After finishing our latest unit, all about money, we have now moved onto looking at multiplication. Earlier this week, we worked on recognising equal groups and adding equal groups, and today we were introduced to the multiplication symbol. We began by using cubes to create equal groups, and we then wrote the addition sentence to represent this.  We then discussed that the multiplication symbol can mean ‘lots of, and this then helped us to write the corresponding multiplication sentence. Next week, we will begin to learn the 2, 5 and 10 times table, and we will be sharing some information about accessing Times Table Rockstars.
