12/10/17 - Year 6 Long Division Update!

Date: 12th Oct 2017 @ 12:20pm

I am one very happy Year 6 teacher! We have lots of Year 6 children who are working extremely hard to crack long division. This morning, we broke it down to use this new method when dividing by one digit numbers for some and the rest did more challenging long divisions.

I am so proud of Mia who has been working tirelessly at home to master this method! I have attached some of the extra work she has completed and she is now confidently using long and short division. Her next step is to apply this skill when solving problems.

It is important for the children to continue their learning at home even if it is not explicitly given as homework. It is really noticeable which children do revisit their learning at home when it comes to working in lessons as they are much more confident and knowledgeable of the method and can progress at a much quicker rate. It is definitely a case of 'use it or lose it'!

Keep up the hard work Year 6!
