Lesson 8 – Decimals – Rounding Decimals

LO: To be able to round decimals.

SC1. I can consider strategies for rounding numbers.

SC2. I can use place value when rounding.

SC3. I can round to the nearest whole and tenth.

Over the last few days, we have started to look at how to read and write decimals and how to recognise the value of a digit in a decimal number. Today, we will be using this knowledge to help round decimals to the nearest whole number and to the nearest tenth.

I have two videos for you to watch and a PowerPoint for today’s lesson.


The first video is for rounding a decimal to the nearest whole number.



The second video is for rounding to the nearest tenth.




There are two worksheets at the bottom of the class page with questions and answers. One sheet has questions on rounding to the nearest whole and the other is rounding to the nearest tenth. I have also added a rounding decimals mastery worksheet with the answers on a separate sheet.

Challenge Questions

There are challenge questions and their answers at the end of the PowerPoint.

Challenge 10

SC1. I can consider what skills I need to be able to create a speech.

SC2. I can consider which topics interest me and explain why.

SC3. I can begin to think about how my speech will link to “Rights Respecting”.


Mrs Mitchel and Miss Fermor have set you the challenge of creating a speech about your ideal world. Your speech will be linked to what has happened to our world over the last few months. You will need to think about how in such difficult times there have been some glimmers of hope as pollution has fallen, animals are thriving and people are being kinder and more thoughtful towards each other.

Watch the video for Challenge 10.
