## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- For every one group of 6 there are two groups of 3
- For a number to be divisible by 6, it must be divisible by both 2 and 3

### Common misconception

Lack of understanding of key terms such as: 'digit,' 'number.' Pupils may also forget how to identify an even number.

Remind children that even numbers end in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8. Explain clearly the difference between the key terms and encourage children to test the divisibility rule on both 3 digit and 4 digit numbers.
