Ordering Numbers

Today in Maths we had to order some numbers that we made yesterday.

1. To order numbers the first thing you have to do is you have to check what the highest place value is, for example the highest place value for the number 2,345 is thousands, but the number 657 has a highest place value of hundreds.

2. Next you have to look at the highest place value first. So if you have thousands, you have to check how many thousands.

4,801 and 2,016

When comparing these two numbers, one has a 4 in the thousands and the other has a 2, so 4,801 must be bigger.

3. If the numbers in the thousands are the same, you have to look at the hundreds.

5,309 and 5,729

Both numbers had a 5 in the thousands, but one has 3 hundreds and the other has 7 hundreds. So that means that 5,729 is bigger.

4. If both the thousands and the hundreds are the same, we look at the tens.

8,732 and 8,710

Both numbers had a 8 in the thousands and a 7 in the hundreds, but one has 1 ten and the other has 3 tens. So 8,732 is the bigger number.

5. If the thousands, hundreds and tens are the same, we check the ones.

6,234 and 6,239

Both numbers have 6 thousands, 2 hundreds, and 3 tens, but one has 9 ones and the other number has 4 ones. So 6,239 is the bigger number.

Here’s a video of the number line we made with our numbers!

Back into it!

There were lots of interested projects happening in Inquiry today. There were Minecraft swords being made, castles being built, lots of craft taking place in the collage area and even a model car being made. Here are some pictures of what was happening so you can see what was going on!



Library Tomorrow!

Don’t forget that our specialist timetable has changed this term and we will be having library first up tomorrow, Tuesday 6th. It’d be great to see all students with a library bag (a plastic bag or a supermarket bag are great options if you don’t want to buy one) so they can all be taking home books to enjoy reading at home. Also, don’t forget to check your house for any library books that were borrowed before the holidays and bring them back ready for library tomorrow.


Holiday Photos

Tomorrow we will be starting to make our holiday movies so it would be great if all students could please make sure they have some photos of their holidays at school tomorrow.




Just a reminder that for term 4, all students are required to have a hat to be able to play outside. No hat, no play! So please make sure you are sending your child to school this week with a hat that is CLEARLY NAMED so that they are ready for the term and if it is clearly named, the hat should hopefully not get lost.
