This week we are looking at multiplication and division. We explored arrays and have been working hard on explaining and reasoning in our apply tasks. Sometimes we use equipment to help us and if we are stuck, we can use the coaching questions on the working wall to help us solve a problem. Here we are in action...
Maths talk prompts and questions:
We have been looking closely at fractions and improving our understanding of equivalence and finding fractions of amounts. We used both unit and non-unit fractions.
We have been improving our understandIng of addition and subtraction; using bigger numbers and adding numbers which involve crossing one and two boundaries. We continued to use our pictorial representations to explain what we were doing.
