Multiplying 2 digit numbers by 2 digit numbers… 

Today the Famous Fives have been very busy representing multiplication using dienes. After we had completed some concrete work (using dienes), we moved onto pictorial representations . This really deepened our understanding of what multiplication is and will help us as we move onto long multiplication.

Multiplication Madness!

This week we started our Maths topic based on multiplication.

We began by creating equal groups. We used plates and counters to make these equal groups.

We then began to add these equal groups.

Finally we started to write multiplication sentences to match our equal groups.
