Round these decimals to the nearest whole number



How to round to the nearest whole number


If the tenth digit of the number is greater than or equal to 5 we round up and add 1 to ones of number.


If the tenth digit of the number is less than 5 we remove the decimal part.






The tenths digit is 6
6 is greater than 5, so we add 1.
Result = 125

This week we are going to be learning all about perimeter and area.

We will be finding the area and perimeter of 2D shapes throughout the week.


You don't need to draw out any of these shapes - just write the answers 



















Look at this below on how to work out perimeter of a shape.




Perimeter is the distance around the edge of a shape. 



Look at this shape.


The width is 7cm

The height is 3cm


7cm + 7cm = 14cm

3cm + 3cm = 6cm


14cm + 6cm= 20cm


Perimeter =









Let's look at this one.


Work out the top first.

6cm + 6cm = 12cm


Work out the sides

5cm + 5cm = 10cm


Add them together

12cm + 10cm = 22cm


Perimeter = 22cm





Have a go at solving these questions.

Don't worry about drawing out the shape. Just write the answer into your book.

(Be careful with your units - cm or km)


Have a go at this question into your red book.

Don't worry about drawing out the shape. 


SymmetricalA 2D shape is symmetrical if a line can be drawn through it so that either side of the line looks exactly the same.

Over the next few weeks, we are going to use this animation of a Viking's journey as inspiration for our writing. 


Watch the video and then answer the questions below: 


Jotun - Journey of a Viking

The video follows a young Viking as he journeys in search of a mysterious object. On the way, he finds a sword carved with runes. When he picks up the sword, he has a vision of a Viking hoard attacking a Jotun (pronounced yo-tun). In Norse mythology, the Jotun are a race of giants that the Viking gods often fought with. The young Viking enters a cave and finds a piece of the Jotun's hammer incased in ice. He frees the object and returns it to his village, setting it on an alter for all to see. 


Using your inference skills and the video to help, answer these questions in as much detail as possible. 


1. What might have happened to the wrecked ships?

2. Who could have owned the rune-carved sword?

3. How could the sword have been special?

4. Why do you think the piece of the Jotun hammer was displayed on an alter?
