# Explore the numbers 6 to 10 using the parts and wholes on a number line

I can identify the whole and parts of the numbers 6 to 10 using a part-part-whole model and number line.

## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- Numbers 6 to 9 can be represented as two parts, one part of 5 and a smaller part.
- Part-part-whole relationships can be represented as a bar model or on a number line.
- A variety of representations, including a number line, can be used to explore the five and a bit structure.

### Common misconception

Pupils may not connect more abstract representations of part-part-whole relationships with practical examples showing the five and a bit structure.

Take time to connect the representations pupils are familiar with e.g. show finger numeral representation alongside part-part-whole models and bar models to help pupils understand these all show the same relationship.
