Welcome back and we hope you had a lovely and relaxing time over the holidays! We have gotten started straight away on our understanding of multiplication as the repeated addition of equal groups. We thought about rollercoaster carriages and the groups of people in each carriage. We displayed this using post-it notes for our carriages and counters for our people. We then added the groups of people in each carriage to see if the total amount matched the multiplication fact.
We are also very excited to share our new topic with you – more information to follow!
