Good Morning Year 4SB! 

 

Happy Monday :-)

 

Hope you had lovely weekends.

It's been lovely to have messages from so many of you... look out for replies this morning.

 

Have a great day.

Wake Up, Shake up!

Use this link to help you with rounding decimals today

Now, complete the worksheet in your books, you may need to draw the number lines.

Remember, 1 2 3 4  we round down and 5 6 7 8 9 we round up.

This would be the same in decimal numbers. So, we look at the tenths number …

7.2 would round down to 7

12.8 would round up to 13
