WALA: The difference between The Internet and The World Wide Web

Using the video (click the picture below), the PowerPoint below and your own research, create an Information Poster showing the similarities differences between the World Wide Web and the Internet. Think about your presentation, you can draw diagrams/pictures and colour. Remember your key facts! We would love to see your posters!




READING WALT: retrieve information

Zoom lesson 1

Today you will be answering questions about Robert Burns.


A Burns supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns, the author of many Scots poems. The suppers are normally held on or near the poet's birthday, 25 January, occasionally known as Robert Burns Day but more commonly known as Burns Night.

YOUR TASK: Using the video above and the PowerPoint below, complete the reading questions found in the documents. Choose your level of difficulty (the more stars at the bottom of the page, the harder it is). PFP - Can you complete the quiz using the video to help you?






WALT divide a 2 digit number by a 1 digit number.

Zoom lesson 2

Welcome to today's lesson, we will be learning to apply our times table knowledge to solve division calculations and problem using the PARTITIONING method involving PART PART WHOLE models.


We can also divide by grouping OR sharing using practical equipment, however we need to use more EFFICIENT written methods.


To begin with we can group like this:


Sometimes however you may not have an equal amount in each part - therefore you will need to exchange. You may need to exchange a TEN for ten ONES.











In this lesson you will be dividing using a written method. We will be using PARTITIONING today using a PART PART WHOLE model. 

The trick to this method is to partition the DIVIDEND (THE NUMBER YOU ARE DIVIDING) into TWO multiples of the DIVISOR (THE NUMBER YOU ARE DIVIDING BY) and divide both of these numbers by the DIVISOR. You then need to add both QUOTIENT (answers) together. 

You will notice that we have partitioned the divisor, 51 into two multiples of 3. We have chosen 30 and 21. You can then divide these numbers by 3 using your known multiplication facts.

You will notice that we have partitioned the divisor, 51 into two multiples of 3. We have chosen 30 and 21. 

TRY TO CHOOSE MULTIPLES WHICH ARE EASIER FOR YOU TO WORK OUT. E.g. multiples of 10 or 5 if possible.
