# Year 5: Thursday 21st May – Identifying the value of Decimals

Good Morning Year 5! Today you have abit of a sorting activity challenge!

For this you will require a great understanding of the place value chart and the different columns, particularly for decimals, ‘tenths’ ‘hundredths’ and ‘thousandths’

Look at the images below if you are not sure, remember the decimal point does not move!

Task: You are going to receive a list of decimals below. If you look at the table below, you need to sort the different decimals into the correct accurate groups.

Layout: To ensure you do not get confused or muddled, I would very neatly copy the below into your book. Write all the decimals into columns across your page and then draw the table in your book, you will need an entire page.

Work systematically. There is no point drawing the entire table and then trying to fit decimals in because you will run out of space. For example, draw the row for the first heading in the table ‘5 in the tenths place’ and find all the numbers that match that statement. Once you have completed the first row, move on the second, then the third etc. Work through the table in order!

Handy tip: When you have sorted a decimal into a group, I would underline the decimal in a different colour so it shows you have used it. That way you will not get confused and make sure you have done them all. You may have some which overlap into 2 columns and use twice!

Remember: You will not need to use all the decimals! This is because some of them will not fit the rule at all!

For example, the first one ‘0.28’ meets none of the statements below. There is no statement that says ‘2 in the tenths column’ or ‘8 in the hundredths column’ – therefore I can put a little ‘x’ next to it.

I look forward to seeing how you complete this task!

Organisation, presentation and layout is essential for this task! Use a ruler! Good luck!
