Starter 1: Daily 10 – 2 x tables - DIVISION


Starter 2:

check answers at the bottom of the page.


Remember to practise your 2, 3, 4, 5 and 8 times tables and related division facts every day for the next few weeks!

Example: 2x2=4; 4/2=2


Today we’ll be revising place value so that we could flexibly regroup numbers ready for exploring division with larger numbers!


 What is place value? .

Place Value is the value of each digit in a number. It means understanding that 582 is made up of 500, 80 and 2, rather than 5, 8 and 2.


Watch this place value video:


1) Now read the statement below.

Do you agree with this statement?

Check the answers at the bottom of the page

Now try these for the rest of today’s task:

Work through the different place value statement and questions.  Provide reasoning and examples in your book.


2) Which statement is true?

•          26 can be shown as 2 tens and 6 ones

•          26 ones

•          16 ones and 1 ten?


3) Is it true that 327 can be made from 32 tens and 7 ones?

4) Write the number that is 23 tens and 5 ones.


Reading and Writing

This week we are focusing on poetry in the aim to write our own poems using imaginative and descriptive vocabulary.


Today we are going to look at two example poems to see what we like about them and the features that we may want to try and include in the poetry that we write.


Read the two poems below



Your task today is to compare these two poems and make a note of the similarities and differences between them.


You may notice things such as:

•          the themes of the poems

•          repetition of words or phrases

•          the length of the lines

•          the form of poetry they are written in (rhyme/ free verse)

or anything else that stands out as being the same/ different to you.


Record your findings in a table like the one below you may want to expand yours to show more similarities and differences.




Maths starter answers:


1. 8       2. 7        3. 5          4. 9              5. 9


Maths task answers:


  1. Yes, 270 can be shown as two hundreds and seven tens (200+ 70) but also as 270 ones (if we counted all the tiny cubes ) or as 27 tens (if we counted in tens); we can regroup (=rearrange; change groups, e.g. ones into tens) numbers in different ways;
  2. All statements are correct.
  3. Yes; also as three hundreds, two tens and seven ones.
  4. 23 tens=23x10=230 + 5 ones =235
