Classroom activities, games and displays to re-energise your number and place value lessons during the first few weeks of term

We all know that number and place value underpins every aspect of primary maths, which is why it is so important to help all of your students understand these key concepts as quickly as possible. Sometimes, that's easier said than done. 

As a topic that is taught year in, year out, keeping lessons fresh and engaging can be a challenge. That's why we've looked through the very best resources to make sure you have all the tools you need to tackle this fundmental topic.

Place value of decimal fractions

This PowerPoint gives examples of the place value of the value in decimal fractions (hundreds, tens, units, tenths, hundredths and thousandths). I created this resource to help my year 6 class understand the value of different digits. The PowerPoint has 2 activities: 1) Write down the place value of an underlined number in a decimal fraction. 2) Increase the value of different decimal fractions. Both activities are covered on the final 2 PowerPoint slides, so these could be printed off and handed out to chn. If you find this a valuable resource, please rate and/or leave a comment.

DECIMAL NUMBERS FOUR IN A ROW:

• Two sets of 54 decimal number cards featuring numbers from 0.001 to 2.01 (1 set includes numbers up to 2 decimal places, the other up to 3 decimal places)

• Two A3 Four in a Row boards. The 1 star version was originally designed to go with the cards to 2 decimal places, while the more challenging 2 star version was designed for the cards to 3 decimal places. However, both sets of cards would work with either board. It works especially well in A3, however, you could scale down the board to A4 and use the smaller card set supplied.

You could have pairs take on other pairs. Each team of two starts with a set of cards (print each set on different coloured card if you don’t have coloured printing that would allow you to print the different coloured cards supplied, then laminate to use again and again). It works well if each team shuffles their cards, puts them in a pile and takes one from the top at a time, which they then put down on the board if there’s a suitable empty box. They aim to get four of their cards in a row. Each box has a stipulation about the numbers that can be placed on it (no tenths, < 1.5, > 0.31, < 0.56, five hundredths etc). To save printing you could split a set between 2 or 3 boards as a single team won’t require all 54 cards.

The cards can also be used separately from the game boards for ordering activities.
