Place Value in Years 5/6
By the end of KS2, learners are expected to know the place value up to Millions; and decimals from tenths to thousandths with fraction and percentage equivalents (FDP).
This set contains 400 double sided counters with whole numbers from Ones to Millions; and decimal numbers (0.1 0.01 0.001) with fractions (1/10 1/100 1/1000) and percentages (10% 1% 0.1%) on the back.
You may like to use these place value disks with our plavalmat® place value chart made from durable, natural rubber with Millions to thousandths.
These counters can also be used as essential secondary maths resources, especially in Year 7 with pupils who have not mastered the primary curriculum by the end of Year 6 which is needed in order to make the required progress with the KS3 maths curriculum. You may find our section on our main website about Ready to Progress helpful. You may like to read our blog article ‘WHY MATHS COUNTERS STILL HAVE VALUE IN PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL’ which explains how place value disks are beneficial for use with low attaining pupils and students across the ability range to deliver the KS3 maths curriculum.

The long-lasting, embossed design allows the counters to be re-used and washed repeatedly without the worry of the print fading or wearing off.
