## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- All numbers in the two times table are divisible by 2
- If a number is even, it is in the two times table and is divisible by 2
- If a number is odd, it is not divisible by 2 because when divided by 2, it does not give two whole numbers.

### Common misconception

Children may not see 2-digit numbers as divisible by 2 if they are not in their 2 times tables.

Encourage children to apply the knowledge that a number is divisible by 2 when it is even. The distinction between even and odd numbers can be revisited prior to the lesson and displayed to reference within the lesson.
