In Maths we will be learning about multiplication and division. Below are the written methods we will be using to solve larger calculations:
Can you use these methods to solve:
61 x 5
43 x 3
96 ÷ 6
87 ÷ 4
Can you challenge yourself to solve these word problems?
I have 74 sweets that need to be sorted into 5 party bags? Will they be shared equally?
Every week I get £3 pocket money, how much would I earn over the whole year?
Knowing their multiplication and related division facts will greatly help your child. We will be using our multiplication knowledge (e.g. 6 x 7 = 42 so 7 x 6 = 42) to work out related division facts (e.g. 42 ÷ 7 = 6 so 42 ÷ 6 = 7).Children are expected to rapidly recall their times table facts very quickly, in our weekly times tables test they have 3 minutes to do 30 questions.
At the bottom of our class pages are different times tables board games that you can print off and play at home!
The following websites are excellent for practising the recall of these facts.
There are also many apps that you can download on to iPads and iPhones.
Can you create your own times tables game for others to play and learn with? Could you create a times table song to help remember them?
Towards the end of the term we will be learning aboout calculating area. The following game challenges to make an area using shapes given - how well can you calculate an area?
