Year 4 Decimals worksheets
When starting to think about decimals, it is useful to imagine a square divided into 100 equally sized squares. Look at the following diagrams. Can you write the decimal they are representing underneath each one?
These number lines are going up in tenths. Can you add in all the missing decimals on these number lines?
When ordering decimals it can really help to imagine them as pounds and pence. Look at these sets of decimals. Can you order them from smallest to largest?
We can write the same number as a fraction or as a decimal. Look at all the fractions in the left-hand column and write their decimal equivalents, then do the same for the fractions in the right-hand column.

The numbers after the decimal point in a decimal are called the tenths (because each one is 1/10 of a whole). The numbers after that are called the hundredths (because each one is 1/100 of a whole). Cut out these decimals and put them in order, from smallest to largest.
Use a blank hundred square to explain decimals to KS2 children, as well as showing the equivalence between fractions, decimals and percentages.
Numbers to the right of the decimal point are tenths of a whole. Numbers to the right of the tenths are hundredths of a whole. Can you shade these decimals on the squares below? Remember: each square represents one whole unit, made up of 100 hundredths.
