‘A school at the heart of its village’



Well done Y5.  We have been really impressed with the maths work that you have been sending in to school.  Today we will be looking at division once more and answering another set of questions.  The numbers will be getting larger but the method is exactly the same as yesterday and the day before.  There are also a couple of word problems on each sheet.  Have a go and let us know how you get on. There are two different worksheets below please only complete one of them.  We would like most of you to complete Maths Division 1, however if you are feeling confident then have a go at Maths Division 2.   


Today you will be planning which quotes you will include in your newspaper. See the document below for instructions and examples.
