Maths – Multiplication

Lesson 7 – Multiplication

LO: To exchange when using arrays to solve multiplication problems.

SC1. I can draw a multiplication array.

SC2. I can discuss why we need to exchange.

SC3. I can exchange when solving problems.

During today’s lesson you may want to pause the video to give yourself time to explain your answers to your parents or to write an answer down.



Today, I would like you to use your multiplication arrays to solve:

  1. 2x17=
  2. 3x17=
  3. 2x18=
  4. 3x18=
  5. 3x15=
  6. 5x15=


Remember that presentation is very important. You must use a ruler to draw the multiplication grid for your arrays. You must carefully count the number of counters in your grid, circling the counters which you want to exchange. A good idea is to always double check and you can even make a small mark on each one to show you have double checked. Give yourself plenty of room and don’t try to solve too many problems on one page.

Challenge Question

Solve this problem. How is it different to the previous problems?

  1. 13x9=

Answers will be published at 5pm. Please see below for attachment.

English – Poem

LO: To write using my knowledge of poetry

SC1) I can use onomatopoeia and alliteration effectively

SC2) I can write a poem about a landscape

SC3) I can check my work after completion


It is now time to create our poems using what we have learned this week. We will be creating our poem using the following:


  • Alliteration
  • Onomatopoeia
  • Free verse


  • Capital letters at the start of each sentence
  • Punctuation
  • Describing something
  • Each line is not too long


Your task is to look out of your window and write a poem about the landscape. Again, this may be easier to take a photo and use this to write your poem. Below is an example of a poem:


My Garden

Bees buzz,

Slimy snails,

Tiny creatures playing in the flowers.

The garden is alive with insects everywhere.


Up in the sky,

Feathers flitting freely.

I hear the sounds of leaves swishing in the wind.


My garden is a perfect playground,

For any member of the animal kingdom.

Buzzy beez,

Slimy snails,

All are welcome to this place.


Once you have written your poem, it is important to check to make sure you have all of the above. If you have spare time, you could edit and revise your poem to improve on what you have written. I look forward to reading your poems!




Art – Drawing a landscape (1hr15)


LO: To create a landscape using a medium of my choice

SC1) I can use my knowledge of Art to sketch a landscape

SC2) I can use my chosen medium effectively

SC3) I can use shading, tone and light to add depth to my picture

SC4) I can add evaluate my work


It’s now time to draw a landscape to go alongside your poems. If possible, can you draw these under your poems or find a way to send these together. Again, you will need the same view or picture that you used for when you wrote your poems. Yesterday, we chose our favourite type of media that you will be using to create your landscape. You need to include all of the skills we have learned so far. Create perspective in your picture to give it depth. Start by sketching the outline of your landscape, then begin to add the finer details. After you have done this, you will then bring your picture to life using your chosen medium.


This task may be tricky, but don’t give up! If you need to start again that is ok. All artist will draw their piece many times before they are happy with it. Keep a record of all of your learning in your journal. Remember to focus on the detail when adding your colour. Use your knowledge of tone and shading to add depth to your picture. Also think about the shadows in the piece.


Evaluate (30 mins)


After you have completed your task, it is important to evaluate your work. As we have done in the past in our reflective journals, ask yourself the following questions:

What did I achieve?

Did I meet the requirements of the task?

How well did I do it?

What were the successes?

What did other people say was particularly good? Was it the same as what I thought?

What could I have done better?

How could I have done it better?

What do I need to do to help me do it better next time?


Record these questions in your journal in any way you like. This could be a mindmap or sentences. Remember to use colour!!
