**Multiplication!**

We found out that there are lots of different ways to talk about multiplication.

You can say...

....but every time 3x2=6.

We then tried multiplying using ourselves!

You can say...

*2 add 2 add 2**3 lots of 2**3 groups of 2**3 times 2**3 multiplied 2*....but every time 3x2=6.

*Can you work out the sums we were making?*We then practised writing multiplication sums in different ways!

**We share and we care....even in maths lessons!**

We have been learning how to divide numbers.

We started by sharing out the cubes. Has Lulu shared the cubes correctly?

*Can you work out which photo is correct?***Is it fair?**(By the way, Lulu was brilliant at 'caring and sharing' so we had to fake these photos!)

**2 more....2 less!**

*What is 2 more than....? What is 2 less than....?*

Some counted on or back using their fingers.

Some hopped on or back using a number line or a 100 square.

Some just knew the answer in their heads!
