Place Value

You need to work out these sums in your maths grid book. Remember that one number fits per box. Use a red pencil for your equals sign. The black sum is a challenge.

When you have finished the first lot of sums you can move onto the next lot. Everyone can start with the purple sums. These questions are a bit trickier so remember to look at each place value column and figure out what is missing.
