This week we will focus on number and place value
Place value is the value of each digit in a number. It is understanding that 56 is made up of 5 tens (50) and 6 ones.

To use part-whole models to partition numbers
The part whole model is a way of representing the relationship between a ‘whole’ and its component parts.
To understand place value using the expanded form
1 ten + 3 ones = 13
20 + 19 = 39
To use place value charts for partitioning
Partitioning numbers means being able to recognise the value of each digit within a number given by its place.
The number represented here is 35. The children will learn that both images represent 35 as there are 3 tens in the tens column.
To compare objects
Classifying and sorting involves finding things that are the same, or alike, and grouping them by specific traits or attributes.
To compare numbers
Children can use these symbols to show the compare numbers.
5 > 2 this shows that 5 is greater than 2, and 2 is less than 5.
56 < 67 this shows that 56 is less than 67 as 56 has less tens.
3 + 4 = 7 this show that 3 and 4 is the same as 7.
