Maths – dividing by 2

Wednesday 22 February 2023

Our current Maths focus in Year 2 is multiplication and division. This week in 2C, we have been practising dividing by 2 by using sharing and grouping methods.

‘We know that dividing by two also means halving.’

Today, we worked in small groups to divide even numbers equally into two groups.

Help at home by collecting objects in the house such as fruit, coins or beads and dividing them equally into 2 groups. Make sure that you collect an equal number of objects! Challenge your child by asking them to explain why you have chosen an even number to divide into 2!
