Starter 1: Daily 10 – 4 x tables - DIVISION


Starter 2:

check your answers at the bottom of the page.


Starter 3: What is a quotient?

Today we’ll be sharing two and three digit numbers by one! (Without regrouping)


Look at the example below.

64 ÷ 3 = ?

We should start by sharing the most significant digit in the dividend (number being divided).

In each group, there are 2 tens and 1 one. The quotient is 21 and there is 1 remaining.


Now try this question for a little more practice:

1. 364 ÷ 3 =

Answer at the bottom of the page.


Now try these for your main task today:

Draw the cherry model (circles) / part-whole model to solve these division problems? See an example of the cherry model underneath the questions.



Today I would like you to think about some items, objects and imaginary things that you may put in your very own magic box.


Read the poem below again to remind yourself of what is in the box.

See if you can notice the features listed below in the first verse. (You may want to highlight these for later if you can)


Verse 1: Alliteration - When multiple words in a sentence or phrase start with the                                                  same sound (e.g. Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled                                                            peppers. ...).



Now think of 3 items, objects or imaginary things that you could put into your box.


Your task today is to write the first verse of your poem trying to use alliteration to describe your three items. Remember to be as descriptive as you can and your item/object can be anything that comes to your mind.



Listen to the reading of The Magic Box poem below.


Notice how the reader changes their voice throughout the poem.

They changed the way they read it by:

•          Speeding up / Slowing down.

•          Taking pauses at just the right moments.

•          Putting emphasis on certain words.

•          Showing punctuation in their voice.


Practise reading the Magic Box Poem aloud as a sort of performance.

Use these prompts to help you remember when you might change the way you read it.


Can you read it to include as many of the ways they changed their voice in the video?




Maths starter 2 answers:


1. 9       2. 9        3. 7          4. 8           5. 10


Maths extra practice answers:

1. 364 ÷ 3 =

Draw the cherry model (circles) to show:

300 ÷ 3 = 100

60 ÷ 3 = 20

4 ÷ 3 = 1r1

Now we need to add: 100 + 20 + 1r1 = 121r1
