Counting in Powers of 10 Lesson

This Year 5 Counting in Powers of 10 lesson covers the prior learning of counting in 10s, 100s and 1,000s, before moving onto the main skill of counting in any power of 10.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
