Remind yourself of the written methods for division.

Next week you will be learning about division. Watch these videos to help you.
The method that you learned in Year 3 is division on a number line. In year 4 we will also teach you chunking.

Sometimes there may be a remainder:

A man below shows you how to do chunking. Instead of taking away one group at a time, you take away ‘chunks’ to save time with larger numbers.
A good tip is to see if you can take 10 groups away.
If not can you take 5 groups?
If not can you take 2 groups?
Finally take away a single group.
