Good morning!

Hope you have a lovely Thursday!

Shiver me timbers, it's your literacy activity!

Your maths activity today.

Hopefully we are developing confidence in  making equal groups of 2, 5 and 10. Today we will use pictorial representations to visualise equal groups. Some of you may like to use  concrete apparatus or objects for grouping (such as coins, counters, pasta, lego bricks etc...) to help. We will understand that some numbers will not create equal groups. For example, 15 will make 3 equal groups of 5, but no equal groups of 10  or 2 can be made. Some of you may see patterns and make a link between the numbers. For example, numbers that end in 5 can always make groups of 5 but not 2. 
Ask questions such as:
How many groups can you see using the picture?

How many equal groups of 2 / 5 / 10 can be made?
Can equal groups be made? How can we check?
What makes a group equal? What will each group look like?
How can we make this group equal?

Today's RE activity. Please read the story and then complete the creative activity.

Hope you enjoy the pirate story!
