It's our first sentence stacking lesson on our new sequence! This sequence is based on short, animated film. In order to choose effective vocabulary and generate ideas over the next few days, it's important that you watch Part 1 of the film below. The boy in the film is called Ben. Once you've watched it, you can begin Chunk 1 of today's Plot Point: Engrossed in War. Enjoy!

This week, our focus is on decimals. In class, we have worked with mainly numbers with up to 2 decimal places (tenths and hundredths, e.g. 6.45), although we have looked at thousandths briefly.


Today is about recapping the place value of numbers that have up to 3 decimal places (d.p.), as well as recognising decimal and fraction equivalents. 


First of all, let's recap what decimals are:

It's time for you to apply your knowledge to a range of questions. Open the document below for all activities. Remember, please only spend an hour maximum for Maths, that's including the time spent watching videos. If you do not finish, but have been working hard, then that is okay. Some of you in class would not reach the problem solving activities usually because you need more time on mastering the fluency of the skill.
