Hello everyone. I hope you are all okay and well. It was nice to see so many of you on the zoom call. Hopefully you will be a little better at using 'there, their and they're now. Remember we will be meeting online again today at 12. See you there.

Maths:

Today in maths you will progress on to learning how to do simple division which have remainders. Like always when learning something new, you will have to persevere and concentrate extra hard. Just do your best that's all I can ask. Leave out any questions you cannot do and make a note of them so you can tell me about them in the zoom call. Watch the video and answer the questions in the link below. You may need to watch the video a couple of times if you find it tricky. Also pause the video at points to give yourself time to do some calculations, this may help your understanding. Question 7 and 8 are a challenge so only do them if you can. Good luck Kingfisher!
