Primary 7 have jumped right back into numeracy this week by completing a number of active learning tasks to revisit large numbers and place value.
We first built a 'million' cube - a 1m x 1m den that would fit (almost) exactly 1 million single unit cubes. We then built 'place value palaces' and used addition to calculate their value.
Today, we used the interstar connector pieces to apply our knowledge of place value further. We created our 'value keys', allocating each colour of piece with a number value. We then used our creativity to build and construct. Finally, we calculated the total value of our creations using our key.
Also, did you know that our body is made up of approximately 7 octillian atoms? That's 7 and then 27 zeros. That's more than all the grains of sand on the whole planet!
