Decimal Numbers

We have starting looking at and learning about decimal numbers.

Decimals are based on 10

Example: the numbers we use in everyday life are decimal numbers, because they are based on 10 digits (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9).


"Decimal number" is often used to mean a number that uses a decimal point followed by digits that show a value smaller than one.

First, let's have an example:

decimal number 45.6
Here is the number "forty-five and six-tenths" written as a decimal number:

The decimal point goes between Ones and Tenths.

45.6 has 4 Tens, 5 Ones and 6 Tenths, like this:
decimal number 45.6 = 40 + 5 + 6/10

We watched this video to help us think about and understand decimal numbers.

Oderings School Garden Project

This year Oderings have decided to fund a trial programme that gets children involved in gardening. 
We are lucky enough to be one of the ten schools involved. 


Each month an Oderings staff member and Christchurch Horticultural Society member come out to our school and take a small lesson on their planned topic. They also supply us with plants and any materials needed. 

This months topic was pollination. We learnt about leafcutter bees and how they help with pollination. 
You can find out more about pollination in their latest Live & Grow magazine.
