Miss Robinson’s maths class have been practicing their multiplication, times tables and division skills over the past few weeks.

This week we have focused a lot on division and ‘easy’ ways to work it out. The children have learnt how to share the big number into equal groups depending on the number they are dividing by.

To aid the children in their learning, they have used various practical resources such as; base 10 and the part-whole method, place value counters for grouping and the cuisenaire rods to help visual learners.

By the end of these practical lessons, a lot of children have been saying, “Maths is actually really easy!”
