Year 2

Using a Number line.

In maths this week, the children have been learning to use a number line to support them when they are counting. They can be used for addition, subtraction and multiplication. The children were tasked with finding the multiples of 10 and then placing numbers on post-it notes in the right places on the number line. They practised the skill of estimating and also looked at the previous and next multiple of 10 after a given number. At first, some children found this tricky, but they persevered and in the end really enjoyed using this concrete resource.
