Year 2

Today Year 2 we will be focusing upon dividing by 2 or halving objects or numbers. Remember that division is the inverse of multiplication so recalling our 2x table will help us when dividing by 2.Last week we finished by using a number line to solve division problems by counting on and then counting the number of equal groups we had. We can count forwards and backward on a number line but we tend to focus on counting forwards as this is the method most of you find easier.

Watch the video then complete the Year 2 Challenge for all. If you wish you can complete one of the 1,2,or 3 Star Challenges.

Year 3

This week Year 3 we are still focusing on division but this time with numbers that can’t be shared or grouped equally, in other words they may be numbers left over. We call this division with remainders. Watch the video on class dojo and then try one of the Challenges.
