Lesson 6 – Decimals – Understanding Thousandths

LO: To be able to represent thousandths on a place value grid.

SC1. I can consider the relationship between decimal numbers.

SC2. I recognise that thousandths go out to 3-decimal places.

SC3. I can identify a number by using place value knowledge

SC4. I can solve place value problems which include thousandths.

Yesterday, we began to consider the value of thousandths. We used Dienes to represent whole numbers, tenths, hundredths and thousandths and we were able to use the Dienes to create numbers up to 3-decimal places.

Today, we are going to consider how to recognise and write thousandths using place value counters. We will be creating place value grids in our books and drawing our counters.

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. I have also attached challenge questions to a PowerPoint.

As an extra challenge you can create your own decimal place value problems for a partner to solve. To represent the place value counters you could use coins or other items such as Lego bricks. Challenge them and then get them to challenge you and see how well you do.


Here are a few fun decimal maths games:

Challenge 9

LO: To create a game

SC1. I can explain my strategy for making my chosen game.

SC2. I can use my resources to make my chosen game.

SC3. I can consider how I will explain the rules of my game.

SC4. I can reflect upon the success of what I have created.

Create your game:

Today, I want you to create your game using the items from around your home. You probably won’t find exactly the same things that were originally used when the game was first played so you will need to improvise.

For my game I chose the Egyptian game of "Senet".

Attached below  have included some photos of how I recreated the game using what I had around the house.

Once completed, I would like you to reflect on how well you did when creating you game. You wil need to consider if you can make improvements and are what would you have done differently if you did this again.
