Maths worksheets: Read and write numbers up to thousands. Y4

Reading four digit numbers can be tricky. Understanding of place value is vital – realising that each digit becomes ten times bigger when it moves one place to the left. We will return to this many times and in more detail. To begin, this worksheet shows the column names to help with reading the numbers.

At one time it was not popular to show these when writing numbers down but it can really help to label them Th H T and U above the digits.

The second worksheet concentrates on spelling those tricky numbers in the teens – why does the u disappear in forty but not fourteen?
