Multiplication and Division
Year 2 will be learning to recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers. Children will calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division within the multiplication tables and write them using the multiplication (×), division (÷) and equals (=) signs. Year 2 children will also show that multiplication of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and division of one number by another cannot. Also during this half term, children will solve problems involving multiplication and division, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods, and multiplication and division facts, including problems in contexts.
Year 3 children will be recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables. Children will write and calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division using the multiplication tables that they know, including for two-digit numbers times one-digit numbers, using mental and progressing to formal written methods. And finally this term, Year 3 will solve problems, including missing number problems, involving multiplication and division, including positive integer scaling problems and correspondence problems in which n objects are connected to m objects.
Year 2 children will be working on 2, 5 and 10, and Year 3 will be concentrating on 3, 4 and 8 times tables. This is also a good activity the children can undetake at home. The links below are useful websites which the children should find fun and engaging, a great way to help them master their times tables.
Weekly homework givven out on a Friday will relate to that week's topic.
