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.

Division with remainders - 27.03.2020

Thursday 26th March 2020

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:

Before starting today's activity you may want to have a look at these websites:

On this page I will be using resources from a teaching resource I have access to called Testbase.  The maths questions I will send are all past SATs questions.  I can filter the questions so that they are appropriate for Year 4 (the expected standard and above).  Where possible I will provide a link for resources that can support you in answering the questions.  You can either print the questions off (if you have paper and a printer) or you can write the answers in your purple book.  After several days, I will upload the answers so you can check if you got them correct.
