Next week’s page look at how to round to the nearest 10 000, probably best suited to Year 6 children with a good understanding of larger numbers. In this case the two crucial digits to look at are the ten thousand and the thousands digits.
It’s always a good idea to think about how we work out answers in our heads and our page on doubling multiples of 5 is a good example of this.
Try to get children to explain how they do these doubling and halving questions.
This page can be found in the year 4 worksheets section.
By year 4 it is expected that children have a pretty good knowledge of their tables, but, of course, they also need to know when multiplication is the correct option. This depends on having a good understanding of the vocabulary involved. Next week we have a worksheet which uses a variety of different terms to multiply, including ‘lots of’ and ‘times’.
