Divide Decimals by Integers Lesson

This Year 6 Divide Decimals by Integers lesson covers the prior learning of dividing 4-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers, before moving onto the main skill of dividing decimals by whole numbers.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
