Learn how grouping equally relates to division.

This lesson includes:

• two videos
• three activities

Created in partnership with Times Tables Rockstars

By the end of this lesson, you will appreciate:

• what 'grouping equally' and 'not grouping equally' means.
• that 'into groups of' is a way to understand what the ÷ symbol means.
• how to answer a division question in the 2s, 5s or 10s such as 30 ÷ 5 = 6.
• if you know a division fact, such as 30 ÷ 5 = 6, you can use it to help to work out 30 ÷ 6 = 5.

Watch this video which shows how to put objects into equal groups and focuses on the language of 'into groups of'.

The video provides opportunities for talking, handling real objects and answering questions.

To understand what suffixes are, be able to identify them in words and start using them in your writing.

This lesson includes:

• a video explaining suffixes
• three activities to do at home

Learn

A suffix is a letter or group of letters that goes on the end of a word and changes the word's meaning.

• Sometimes they also change the original word's spelling. When adding a suffix you might have to double the last letter. For example when adding ed to drop you also double the p so it becomes dropped.

Some suffixes have specific uses. For example:

• Adding ing can change a noun into a verb, like garden to gardening.
• Using the suffix ed can turn a verb to the past tense, like jump becomes jumped.

Watch the video below to find out more.
