### Key learning points

- Two-digit numbers can be partitioned into tens and ones.

### Common misconception

Children may reverse the digits in a two-digit number, not understanding the value of each digit, or partition, for example, 54 into 5 and 4

Return to the use of practical equipment and ask children to prove they are right using it. They could also explain their ideas to a friend to encourage them to spot their own errors.
