We have been busy learning about rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10000 and even 100000 this term. We have been investigating using different resources to help our calculations. Numberlines are a useful way of establishing whether or not we round numbers up or down. I have included a link to a video that briefly explains some of the rounding methods we have been using in class. Challenge your child to have a go at rounding some numbers if you have a spare 5 minutes!
In literacy we have been writing persuasive texts. Children have been using persuasive features such as: alliteration, power of 3, hyperbole, rhetorical questions and imperative commands! They have been working on a piece of writing that is designed to persuade you to visit Rome... apologies in advance for any holiday requests!
