Friday 29th January
Today is a time to consolidate your understanding of formal multiplication by watching yesterday's videos (below) again and finishing any work from the last few days, correcting any errors you may have made.
If you have finished and are confident with the methods covered this week, have a go at the reasoning and problem solving activities in the file below. The answers will be uploaded onto the Teams task in the afternoon so you can check your work.
We'd also like you to get onto the TTrockstars local Lockdown Battle - let's see if we can knock St Nicholas & St Laurence off the school leaderboard top spot --- there are 10 days left!

Today we will practise long multiplication by multiplying with 2 digits.
First watch the videos below, which talk you through multiplying 2 digits by 2 digits then 3 digits by 2 digits.
Now practise the method that you need to improve on.
Make your own calculations up and remember to estimate first.
If you are confident with those stages, then move on to the White Rose lessons:
- multiplying 4 digits by 2 digits BASIC PRACTISE (last week's lesson)
- multiplying 4 digits by 2 digits MOVE ON (new),

Today we will revisit long multiplication (or column method) by following this lesson:
For something easier try:
For more reasoning catch up with Mathletics assignments.
Tuesday 26th 25th January
We are revisiting a skill that you should be fluent in by the end of Year 5 - please use or draw your own place value charts if you cannot move the digits in your head.
NEED IT EASIER, TRY:
There is an extra challenge below and some reasoning too.
