Ordering numbers. 

In Maths we looked at ordering numbers. We used our reasoning to say that 56 is bigger than 55 because they both have the same number of tens but 56 has 6 ones whereas 65 has 5 ones. 

We then looked at three digit numbers. 234 is smaller than 334 because 234 has 2 hundreds but 334 has 3 hundreds. 

We then went onto decimals. We used our reasoning to decide that 6.4 had to be bigger than 6.3 because they both have 6 ones but 6.4 has 4 tenths and 6.3 has three tenths. We discussed which was bigger- 1.3 or 1.30 and the children gave their own reasons for their choice before deciding they were exactly the same. 

Very interesting lesson.
