Prime numbers worksheets are a useful resource when your child comes across them while on their educational journey. However, learning what they are and how to recognise them can be a bit tricky! Not to worry, we’re here to help! Our selection of prime numbers worksheets will provide your child with all the support and guidance they need! Prime numbers are actually quite easy to define, simply because any number that is only divisible by 1 and itself is a prime number. Some of the easiest examples of prime numbers are 2, 3, 5 and 7. Your child can learn about these special examples using our prime numbers worksheets, which will also be useful when tackling some of our other maths worksheets.
