Morning Challenge

WALT: Round 2-digit numbers to nearest multiple of 10.

Is 32 nearer to 30 or 40?
To round 32 to the nearest 10 we round it to 30 because that’s the closest multiple of 10.

If we were adding the prices of lots of toys, and just needed to know roughly how much the whole lot would be, we could round each price to the nearest £10 and then add them. 

Is 45 nearer to 40 or 50?
Yes, it’s in the middle  but we round 45 up to 50. If you were rounding amounts of money, it would be safer to round 45p up to 50p to make sure you had enough money! So, we always round up any number that sits half-way between the target multiples.

The Fox and the Grapes

one hot summers day a fox was strolling through an orchard he spotted a bunch of ripe grapes hanging from a vine which had been trained over a lofty branch just the thing to quench my thirst he said drawing back a few paces he took a run and a jump and just missed the bunch he tried again taking a longer run-up this time and reaching for the grapes with both his mouth and his paws but again he failed again and again he leapt up towards the tempting bunch but at last had to give up the fox then walked away with his nose in the air saying I bet those grapes are really sour anyway
