Today’s learning is as follows – lets hope the sun comes out again!
Today we are looking at rounding numbers to the nearest 1 decimal place or 1dp.
To do this you need to look at the numbers after the decimal place – for example if the number is:
You look at the number 7 and decide whether you round the number after the decimal place up or down. If it is 5 or over you round it up and if it is less than 5 you round it down so the number stays the same
As the number you are looking at is more than 5 (7) you round the number after the decimal place up to 7 so your answer would be 4.7.
Even if there are more than 2 numbers after the decimal place you always look at the second digit along after the decimal place. For example if the number was:
You will need to look at the 6.53 to check if you round the number after the decimal place up or down. In this case you need to look at the number 3 – you will see that it is less than 5 so you are rounding down so the number 5 stays the same meaning your answer would be:
Now have a go at these – Round to the nearest 1dp
EXT: Roll a dice and create a random number remembering to add a decimal place. Round this number to 1dp
Today’s task is to practice your spellings in a creative way.
Some creative ways could be:
Making a picture out of the word/letters
These spellings can be found in your yellow books or if you need some different words to practice have a look here:
Can you remember how to count to 20 or more in French? Have a go!
Now it is time to learn our colours or practice these if we already know them –

How can you present what you have learnt? Could you teach some of your toys? Your siblings? Your parents? How can you make sure that you will remember them?
