Maths Support Summer Week 1

Next term, we are focusing on place value, ordering and comparing numbers up to 1,000,000.

We use place value headings like 10, 100, 1000. These help us do sums and see which numbers are bigger than others. 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. Use place value headings to work out the value of each digit in a number.

Example of using place value headings

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