This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with multiplication and division by 5.
Counting in 5s follows on closely from counting up and down in steps of 2. It is usually practised regularly, in order for the skill to be fluent, and children are also taught to recognise that multiples of five end in 5 or 0. Once the five times table is familiar, children will learn how to use the multiplication facts to solve division questions. For example, if they know that 2 times 5 = 10, then they may also recognise that 10 divided by 5 = 2 or 10 divided by 2 = 5.














The numbers are going up in fives

30 ÷ 5 = 6


We could work this out from knowing that 5 x 8 = 40 or 8 x 5 = 40

You would get the same answer from 5 x 10


If 12 groups of 5 makes 60, then 60 divided into groups of 12 will mean 5 in each group

7 ÷ 5 does not give a whole number as an answer


Multiples of 5 only end in 5 or 0

Counting up in 5s until you reach 95 is helpful here


Looking only at the last digit is important when spotting multiples of 5

There are 11 groups of 5 in 55
