Learning about Place Value in the HQ

We have been looking at representing numbers with base 10 blocks which help us to understand place value and how numbers can be made and broken.  Mrs C taught us a new game called 'READY, STEADY, SKILLS' and we really enjoyed playing boys vs girls.  This is how you play the game:

Mrs C chooses two students to 'verse' each other.
They have to turn their back to the whiteboard until Mrs C says 'READY, STEADY, SKILLS' 
Mrs C writes a number in the range 0-100 on the whiteboard then she says 'READY, STEADY, SKILLS'
The two students turn and using the base 1-0 blocks make the number as quickly as they can.  The first one finished gets the points.  

Here are a few photos of the kids enjoying this new game:

Now it's Matthias and Keira's turn!
