Discussion points for teachers

  1. Help Reena work out what Buzz’s number could be. Discuss each of the clues in turn and whether the clues can lead to the identification of a specific number or a range of possibilities. What could those possibilities be?

  5. How could this number be represented? Discuss how the number agreed from the last question could be represented in different ways, for example, counters on a place value chart. This question is open ended for the children to explore.
