100 square challenge

This week, Year 3 have worked together to reinforce their understanding of the sequences contained within the hundred square.  Can you complete the challenge? https://nrich.maths.org/5572

After this, they moved onto what initially appeared to be an easy task.  The task encouraged children to think about the construction of the familiar hundred square and about the first hundred numbers in our counting system. However, the children needed to use their resilience and perseverance skills as they soon discovered that it was not quite as easy as it first appeared!  After the lesson, children discussed how they discovered the clues needed to put the whole together and what they’d learned about the construction of a hundred square.  Are you ready to test your skills? https://nrich.maths.org/6554
