Counting in REALLY big numbers

Both Alfie and Tyla contributed greatly to our maths lesson today. We found a big pile of straws, left over from a party in the classroom (we think it might have been Goldilocks from The Jolly Postman). Tyla thought the easiest way to count them would be to group them into 10's, which we did. Then when we had 9 left over, it was Alfie's idea to count the remainder in 1's. Well done both of you! 

Here are the rest of the class hard at work counting out these straws.
