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.
