As well as learning our 8 times table we have been rounding numbers to the nearest 10. This was easy until we started using numbers in the hundreds and thousands…but we’re getting good at it. Have a look at the photos below to see how we have been learning and how good we are.
We played “Gladiators”. Miss Manson wrote numbers on the board and then once we were in our two teams, boys against girls, she shouted out a number and the contestants at the front of the line had to rub out the number that you would round the shouted number too. The girls won 12 points to 10!
Then we got out our whiteboards and drew on an empty numberline. Miss Manson then gave us a number that we had to mark on the numberline and then we had to mark on the two tens numbers that the number was inbetween. This helps us to see what the nearest 10 is. We then held up our whiteboards to show our answers.
