Maths – Multiplication

Lesson 6 - 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. 3x14=
  2. 4x13=
  3. 6x13=
  4. 8x12=
  5. 2x19=

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.

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


Break/Snack Time


English – Poetry part 1 – Onomatopoeia (30 mins)


LO: To understand poetic techniques and structure

SC1) I can explain what onomatopoeia is

SC2) I can list words which use onomatopoeia

SC3) I can write a short poem using free verse

SC4) I can check my poem using the rules checklist


Today we are going to be learning about another writing technique you will be using in your poems. This is Onomatopoeia. This is how you say the word On-O-Mat-O-Pee-A. Look at the Powerpoint below on Onomatopoeia.


Task 1 – Listen to the sounds and write the words which contain onomatopoeia.

Task 2 – Open your window and go outside. Come up with some more words which contain onomatopoeia.


Poem Structure (30 mins)

Before writing our poems tomorrow, we will need to recap what structures we can use to write our poem. We have done poetry this year already so we will already have an idea about how to write poems.


When we write our poems tomorrow, we will be using “freeverse”. Click the link below to watch the video on freeverse.


This is where we do not have any rhyming words or particular rules, but is still written as a poem. Try to remember some of the rules we talked about in our previous poetry experience. Set a timer for 2 minutes.


Here are some of the rules we are going to use:


  • Each line start with a capital letter
  • There is punctuation at the end of each line. This will usually be a comma or a full stop
  • Our poems will usually be describing something
  • Each line is short and a new line is taken for each new thing said


The last bullet point is very important. When we write poems, the lines are short. You must think carefully if you need to take a new line or not.


Structure task – Choose anything you want and write a short free verse poem about it. Here is one that I have written about the grass:



The grass outside,

Is a deep, dark green.

If you look very closely,

It’s somebody’s home.

We use it to play on,

Football, tag and picnics.

Grass is a wonderful deep, dark thing.


After you have written your poem, you will need to look at our rules and use it as a checklist. Do you have all of the rules in your poem?

If you have time, you could draw a picture to go with your poem using our art techniques!





Art – Media

LO: To experiment with different media and decide which is the most effective

SC1) I can practise using different media

SC1) I can judge the effectiveness of different media

SC3) I can choose my favourite media and justify why


Today we are going to be looking at different ways you can create your landscape. Using what you have learned in previous lessons, we would like you to look out of your window and draw a landscape It may be easier for you to take a photo and use that to draw your landscape.  Below are some different ways you can change the way you landscape will look.

Using pencil


This method uses regular pencil to draw your landscape. If you have different types of lead pencils (we have done some of this in class using HB, 3H and 6B) you could use these too.

  • Remember your shading and using tone to bring your picture to life
  • Try pressing hard and pressing soft for different effects

Colouring pencils

Use colouring pencils add some colour to your landscape. If you choose to do this, you can still add shade and tone using the pencils

  • Try layering colours – adding colours on top of another. This will give you different effects.
  • Use different pressures again. Try pressing soft and harder.
  • It is important not to press hard with colour the whole time




Using crayons can give a beautiful effect

  • Experiment by pressing soft to give a faint line, or hard to give a bold line.
  • Try using a wash of paint or ink over the top of a section to give a different effect.

Chalk pastels

We have already used chalk pastels this year. Using some of the techniques we have learned and improve these skills!




Use paint to bring your picture to life!

  • Try using different amounts of paint to different sections
  • Mix colours carefully to make new colours



(1hr30) Task 1 – Take a picture out of your window and draw a landscape. Choose one of the above to add to your landscape. As we have a longer afternoon with this, we would like you to try and practise with different media. If possible, we would like you to draw 3 and practise using 3 types of the above.


(15 mins) Task 2 – We would like you to choose which media you are going to use for your final piece tomorrow and explain why you have chosen this.
