This week we are starting division and we are going to use our knowledge of counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s to help us. For our first lesson we are going to solve some division number sentences (sums) by sharing a number equally, so everyone has the same amount. We have previously done this in school. Please watch the videos below to remind yourselves on how to do this.
We have provided some activities for you to complete but as with the multiplication work, these are best done practically (so there is no need to print them). Remember as the videos suggests, you can use any object to represent the first number.
Alternatively, there are games to complete online.
or for an extra challenge, why not try this one!
Lesson 2 is about grouping objects equally. Please watch the videos first to remind yourself about what this means.
Here are some activities to complete practically.
The next lesson is about solving word problems. You can choose to either share or group to get the answer (some of you might even be able to count in your 2’s, 5’s or 10’s to get the answer).
And for those who like an extra challenge …
Linking to our previous learning…
Do you remember finding half or quarter of a shape? well we are now going to find half (by sharing into 2 equal groups) or a quarter of a group of objects (by sharing into 4 equal groups). If you watch the video below it will help you understand how to do this.
As always this work is best done practically and we have given you some ideas for finding half or a quarter of a group of objects in the activities below.
And if you want to challenge yourself … you can play the ‘Hit the button’ game for practising your general division facts or play the halving game.
