As children progress through KS2 they will learn more about the place values of digits in Maths. As well as understanding the different values of digits depending on their position (ones, tens and hundreds), in Year Four children will be exposed to larger numbers including thousands. They will also be expected to know the equivalent values of these positions, for example that ten tens are the same as one hundred or that twenty hundreds are the same as two thousands. Finally, they should also be able to write these numbers in the form of words.
Place values are split into thousands, hundreds, tens, ones, tenths and hundredths. In our number system we know the value of a digit in a number by its position in that number - one digit represents ones, two represent tens and ones etc.
Have a go at the following quiz to see how much you know about place value. This quiz is intended for children aged 8-9.
