Friday 3rd April 

Happy Friday guys! Today’s activity is some bus stop division word problems. For each question you will need to use the same method you used yesterday. Watch my video again if you need a reminder of how to use this method. You need to read the question carefully to work out what your final answer will be. For example, for question 1, you need to do 725 divided by 3, which is 241 remainder 2. The question asks how many trays you will need for all the books, making the answer 242, as you still need a tray for the 2 books that are remaining!

I’ve also put the answers for yesterday’s and today’s activities down below, so mark your answers and see how many you got correct – send me an email and let me know how you are getting on!

I’ve also done an update on the Year 5 Home Learning homepage, so please have a read if you have time! I won’t be posting any activities until after the Easter Holidays (the next maths activity will be posted on the 14th of April) so stay safe and make sure you are still working on your maths skills wherever possible – use the online learning page for links to lots of websites you can use to help you with your maths! If you have any questions or want to say hello over Easter, email me at – I’d love to hear from you!

Hello Year 5! Moving on from your work on multiplication this week, you are now going to have a go at some division. I know that we often forget how to do division when it comes to arithmetic tests and some of us forget that the bus stop method even exists! I’ve done a video reminding you of the method and if you need any extra help, just send me an email. The work is down below, along with the answers to Wednesday’s work. Try as many as you can!

Hello Year 5 – no maths today! Only joking, April Fools!!!! Today I have some tricky word problems using your multiplication skills that you have practised on Monday and Tuesday. The first 8 questions are all 1 step problems. The last 4 questions (the challenge) are all multi-step problems, which means there will be 2 or more different steps or calculations that you need to do (they will all use multiplication at some point though). Please have a go at the challenge if you can – it will keep your brain active for when we are back in school!

If you need help, re-watch the videos from Monday and Tuesday or send me an email – Answers for Tuesday are also down below!

Morning everyone. Building on yesterday’s 4 digit x 1 digit multiplication questions, today I have given you some 4 x 2 digit questions. These are quite tricky and I know a lot of you find them difficult when we do arithmetic tests, so use these questions to practise the method and try as many questions as you can. If the PDF doesn’t load, refresh the page. 

If you can’t remember how to do this method, I have done another video below where I explain the working out to a question. If you need any more help with these questions, just send me an email, I’m still here to help if you need anything!

Also, don’t forget my two important rules – circle your carried numbers and add the zero! It might also be a good idea to write your times tables down first so you don’t make any mistakes with these.

Hello Year 5, hope you’re ready for another week of online maths learning – I know I am definitely missing our maths lessons together at school! After a week on our column addition and subtraction methods last week, this week we are going to be recapping our column multiplication method and bus stop division method.

Today I have given you some 4 digit x 1 digit multiplication questions. If the questions don’t show up, try refreshing the page. I have also put some challenges below if you are feeling up to it! Answers will be up tomorrow. 

If you need reminders on how to do this method of multiplication, I have created a short video of me completing a question, so make sure to watch if you aren’t sure!  Remember, if you need any more help or want to show me any pictures of maths you have been up to, just email the class email,
