Step 5-7: Consolidation of Steps 5-7 Year 3 Multiplication and Division Learning Video Clip

Vodi and Efna are helping to get the village ready for winter by counting out the stores of food. Pupils will help Vodi and Efna divide the fish between the stores, work out how many baskets of vegetables each house can have, complete a calculation with missing numbers, discover a mistake Efna has made in her division and finally help Vodi to work out how many bags of nuts and seeds will be left over after being shared between the houses.

This Learning Video Clip has been designed as a consolidation tool for steps 5 and 7. It contains content relevant to all these steps and can be used in parts to recap a particular step or in on its own at the end of a teaching sequence for the included steps.
