Place Value Progression and Activities

I have also produced progression documents for place value.

  • Place Value

Remember, if you click on the picture, you will access the full document, however the hyperlinks won’t work. To download the zipfile, click here (Mediafire) or here (4share):

If you do download the zipfile, be patient it takes a while. You will need to unzip it, open the folder and locate the word document: LT Place Value. Everything hyperlinks from there.

I have attached a step by step guide for unzipping the folder. click here

And here are 3 Place Value activities as a taster…

  • 5 digit number mystery
  • Fast Track

Year 4 Digit Sum (plan)

Telling the time, reading timetables and working together.

Telling the time is something that quite a lot of my class need to practise often. I have already uploaded some of the activities I have written this year, but here is a few more. On this revisit we are focusing on 24 hour clock, reading time tables and collaborating to solve problems. Because we are working on block D, I have tried to make links to other block D objectives, so there is a bit of coordinates and a bit of finding the difference between times.

I adapted two time puzzles I found on edhelper.com to make them collaborative. To find the original puzzles click here.

Below are some useful telling the time websites that we will visit.

Shape Puzzle

This is a very flexible puzzle. It can be adapted by making the grid bigger or smaller, the ‘shapes’ can be altered into almost any cross curricular images and the numbers can be given units to make it a converting units puzzle. Below are some examples of how I have adapted the problem over time.

Coordinate grids

These next activities are very popular with my class. I began by using them as ‘information gap’ or ‘mystery’¬†activities, where children worked in pairs or small groups sharing clues and solving the problems together. I have moved over the year to children solving them individually as they have solved them so many times. Hope you like them. Again, like the nicknames problems, we have revisited these problems in lots of different contexts to fit in with the different cross curriculat themes. They lend themselves to shape, space and measure objectives. I have used all of these with my year 4 class this year.

Instructions.

  1. Children cut up the pictures to be sorted onto grid. My class have found it helpful to put their initials on the back of each picture.
  2. Read through all the clues.
  3. Where a clue tells you exactly where a picture is to be placed, place it there.
  4. Tick off the clues as you solve then.
  5. When puzzle is solved, make sure solution fits all the clues.
