The chunking method helps children divide larger numbers by spliting it up into smaller chunks. It is a good way to introduce division using larger numbers as children divide using more manageable numbers, this is especially useful if they are not very good with their times tables yet.

Once children have mastered the skill of division using the chunking method, they can then move only more efficient ways of dividing, such as the traditional short division method. Some schools use the term 'bus stop' method to describe this.

"Amazing site just renewed my subscription for the second year. This site is well structured and has helped to assure me that the work we do at home co-ordinates and strengthens the work done at school."

Reena Chohan

"Teach My Kids is a fantastic resource. We use the work sheets to reinforce the Maths and English that our children, James 9 and Katie 8, are learning at school. They are ideal for when we have a spare 10 – 15 minutes, and also give us as parents the opportunity to see how much our kids know!

As and when the work sheets are completed, I log in and tick them as completed, so it’s clear which topics have been covered. I try to do 2 - 4 of worksheets a week and feel that they are of great benefit to both our children.

I would definitely recommend ‘Teach My Kids’, it’s fantastic value for money and if you have any questions or queries these are answered promptly."
