Lesson 7 – Decimals – Thousandths as Decimals

LO: To be able to represent decimals in different ways.

SC1. I can represent decimals using place value counters.

SC2. I can translate decimals written as words into digits.

SC3. I can find convert a mixed number fraction into a decimal.

SC4. I can find a decimal on a number line.

Over the last few days, we have begun to consider what the value of a thousandth is. We have used Dienes and Place Value counters to represent numbers which include decimals up to 3-decimal places (thousandths).

Today, we are going to look at different ways in which a decimal number may be represented and how we then convert that representation into a decimal number which is written using digits.

We will be focussing on:

-place value counters

-decimals written as words

-mixed number fractions

-number lines

The purpose of today’s lesson is to ensure that you have a firm understanding decimals and the links between tenths, hundredths and thousandths.

I have put together a video and PowerPoint for today’s lesson.



You will find questions and their answers at the end of the class page. The set of questions labeled "something a bit different" will give you an opportunity to really stretch your understanding of representing a decimal number using different strategies.


I have also attached challenge questions to a PowerPoint.

Break time/snack time

10:30- 12:00

English – ‘The House with the Chicken Legs’ 

L.O. I can define and explain what a proverb is.  

Success Criteria:  

  1. I can confidently use ideas, key words and phrases from the text.  

  1. I can interpret what a proverb means.  

  1. I can create my own proverb. 


Baba Yaga often quotes proverbs when she talks to Marinka. (Proverbs are short sayings that contain traditional wisdom or advice.) 

Here are a few of Baba’s proverbs- what do each of them mean to you? 


  • It’s not how long a life, but how sweet a life that counts. 

  • Beware the goat from the front, the horse from the rear and the living from all sides. 

  • The morning is wiser than the evening. 

  • The nightingale that sings finds a song. 


Key Question: What other proverbs have you heard, and what do they mean to you?  


Share, discuss, make notes and research further! 



Spend a bit of time researching proverbs and make a bullet pointed list of the ones that you like, with their meanings. 

Here are some to get you started: 


  • The only way to be a friend is to have one. 

  • Actions speak louder than words. 

  • A bad workman blames his tools. 


Challenge: Can you make a proverb of your own? 

If you have time, you can try and make up some of your own. A tip to help you with this would be to think of an important message first and think of a clever way you could say this.
