Children begin to connect hundredths to tenths and place value and decimal measure. They extend the use of the number line to connect fractions, numbers and measures. By understanding the relationship between non-unit fractions and multiplication and division of quantities, they make connections between fractions of a length, of a shape and as a representation of one whole or set of quantities. Children understand factors and multiples to and become fluent through a variety of increasingly complex problems beyond one whole.

Practise counting using simple fractions and decimals, both forwards and backwards. Children learn decimal notation and the terminology associated with it, including in the context of measure. They make comparisons and order decimal amounts and quantities that are expressed to the same number of decimal places. They should be able to represent numbers with one or two decimal places in several ways, such as on number lines.
