Powers of 10

As we develop our numbe sense in Year 5, one of the key objectives is to be able to count forwards or backwards in steps of powers of 10 from any given number up to 1,000,000. To work towards this learning objective, we played a fun game called 'Nearest to 50,000'. With dice, the children generated a 5 digit number and worked to get as close to 50,000 as they could by rolling the dice and deciding the value of the number they rolled each time. They added and subtracted different steps of powers of 10 and some even managed to get exactly 50,000!
