In Maths, the children will begin a two week unit to learn multiplication. They will begin the week by counting in 2, 5 and 10 and then move onto investigating how numbers can be put into groups of 2’s, 5 and 10’s. Following this, they will write addition sums to represent these groups to introduce the notion that multiplication is repeated addition e.g. 3x4 = 3+3+3+3. Once the children have understood this concept they will begin to draw arrays to represent mulitplicaton calucations. The children will then be given mental and written problems and asked to solve them using one of the strategies they have learnt over the week.
Multiplication, groups, addition, arrays, times table
