## Lesson details

### Key learning points

1. If you can count in 2s, you can count in 20s. The 1s or 10s digit follows the pattern of 2, 4, 6, 8 and 0
2. If you can count in 5s, you can count in 50s. The 1s or 10s digit follows the pattern of 5 and 0
3. When you count up in 25s, the 10s and 1s digits are always 25, 50, 75 or 0

### Common misconception

Pupils may make mistakes with counting, particularly when crossing a 100s boundary.

Encourage pupils to use the pattern to help them count accurately, using this to predict the next number in the count.

### Keywords

• Multiple - A multiple is the result of multiplying a number by another whole number.

• Pattern - A pattern is a repeated set of numbers, shapes or objects.

Encourage pupils to count out loud as much as possible. Base ten block representations may also be helpful for pupils to represent numbers as they say the count.
