This session is about using the bus stop division method. As a recap of this technique, click through the following Powerpoint as a slide show. This shows the way to layout the calculation and the use of decimal points. Don't forget to do the warm up calculations on the second page.

The worksheet below has several levels of challenge to choose from. Use a multiplication square to help you if you need. The extension involves calculating the missing digit.

At the end of the worksheet is a set of model answers which you will be able to self mark against. Don't forget the short dotty date of 02.04.20 and use LO of short division, making clear which challenge level you are working on.

The task sheet below outlines the work to be completed over the next two days. Your focus today is to plan on the planning template what you would like to write. Remember, this task is a formal letter so make sure to use the style detailed in the Powerpoint above.
