### Planning and Activities

**Day 1**

Model using multiplication grid to find division facts including remainders, i.e. by tracing along 3s row to find 18 ÷ 3 then 20 ÷ 3.

**Further Teaching with Y4**

Divide 47 ÷ 3 using an ENL then using a vertical layout. Discuss links between the methods; then repeat for further examples, e.g. 68 ÷ 5, 67 ÷ 3 and 91 ÷ 4.

**Group Activities: T with Y4**

Y3 -- Division card game, using dice to generate random divisors.

Y4 -- Play a game or investigate dividing 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers (with remainders). Reason about patterns of remainders.

**Day 2**

Recap of vertical division layout – Y4 model for Y3, show how it draws on division facts.

**Further Teaching with Y3**

Complete blank divisions table – dividing numbers from 19 upwards by 2, 3, 4, 5, etc. and looking for patterns.

**Group Activities: T with Y4**

Y3 -- Complete blank divisions table, exploring patterns.

Y4 -- Divide 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers (with remainders). Some children will divide 3-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers.

**Day 3**

Find unit fractions. Use a visual model using a strip of 12 objects to find a half, a quarter and a third of 12. Make the connection to division facts then record as a bar model.

**Group Activities: T with Y3**

Y3 -- Find quarters or eighths using times table facts.

Y4 -- Find unit fractions of quantities using division facts including larger numbers.

**Day 4**

Recap from previous day then extend to non-unit fractions, i.e. if 1/3 of 18 is 6 what is 2/3? Use a visual model of a 5 × 5 grid of stars to find fifths and also record in a bar model. Also for eighths of 24.

**Group Activities: T with Y3**

*Use the in-depth problem-solving investigation ‘Andy's Marbles’ from NRICH as today’s group activity.*

Or, use these activities:

Y3 -- Write multiplication, division and fraction sentences about arrays.

Y4 -- Using bar models, write fraction sentences to go with multiplication sentences for 24 and 40. Some children create a poster to explain how to find non-unit fractions.
