Can I read, write and partition whole numbers to 1000?

### Example review questions

• Can you write in figures the number two hundred and seven?
• Read these numbers: 671 and 617. Which is smaller? How do you know?
• 328 is made up of 300, 8 and what?
• 472 can be partitioned into 300 + 170 + 2. Can you partition 472 in other ways?
• Which multiples of 10 are between 386 and 421?
• What is the value of the digit 5 in these numbers? 352, 65, 511

### Teaching guidance

This teaching guidance document suggests some of the key vocabulary, models, images and practical equipment that children should experience and be able to use. It also includes some teaching tips to provide a few starting points for ways of supporting children with this area of mathematics.

These resources are to support children in guided or independent work. Roll over the highlighted resources for a description.

#### Place value This interactive teaching program (ITP) is an ICT-based tool to support the exploration of place value. Place value ITP allows the child or teacher to represent, partition and recombine three-digit numbers. Each digit can be represented as a group of dots to develop children's understanding of the significance of different digits. This interactive teaching program (ITP) is an ICT-based tool to support the exploration of place value. Bead sticks ITP (version 9) allows the child or teacher to represent numbers (with up to four-digits) and explore addition and subtraction. An animation demonstrates the process of grouping and exchange.

### Opportunities to use and apply

Possible contexts include:

• money and measures, e.g. How could you make £7.34 just using £1, 10p and 1p coins? Find some other ways.
• calculation, e.g. How could partitioning help you calculate 38 + 25?
• number patterns and sequences, e.g. 268, 278, 288... What is the rule? Give the next three numbers in the sequence.
• number problems and puzzles, e.g. If you add the digits of the number 201, they total 3. How many other three-digit numbers can you find with a digit total of 3? Write these in order, smallest first.
