  • Term: Autumn
  • Topic: Number and place value
  • Duration: 1.5 weeks
  • Keystage: KS2
  • Age Range: 9 to 10 yrs
  • Unit can be taught out of sequence: N
  • Week Range: 1 - 2a

In this chapter, pupils extend their understanding of the number system to include larger integers. The skills and concepts build on those from all previous number and place value chapters.

Pupils learn to read and write numbers to at least 1 million. They determine the place value of each digit, using this to order and compare numbers. They count forwards or backwards in steps of powers of 10 and round to the nearest 10, 100, 1,000, 10,000 and 100,000.

Mathematics Mastery

At least a million

Enabling pupils to develop their mathematical reasoning skills through independent work is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

This activity explores the concept of at least a million.

• Pupils should complete these tasks using concrete manipulatives as part of the CPA approach
• Pupils should be encouraged to explain their working in full sentences
• These tasks may be adapted with pupils working in pairs to encourage mathematical discussion

At least a million

Deepening pupils’ understanding of key mathematical ideas is a core element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

Our Key Constructs highlight the essential mathematical concepts all pupils are expected to grasp within each year group, with accompanying guidance for assessing pupil progress.

Our Key Constructs are closely aligned to the National Curriculum’s objectives. We know these can be tricky to evidence, so we’ve included an example task for each concept, as well as ideas to support slower-graspers and depth tasks to challenge higher-attaining pupils.

• Pupils should work through the tasks independently
• Teachers should incorporate the CPA approach to support pupils’ learning
• Opportunities for depth and scaffolding are built into each task
