Today, I would like you to have a go at some written division sums with remainders. Watch this short animation first: ‘Short division using written methods’. For more information about remainders have a look at Division and Remainders.

Today, the maths activity is 'Written Multiplication'. I haven't taught these two methods: the grid method and the ladder method but they are good methods and you may find them helpful. Both methods are different ways of present regrouping/partitioning when multiplying a single digit by a 3-digit number. Have a go!

Today you will be doing some learning on 'Fractions of Amounts'.
I've taught the children that if you have to find a unit fraction of an amount: 1/5 of 25, then you need to ask yourself how many 5s are in 25 = ?
If you need to find a fraction of an amount: 3/5 of 25, first ask yourself how many 5s in 25 = 5 and then multiply this by 3 - 5x3=15.
The work shows similar sums using a pizza and a bar model.

I hope you were able to do yesterday's activity. Today is multiplying by 10 and 100. We've done quite a bit of this in class so this shouldn't be too tricky. Here is a helpful website which you might want to look at before hand:
