WB 20-04-20

This week in maths, we will be looking at multiplication! This will begin with counting in 2s and 5s to recap their prior learning, progressing to counting in 10s, making equal groups and adding equal groups. Children in Year 1 should be able to recognise multiplication being the same as repeated addition. They do not use the multiplication symbol at this stage and refer instead as 'groups of' or 'lots of' amounts.

If you want to continue practising making equal groups, use objects around your home and have a go at these:


2 equal groups of 10

3 equal groups of 5

6 equal groups of 2


Maybe your grown-up could make different groups of objects for you to check and count!
