This week, Year 6 were introduced to some brand new learning in maths… long division!
We learnt that this is where you divide by 2-digit numbers. This can be quite tricky so first we worked through a method which helps you to calculate the times tables of 2-digit numbers. This was a really important step in the long division process.
Then we moved onto learning the process needed for long division. This required lots of concentration, practice and a huge amount of resilience! After a few lessons working through a range of calculations, I am very proud to say that the children have confidently grasped the concept of long division!
I cannot wait to see how much the children can push themselves next week as they learn how to apply their skills to problem solving questions next week.
