Like I said on Monday, today is a recap of short division. You have done this in Year 4 and Year 5, so I'm hoping you will be quite confident tackling questions set. Once again, you can check straightforward division questions using a calculator.

• Warm-up: Complete the arithmetic sheet at the bottom of the page. Can you get your best score and time?
• Main tasks: Open document at the bottom of the page.

### Wider Curriculum / Foundation Subject: DT / PSHE

Now, more than ever, the importance of farming and food in general has been thrust into the forefront of the news and our lives. Below is an example of how some shelves of everyday foods, like milk, were left empty when people began to stockpile because of coronavirus in early March. This has led to big changes at supermarkets, including rationing some foods and some products being unavailable due to supply issues.

So where does our food come from? How is it produced? How far has it travelled to get to our plates? These are just some of the questions we will be exploring over the next few sessions.

Knowing where foods come from, how they are grown or reared and make it onto our supermarket shelves is vitally important to understand the supply chain and the impact on people's lives and the environment. Today and Friday, I will be setting you tasks that are found on Discovery Education: Espresso (not coding).

• Go to: Discovery Education: Espresso > Key Stage 2 > DT > Food and Farming.
• Click on the videos tab, and watch 'What's on my plate?' and 'Growing Crops'
• Read the fact files about 'What's on my plate?' and 'Growing Crops'
• Click on activities tab and complete the tasks for 'What's on my plate?' and 'Growing Crops'
• Open and complete the 'What's on my plate?' document at the bottom of this page. If you do not have a printer, then do your best to sketch an outline of the main continents and draw on the foods.
