All of your work is online for today on OneNote.

I hope you all have a lovely half term.

Then write three division (4 digit divided by 1 digit) calculations and solve them. Write a word problem to go with each calculation.

In English, we are still looking at the difference between formal and informal. Can you write your own checklist for both types? Use this to write an email and challenge a family member to decide whether your email is formal or informal.
