Week 4 (w/c 25.1.21)

Welcome to Week 4 of home learning.

There have been a few updates to the home learning page 


Maths - Division (2-digits by 1-digit)


To support your child: draw a place value table on a large piece of paper and find something to use as tens and ones dienes (pasta and rice! Beads and coins! Paperclips and marbles!) Write the calculation at the top and have your child physically partition the number and share into tens and ones so they can visualise the division process. 

For extra practice: give these four calculations a go using a partition method

88 ÷ 4

46 ÷ 2

63 ÷ 3

86 ÷ 2


Maths: To support your child, work on paper again with tens and ones dienes (i.e., pasta, paperclips etc). They can physically partition the number. They might find it difficult to partition it in different ways, but it takes practice using this physical representation. 



For today's maths, I will be doing a review of the division strategy from yesterday. This is so everyone can feel confident using the partition method for division. I would recommend you wait until after the lesson to complete the worksheet if your child is struggling with this division method. 



Preparation for today's maths: For today's lesson we will being using some 100 squares to help us. Please make sure you have at least four 100 squares printed out or prepared by drawing them out onto paper. You will need to cut around them before the lesson. Don't worry if you can't do this,  I will be demonstrating on Zoom.

Science - Naming Bones in the Body


Watch the Oak Academy lesson on all the important bones in the body.

Have a go at this Build a Skeleton Game.


You could then try to make your own moving skeleton using safety pins.


Read Mrs Templeton's  brilliant poem to remind us about the importance of bones.

Miss Geear also likes the poem about a bone thief!


You could copy out one of the poems to practice your handwriting?



Today we will be looking at the concept of remainders. 

There is a practical activity sheet which is optional.

You do not need to follow it exactly, but it gives you an idea of how to secure the idea of remainders in division in a practical way. Please feel free to adapt.
