Exploring place value with paddlepop sticks

20160719 134100 smaller

This week Upper First explored place value in numbers and strategies for problem solving. They used paddlepop sticks to count big numbers and calculators to solve addition problems with Professor Digit. The children became so involved with the hands on materials that they developed their own open-ended solutions and discussed strategies collaboratively. At the end of each lesson Mrs Connell just stood back and observed their exploration.
