Reading

 

Reading is so important for us to learn. We can find out about lots of exciting things. Whatever topic you enjoy whether it is: space, the Greeks or Great Britain, you can learn everything there is to know about it through your reading. 

 

Delve into a great story and be taken away to a different land! Stories also help our imagination and creativity. 

 

Please try to read at least 5 times a week to help set you up with the skills and knowledge to learn to your full potential!

 

Big Maths

In maths, we are using column methods for the four operations. Here are some examples:

 

Addition:

Always line the digits up using place value

Don't forget to add the carry overs

Always write the addition symbol so that you don't forget your calculation

 

 

Subtraction:

Always line the digits up using place value

Always write the subtraction symbol

If you cannot take one number from the other, borrow one from the next column.

 

 

 

Multiplication:

Always line the digits up using place value

Always ADD the carried numbers

When you are multiplying by 2d number, always put the place holder '0' to help you multiply by the tens digit.

If you are multiplying by 3d number , always put two place holder '0's to help you multiply by 100.

 

 

 

Division:

If there is a remainder, carry it over to the next column

Use your times table facts to help you divide each digit

 

 

Long Division:

Long division works by dealing with the largest column 1st - in the case below the 8 (800).

How many times does 4 go into 8? ... from the 4 times table ..2 x 4 = 8. Write the 2 above the 8 and the result, 8, is written below the 8.

 

 

Work out the remainder by subtracting 8 from 8, 8-8=0 Now bring the 5 down to make 05 the next number to divide into.

 

How many times does 4 go into 5? ... from the 4 times table ..1 x 4 = 4. Write the 1 above the 5 and the result, 4, is written below the 5.

 

 

 

Work out the remainder by subtracting 4 from 5, 5-4=1 Now bring the 6 down to make 16 the next number to divide into.

 

How many times does 4 go into 16? ... from the 4 times table ..4 x 4 = 16. Write the 4 above the 6 and the result, 16, is written below the 16.

Finally, subtract 16 from 16, 16-16=0, which means that there is no remainder.

The answer is 214 with no remainder.
