represent different numbers up to the value of ten million. We will round numbers to 10, 100 and 1000 and then within ten million. After that, they will work on negative numbers by counting forwards and backwards through 0. Children will be problem solving and reasoning throughout their learning to deepen their understanding.
