# P6 Numeracy 25th February

## Decimals - hundredths Lesson 1

Today we begin our work on hundredths and learn how to write these fractions as decimal fractions.

Warm-up activity

This week's focus is on our multiplication and division facts so it's time for Day 4 of our Numeracy Ninja challenges!  Every day this week we are going to complete a Numeracy Ninja challenge where all the tables have been mixed up and it is your job to work out the missing number in each calculation.

There are 60 questions to complete each day.

Don't forget to time yourself to see if you can beat yesterday's time!  If you haven't finished after 15 minutes, stop and spend another 5 minutes revising your tables please.

If you choose the higher level challenge, you are looking at all the tables from 2 X to 12 X plus their division facts.

Today's lower level challenge focuses on the 5 X table.  Download the Multiplication Tables Factsheet and spend a couple of minutes practising counting forwards and backwards in 5s and looking at the related division facts.  Then download the 5 X table challenge and try to complete it without any help.  Lots of questions are repeated throughout the worksheet to help to reinforce your learning.

Main activity

Over the last few weeks, we have been learning about decimal fractions and thinking about tenths.

Today we are going to start learning about hundredths which means we will be taking one whole and dividing it into one hundred parts.

Look at these examples

In this picture, 26 out of the 100 small squares have been coloured.

We could write this in words as 26 hundredths or we could write it as a fraction or as a decimal fraction

In this picture, 45 out of the 100 small squares have been coloured.

We could write this in words as 45 hundredths or we could write it as a fraction or as a decimal fraction

Watch today's video where Mrs Bell will introduce you to hundredths and then have a go at the activities below.  You'll need to use your colouring pencils for some sections.

Reasoning activity

In today's task we are thinking about shapes and lines.  In the first two questions, can you find the odd one out and explain your thinking?  There is more than one possible answer!

In the third question, look carefully at the lines and decide if you agree or disagree with the statements.  Share your reasons with an adult.

Time for some fun!

Why don't you finish today's Numeracy activities with a game of "Hit the Button"?
