Maths:

This week we are focusing on learning the written methods for multiplying a 2-digit number with a 1-digit number and dividing a 2 digit number by a 1-digit number. The methods that we use can be found on this website in the Calculation Policy.

Lesson 1

We are learning to use related calculations, for example: 3 x 5 = 15 so  3 x 50 = 150.

Lesson 2

In this lesson we use the grid method to firstly partition a two-digit into tens and ones, followed by multiplying it by the one-digit number.

Please see resources below: You can draw your own grids and either copy or make up your own calculations to solve.

Lesson 3

In this lesson we perform the same calculations but learn to use the long written method - learning to always begin by multiplying the ones column first.

Lesson 4/5

We are practising these methods and when confident moving to the short written method with exchanging. Please see resources below.

Art:

We are continuing our work on Kandinsky. This week we are going to make a 3D paper collage in the style of Kandinsky pictures using cutting, folding and sticking.

Topic:

We are continuing to think about the Roman Army, how they successfully invaded Britain and why they enabled the Romans to build such a huge empire. Some resources are below.
