Monday 8th February


Today's focus is multiplication and division word problems - with a wintery theme. These are based around situations that you might come across in real life.



Monday 1st - Wednesday 3rd February


This week, we are going to be practising division using sharing and grouping, to make sure that we have really understood how it works.


There is a helpful video below that explains both methods, and then a variety of activities for you to try over the three days this week.


Some of them are word problems, so you might need a grown up to help you read the questions.


As before, please login to TT Rockstars for 10 minutes on each of the 3 days to keep practising.


Have fun!

Grouping & Sharing Lesson

Monday 25th - Wednesday 27th January


This week, we are learning how to divide equally. Your knowledge of times-tables will be really, really helpful here because dividing is the inverse (opposite) of multiplying. 


For example: 6 x 2 = 12

                     2 x 6 = 12

                    12 ÷ 2 = 6

                    12 ÷ 6 = 2


If you know your times-tables, you know your division facts as well!


The videos below are really helpful in explaining how to work out division calculations. Ignore the last bit when they ask you to complete the worksheet - just have a try at any of the activities posted further down. I'll be adding more soon.

This lesson reminds you how to divide by sharing.

Aut3.10.2 - Make equal groups - grouping

New challenges!


If you're feeling confident, or would like to try things in a different way, please have a look at some of these. 


It is not the expectation that you will complete all of these (unless you would like to!).
