Practical Maths

This week in Maths, Year 4 have been learning how to use the column method for addition and subtraction with 4 digit numbers! We used the Dienes equipment to help us understand the place value of each digit and enable us to understand why and how we could 'carry' numbers over to the next column if we needed to.

We now understand the importance of knowing our place value for each digit! We will be looking at word problems tomorrow and applying the skills we have learnt!
