Year 5 Maths Thursday 25th February

Welcome back to your maths learning! This week, we are having a slight change. We are moving away from some of the White Rose resources and doing a recap of our four operations and a Fractions recap of what you have learnt so far last half term, before carrying on again with fractions next week.


Multiplication and Division 2

Starter: Today we would like you to roll a 10-sided dice (here is a virtual dice https://mathsstarters.net/dice ) to…


1. Roll to create a 2-digit number and a 3-digit numbers and multiply those together

eg. 52 x 138


2. Roll to create a 2-digit number and a 4-digit number and multiply those together

eg. 49 x 2,418


3. Roll to create a 4-digit number and a 1-digit number. Divide the 4-digit by the 1-digit. Do you get any remainders? Roll again if you get 0,1 or 2 as your 1-digit number. eg. 3,896 divided by 8
