# Place Value (Year 6)

By the time you're in Year Six in KS2 Maths, you'll be a pro at place values! Imagine numbers are like teams, and each digit has a special role. They change their power depending on where they stand in the number lineup. Even after the dot (decimal point), we have tiny teams - tenths, hundredths, and thousandths! We've got placeholders too, like zeros at the end, helping us know if a number is big or super big, like 10, 100, or 1,000!

Let's play a fun quiz to see how much you know about these number adventures! Perfect for cool kids aged 10-11.
