This week we'll be thinking about division by sharing equally between groups. You may want to use resources, like counters or the tens and ones website, to help you solve the questions. Before you start each day, please practise your 2s, 5s or 10s. The videos are hosted on YouTube so there may be adverts.
Once you have practised your 2s, 5s or 10s and completed your 5 a day, please watch the video below. If you are unable to do so then the presentation is below. The extension today is to have a go at reasoning problems - each are attached to the worksheets. If you are finding the questions in the video tricky, stop before I move on to explain the reasoning questions and start the worksheet then.
Once you have practised counting in 2s, 5s or 10s and completed your five a day, please watch the video below. Today starts with practising sharing into equal groups by using concrete resources - counters, pens, scraps of paper - or by using the link below to access the tens and ones. There are a list of questions to have a go at, making sure that each group is equal.
If you would like more practise at sharing practically, you can come up with your own questions or have a go at the game below. If you are ready to have a go with drawn representations, there are worksheets below as well as an extension question. When solving the worksheet questions, it may help to cross out the leaves as you go to avoid getting confused!
Once you have practised your 2s, 5s or 10s and completed your 5 a day, go through the presentation and complete the worksheets. As with Monday, the extension for each is attached to the worksheet and is a set of reasoning problems. If you are finding the initial problems tricky, stop the presentation before moving on to the reasoning problems.
Once you have practised your 2s, 5s or 10s and completed your 5 a day, have a look at the presentation on halving. Remember, halving is when something is split into two equal groups. There are worksheets for you to choose from and some halving challenge cards as an extension. There is also a link to a game where you can practise your halving of numbers if you would like.
Choose Level 2 to access halving
Once you've practised your 2s, 5s or 10s and completed your 5 a day, complete the arithmetic test below. Remember, try to be as accurate and as speedy as you can - look out for which sign the question is using.
