Long Division 1 Lesson

This Year 6 Long Division 1 lesson covers the prior learning of dividing by a 1-digit number using short division, before moving onto the main skill of dividing 3-digit numbers by 2-digit numbers using long division.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. 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.
