This morning Year 2 were set the challenge of making numbers in different ways. They really rose to this challenge! They used lots of different equipment including Numicon, bead strings, cuisenaire rods, Base 10 equipment and rulers to show the different ways they could make numbers. They then looked at how they could represent these different ways using pictures and writing. I was so impressed at their creativity and growth mindsets when thinking about all the numbers! This is a very simple activity that the children could do at home too - maybe you could ask them how many different ways they can make 27p using different coins!
