Maths – Multiplication

Lesson 12 – Multiplication

LO: To use a formal written method when multiplying.

SC1. I can use an array to support my understanding of a concept.

SC2. I can create a multiplication grid.

SC3. I can use my knowledge of times tables to solve number problems.

SC4. I can use column addition to complete my answer to a problem.


Over the last few weeks, we have been using arrays to help solve multiplication problems.

Today, we are going to use this knowledge and our knowledge of the times tables to help us begin to use a more formal written method. This formal method is called the multiplication grid method.

For today’s lesson we will continue to create our arrays with the counters but we will put it alongside the new method. This will help support both those children who are not as confident when solving multiplication problems and it will also help those who are more confident by ensuring that they fully understand the links between the two methods.



If we had a problem such as 13x3=, we can use the multiplication arrays and the grid method and present our work like this:










Today, I would like you to use the same strategy I have used. First draw your arrays to solve and then underneath draw the grid method and use that to solve the number problem. You should have the same answer for both, if not then you need to check your answers.

Today, I would like you to solve:

  1. 3x21=
  2. 2x33=
  3. 4x12=
  4. 2x14=
  5. 2x44=

Remember that presentation is very important. You must use a ruler to draw the multiplication grid for your arrays.  Give yourself plenty of room and don’t to solve too many problems on one page.

The answers to the questions can be found by opening an attachment found below. As well as the answers I have also provided the grids to show how your work should have been presented.


Break/Snack Time


English –


LO: To write a letter

SC1) I can use appropriate informal language in my letter

SC2) I can use present my work neatly

SC3) I can I can check my work to make sure it’s the best it can be


Today we will be writing our letters to someone to fill their bucket. You can present your letter in any way you wish. This could be a full letter, a letter with a picture or photo or a postcard. Please use the full time for this letter as it needs to be the best it can be. The more time and effort you put into this letter, the happier you will make the person receiving the letter. I am really looking forward to seeing all of your letters and I’m sure the people receiving your letter will be extremely happy.





Music – Singing practise

What is the Trinity? – Lesson 1

A “Gospel” is a story which if from the life of Jesus and it is meant to teach us things.

One Gospel is from Matthew Chapter 3.

Watch the video:



After watching the video, I would like you think about the meaning of the water, the voice from the sky and the dove?

To help show your ideas I would like you to draw the scene of Jesus being baptised by John and then underneath write a short explanation of your ideas about the water, the voice and the dove.



LO: to reflect on what impact kindness has on me

SC1: I can look bac over what I have achieved this week and identify how it has made me feel

SC2: I can identify what has ‘filled my bucket’ this week

SC3: I can present this information for others to see

Over the past week, we have had an opportunity to learn about something different, but still very important. Hopefully, you have been thinking about the positives in life and ways you can make other people feel positive.



Look back on all the kind acts that you wanted to complete.

Have you managed to do it?

How did you feel after you completed the act?

How did you feel when you were completing the task?

Do you think this week has changed how you will act in the next few weeks?

What have you done this week to make yourself feel proud?


Present the above like we have been doing our reflective journals. Use plenty of colour, words and pictures!

Finally, draw a picture of a bucket or you holding a bucket. Write all of the things over the past week you have done to fill up your bucket. This may include things to make you feel good directly, or things you have done for others that have made you feel good.
