Our Maths Learning


Today we wil  be working practically to put objects into equal groups of either 2's, 5's or 10's. You will need some practical objects to group with; perhaps pasta, counters, lego bricks, raisins, sweets (I'd probably end up eating these!)laugh


Watch the PowerPoint presentation below; you may like to use your counting objects to predict the answers before revealing them. 






Using your counters and the task cards included on the sheets below to share your objects into equal groups. The one star challenge is based on sharing into 2 groups. The two and three star challenges look to share larger groups of objects in to groups of 2, 5 and 10. My recommendation would be that you stick to the one star challenge today, unless you are feeing very confident. 


When you have solved the question on your task card, you could draw your sets in your green books and record as follows;


There are _____ objects


We need _______(2,5,or 10) in each group


There are _____ groups.



For example,

There are 10 objects

We beed 2 groups

There are 5 groups.


Below are the task cards and example of how to lay out your work.
