Place Value, which is the place or position a digit is put in within a number, reveals how much it is worth. Without learning about place value in maths lessons, children wouldn't be able to understand well how to write numbers, identify one more or one less or even count forwards and backwards.
Our focus text will be - Ug Boy Genius of the Stone Age by Raymond Briggs
In this multi layered graphic text, the concept of a ‘Stone Age’ is taken to extremes with everything, including trousers made of stone. The story follows the quest of a Stone Age boy, Ug in his search for softer trousers. With ideas beyond his time, his questioning and inventive mind proves exasperating at times for his parents. This book provides many opportunities for discussion and lots of humour at different levels, from the illustrations to the footnotes.
