Hello and welcome to Y5. Each week there will be maths support on the school blog to help the children prepare for the following weeks maths objectives. Next week, we will be covering place value and counting on in 100′s, 1000′s, 10,000′s and 100,000′s. To help us do this, we need to look at our place value chart.

Use place value headings to work out the value of each digit in a number.

A number is made of one or more digits. The number 683, for example, is made of the digits 6, 8 and 3. The position of a digit in a number is very important. A digit’s value depends on its **position** in the number.

So the number 351489.3 is three hundred and fifty-one thousand, four hundred and eighty nine, and three tenths.

Try these links below and tackle some of the games based around place value.
