Written Division

Zoom call at 9:10 for the first 15 minutes (log in details will be the same for every session). Please attend if possible.

In this lesson we are going to be using our division knowledge along with our times tables knowledge.

When we are doing written division we use short division something that we call the Bus Stop Method – simply because it looks like a bus stop.


Eg: 81 ÷ 3 =


So we would set it out like this…



The number you are dividing goes inside the bus stop and the number you are dividing by waits outside the bus stop.

First you need to think about how many 3’s go into 8

If I write my 3 times tables down


1 x 3 = 3

2 x 3 = 6

3 x 3 = 9


I can see that 3 goes into 8 two times so I would put a 2 above the 8 and carry over the 2 that I haven’t used onto my 1. This now makes this 21. Now I need to think about how many 3’s go into 21. Again using my 3 times tables …


1 x 3 = 3

2 x 3 = 6

3 x 3 = 9

4 x 3 = 12

5 x 3 = 15

6 x 3 = 18

7 x 3 = 21


I can see that 3 goes into 21, seven times so that goes above the 1.


So 81 ÷ 3 = 27



Quiet Reading Time

Find a comfortable spot for your reading or you may want to find an unusual place for a change. Ask your adult to send me a picture of you reading in your spot or tell me where it is on Class Dojo.

Make sure you have your reading record signed by an adult at home to show that you have kept up your reading and send over a picture on Class Dojo, this will earn you more dojos.

Today it’s comprehension day, for the zoom part of the lesson we will be sharing a text and I have some questions for you to think about. The sheet that is attached below will be our shared text- if you can print it off, if you can’t I will share it on the screen so we can do some reading together too.


Once we have finished our call turn to Pages 2 and 3 in Book One of your comprehension book, read through and answer the questions. Take your time and find the answers in the text.

For this term’s art topic we are going to learn more about the Mayan’s. I would like you to start by carrying out some research into the celebration called ‘Day of the Dead’. This is a celebration that was created by the Mayans as they believed that death was simply another form of life. Take a look at the colours used in the celebrations in Mexico in the modern day, what images are used to represent the ‘Day of the Dead’. Once you have found some images online linked to the celebrations take some time to either print images off and create a collage in your blue book, create a collage on Powerpoint or draw some images in your books that represent the ‘Day of the Dead’ celebrations.


I look forward to seeing what you create using the images of the celebrations you find – please send your work over on Class Dojo.
