    You talk about the kinaesthetic approach to teaching multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. Have you ever tried using chairs for the place value columns? I place a row of about 6 chairs at the front of the room and blu-tak place value labels over the top of each one, i.e. H T U . t h Then choose perhaps four pupils to sit on them each holding a digit card, tell them to, say, multiply by 10, and everyone has to move over one chair!
    It’s much harder to explain than to do! I hope you get the idea.
