Year 5 maths worksheet: Rounding to the nearest thousand (2)

This is a follow up page to our earlier worksheet on rounding for year 5 children.When rounding to the nearest thousand the key digit is the hundreds digit. If it is 5 or more round up to the next whole thousand. If it is less than 5 then take away the hundreds tens and units and leave the number ’rounded down’.

With practice children should be able to round numbers quickly and also begin to see what is a sensible rounding. Should it be to the nearest hundred, thousand or ten thousand?
