Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will practise writing numbers using words.


To write a number in words, we need to think carefully about the place value of all the digits. 


Let's think about the number 687

The number has a 6 in the hundreds place, an 8 in the tens place and a 7 in the ones place. 

We can write this number in words as six hundred and eighty-seven.


Remember to take care when writing numbers in words when there are zeros in the number.

So, the number 802 has a zero in the tens place. 

This means we write the number as eight hundred and two because there are no tens. 


Let's try an example question together. 



Write this number in words:




We can use our knowledge of place value to write the number in words.

Hundreds, Tens, Ones

400 + 0 + 6 =

Four hundred and six
