These sums have been done to exhaustion this week. All children have grasped the concept, altough I would have liked it better if all of them knew the tables through and through.
Here is the kind of 'story sum' we are doing now:

(sorry the picture is a bit blurry)
After 'promising' myself to 'never again' to do a day jam packed with activities...well I i broke the promise. Children were as hyper as ever, they were too excited to be out of uniform for a day...well most of them.
So we started the day by reading the book :
Then we wrote on our 'Stories' scrapbook about this story. It was fun recording the children, even though it was frustrating stopping and starting about a million times.
As a conversation lesson, I videoed the children talking about football (in English). These videos need to be heavily edited...you really don't want to see children fighting and acting silly in the background.
We also made a board full of newspaper cuttings, read a few of them and put them up according to the different teams.
I really really wanted to do a penalty shootout, but time ran out. We shall do it next week.

Division sums are dead easy, we do them on a single line. All the children have to do is study the multiplication tables real hard.
This site has got LOADS of interactive games regarding multiplication sums.
That will be good training for you for when you get to do division.
How easy is dividing?
ex 18 ./. 3
We start saying the X3 table until we hit 18.
so 6 X 3 = 18
therefore 18 divided by 3 = 6.
