This week in maths we have been looking at formal calculation methods. We looked at long division right at the end of Year Five and this week we have been practising to try and improve our speed and accuracy.
I noticed that some children are comfortable with the process of long division but are struggling to find the multiples for large divisors. We discussed finding the tenth and fifth multiple and then filling in the gaps. Children may also find the video link below useful which focuses on doubling to find multiples.
If you want to do some extra practise at home, you could have a go at the following calculations (remember to really take your time finding the multiples):
- 2,345 ÷ 32=
- 6,493 ÷ 46=
- 7,323 ÷ 64=
- 5,883 ÷ 53=
- 8,973 ÷ 72=
