Begin with your Gem Maths as usual. Next you are going to practise counting up and down in 5s. Start from zero and see if you can count up to and then down from fifty. Then try counting up and down from other multiples of five within one hundred. What do the numbers always need to end in when you are counting in 5s?
Make Equal Groups - Grouping
Today you are going to practise making equal groups from a given total as an introduction division. You are not going to be doing any formal division at this stage but are going to record and show your understanding through sentences instead. You are also going to see if you can recognise amounts that cannot be grouped equally.
Watch the video below of me grouping some objects.
Now have a go at seeing what can you can group various numbers in. Use some objects or items from around your home to help.
Try seeing if you can put the following into groups of two, five or ten:
6, 7, 15, 20
Which of the numbers would split into groups of two, five or ten? How could you tell? Don't forget to count the number of groups you have each time.
Once you have done this, complete the table and try the questions below.
The questions are attached in a document below.
