Year 5/6 Maths

LO: To be able to round decimal numbers

Rounding numbers is used in estimating, when we want to quickly work out an approximate answer to a calculation.  For example, if 4 of you were going to get pizzas and the pizzas were £9.99 each, you could 'round' the £9.99 up to the nearest whole pound, which would be £10.00.    Then 4 lots of £10 is £40, so the price of the pizzas is approximately £40.00.


Watch the videos for an explanation about rounding and a song about how we round decimals.

Rounding Decimals - A video about how to round decimals

Here is a decimals knowledge organiser that some of you might find useful

Now, see if you can apply what you have learned to some questions.  Watch the video and then see how many of the questions you can answer; don't forget that they usually get trickier as you work through the sheet!

Mark your work.

Year 6 Maths

LO: To understand substitution - this is basically when you substitute a number for a symbol, like I showed you with the heart and enlightened yesterday.


Watch the video and have a go at answering the questions on the sheet before you mark your work.

I've attached a 'knowledge organiser' for you as well, which some of you will like.  wink

If the video and sheet boggle your minds, I've posted something a bit less taxing, too.

I'd like you to carry on with your models of your ideal bedrooms today.  Maybe you could include:

  • Slide from a bunk bed
  • A hot tub
  • Ball pool
  • Tunnel or secret passage to another location
  • Furniture that flips over to become something else
  • Balcony or roof terrace
  • Ensuite bathroom
  • Mini fridge


Or maybe you re-create your model using Minecraft or similar software?

Maybe you re-create a fictional bedroom, following Joseph R's example of his Ravenclaw themed room?

Maybe you extend the project into a whole dream house?
