Another worksheet for our ‘Using and Applying Maths’ strand. Most children have more difficulty with division than any of the other operations. At this early stage it is important to try and get across the idea of division as sharing. This can be done in a practical way with sweets, coins etc. This maths worksheet helps to show whether a child has understood division by asking them to make up their own sentences having been given the numbers.
Remember to read the example shown in the speech bubble. Some children will more or less copy this with their own answer but encourage them to be more imaginative. If working with you they could give several different sentences for the same number sentence.
