Week 6 - Week Beginning 8th February
Week 6 – Division
We hope you all had a lovely weekend! This week we are looking at division in Maths. We had started looking at this in school before Christmas, so this week we wanted to take some time to practise and reinforce our skills.
Division is the last of the four operations (+, -, x and ÷). Division can sometimes be called sharing equally. It is the inverse, or opposite, of multiplication. We can use our multiplication facts to work out division facts. For example, if I know that 2 x 4 = 8 the I know that 8 ÷ 4 = 2.
This week we will be focusing on developing our recall skills with our learnt division facts. We will also be revising our dividing by 4 facts to have another opportunity to learn these.
Take time this week to check your accuracy. We have included a list of all division facts to encourage checking and to promote accuracy. Pupils can also use these for their work if they need a little bit of help remembering the numbers. If you are finding a particular activity has too many questions, simply do as much as you can. We are looking for accuracy not speed!
On Friday we want you to try a different challenge from the Maths Challenge grid. Remember to send examples of your work to your teacher by asking an adult to send them on Seesaw or by email. This is really important so please keep up the great effort with this. As always, if you have any queries, please just contact your teacher. Have a great week!
