Main lesson

Today, we will be dividing 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers again using the 'Bus Stop' method, but this time including remainders.


First, write the short date 19.01.21 and the title Short division with remainders. Use your ruler to underline both.


Next, have a look at the criteria below and complete your recap and anchor task

Then, have a look at the Powerpoint below  as it will explain to you how to carry out short division with remainders.

Today, we would like all of you to have ago at the red/orange/green sheet and then if you would like to challenge yourself further than have ago at the purple task.


Please show all working out in your books.




Today you are going to plan your independent text on Roman aqueducts. You can follow the model that you used last week for your writing on Roman roads.


Look at the facts we have given you on aqueducts on the plan below. Look at the facts and decide which would go into your introduction, which would go in a paragraph on why they were built and which would go in a paragraph on how they were built. You then need to add in the grammar for each paragraph. 


You must do this independently but you can look at your plan from last week to help give you some ideas and remind you of what you need to include.

Success criteria and writing plan

Design Technology


Today you are going to be designing your Roman aqueduct. Think back to the skills that you used last week. Which of those do you think would be good to use in your own aqueduct?


This is our WALT for today. This is the same as last week. Today we are focussing on the bottom two success criteria which are highlighted in bold.


WALT - To generate innovative ideas, considering appeal, function and purpose of the object.

Success Criteria

•    I can evaluate methods and identify criteria that can be used for my own designs
•    I can generate annotated sketches from different views showing specific features
•    I can clearly plan how to use materials, equipment and processes, and suggest alternative methods of making, if the first attempts fail.



Have a look at the PPT below. This has some examples of pupils' aqueducts. You are going to plan your own. 

Remember, your aqueduct will need to carry water from one end to the other so it will need to be built on a slight slant and the tube inside will need to be waterproof.

Plan your aqueduct on the planning sheet below. It needs to be annotated with the methods and materials that you are planning to use. Label which materials you are going to use and explain how you will join them together.


I have attached an example plan for you to see. I have done this in felt tip so that you can see the drawing clearly. Please make sure that you complete your design in pencil. Use a ruler where necessary.
