Maths – Division

Lesson 9 – Division – Solving division word problems

LO: To be able to use division strategies to solve word problems.

SC1. I can consider what the key information is in a word problem.

SC2. I can rewrite key information into a number sentence

SC3. I can use division strategies to solve problems.

Over the last few weeks we have been developing strategies for solving division number problems. We recapped grouping and sharing and then looked at how to use new strategies to “chunk” on a number line and how to exchange when using arrays. If you have forgotten any of the steps then you may wish to review some of the videos which you will still find by looking at the previous few weeks work.

Today, we are going to use our new skills to help us solve division word problems. In all of these problems we will need to consider what the key information in the question is, how do we present our question in a number sentence and which strategy do we wish to use?

Here is an example of a division word problem:

 “A teacher asks some children to arrange 32 chairs into rows of eight chairs. How many rows will there be?”

Here we can see that the key information is that there are 32 chairs in total and we need to share them between 8 rows.

You may notice that in word problems the numbers can be written as both digits and words. This is a very common strategy to test that you recognise a number in both formats.

When we rewrite this number we know it’s division so the largest number goes first:

32 ÷ 8 =

We can now solve using our preferred method.

I have put together a video and PowerPoint to help you with today’s learning.




Today, I would like you to use “chunking” on a number line, arrays or a mix of both strategies to help solve the problems you will find on the PowerPoint. There is also a challenge question as well.


Break/Snack Time



Watch the video below to see this week’s challenge.




LO: To understand what is included in a script

SC1) I can discuss the features of a script

SC2) I can identify the features of a script

SC3) I can begin to write a simple script

This week we are taking part in the “It’s show time” challenge. We will be learning about script writing and making our own puppet show! Today, we are going to be looking at the features of a script and identifying these in an example. Follow the link below to see the features of a script we will be using:


Write down or tell an adult what features you have seen?

Watch the video below of me talking through the features of a script and identifying these features.



When writing a script, there may also be an extra “character” who is not in the actual play. This is the narrator who tells parts of the story. You will see this in the example below.


Task – Look at the script below and identify the features

Extension – Write a very short script with 1 scene and 2 characters. They may only say one thing each. Remember to include all of the features with the correct presentation.





LO: To generate ideas for a play

SC1) I can present my ideas on paper

SC2) I can choose my best idea and justify my choice


As you know, we are going to be making our own puppet show. In order to do this, we will need to think of a few ideas of what our show will be about. For this, I will lay out a few options below.


Chilli Challenge:


Mild:     Choose a fairy tale to base your puppet show on. You can take the characters in the story and the storyline to make a puppet show.


Spicy:    Choose a fairy tale to base your puppet show on. This time, change the story slightly. You could introduce a new character or change the story itself.


Hot:      If you are feeling very confident, create your very own puppet show with your own characters and own storyline.


Choose one of the options above and start to plan your puppet show! We are going to do this Reflective Journal style with plenty of colour, drawings and writing. We would like you to come up with 3 ideas for stories including the characters and what each one will be about. See my example below. After you have come up with your ideas, choose your best idea and explain why you have chosen this.


TTRockstars, Mathletics or Mental Maths Times Tables Challenge


For this week’s Times Tables challenge we would like you to focus on the 8x tables. We have put together some videos which show different strategies for learning the 8x tables. II have also attached the link to the “Times Tables Generator”, where you can challenge yourself to get not only a higher mark but also a faster time.
