We have been enjoying practising our Place Value skills in Year 4 by playing a game!
What is the game called?
The game is called ‘Race to 1000!’
What is the aim of the game?
The aim of the game is to get as close to 1000 as possible (without going over!) in 6 turns. You have to use strategy and decide which column to use your coins in.
What maths is used?
Some of the maths skills used are counting, exchanging and place value.
How could you make the game trickier?
You could try to play without using 100s, or try to get to 1000 in only 4 or 5 turns instead of 6.
