Place Value – What is it? What does it mean?

Hi all,

Next week we are going to start to look at place value during mathematics.

What is place value?

What do you already know? What do you understand?

What could you share with the rest of year 5?

Could you link the work covered on Roman Numerals?

Here are a few links to videos that might help. Perhaps you could add some better links that you find.


Good luck! Ask any questions as you go and as a team we will try to help!
