Year 6 maths worksheet: Reading decimal fractions (2)


This is a follow up page from one published earlier, reinforcing reading decimal fractions.

It is important that children reading decimals correctly. With a decimal such as 0.345 probably the best way to read it is: ‘nought point three, four, five and not nought point three hundred and forty five.

This is also good revision of place value and the use of thousandths. Probably children will come across thousandths only in terms of measurement such as litres and ml, or kilometres and metres.
