Maths – Multiplication

Lesson 18 – Multiplication

LO: To assemble a multiplication square

SC1. I can examine a problem and look for a number pattern.

SC2 I can use my existing times tables knowledge.

SC3. I can justify my strategy for solving the multiplication square problem.

Over the last few weeks we have been using our times tables skills a lot. We have used them to help create arrays and multiplication grids. Our skills have helped us solve 2-digit problems and they have been used as part of a more formal written method.

Today, as a bit of fun and as a test of your times tables knowledge I want you to solve the Multiplication Square Jigsaw Problem:

IMPORTANT NOTE:

When solving this puzzle you must NOT use the multiplication square you may have been using over the last few weeks.

 

You can find the puzzle by either following this link and then moving the pieces about using the online resource:

https://nrich.maths.org/5573/index

OR

You can print the resource out, cut the parts of the square out and then solve. This resource is attached below.

 

AIM OF THE TASK

  • Challenge your times tables knowledge.
  • Make you consider how to use number patterns to help solve a problem.
  • What is the best strategy? Can you justify the use of this strategy?·    

I would like you to solve the jigsaw and send me an image of the completed puzzle. I would also like you to write an explanation of how you managed to solve the problem. What were your strategies? Perhaps you could use these prompts to help you:

  • How are the numbers in the multiplication square organised?
  • What is the smallest number in the square? Where does that go? Can you find the piece with it on?
  • How about the largest number? Where should that be placed on the grid?
  • What patterns do you notice in the pieces you have put in? Can you continue the patterns and therefore fit some more pieces in?

GOOD LUCK!

English –  Using report features

 

LO: To use the correct features when writing a report

SC1) I can discuss the features of a report

SC2) I can conduct an experiment

SC3) I can write a report using the appropriate features

 

Today we are going to be using the features we learned yesterday to write our very own report. Before we get started, recap the features of a report. If you have forgotten, have a quick look at your notes from yesterday and discuss with an adult.

For this afternoon’s lesson, we are going to conduct an experiment and write a report. Make sure you include the four features when writing your report.

When we write conduct our experiment and write our report we do it in the following order:

aim -> apparatus -> method -> experiment -> findings

As you can see, we write part of the report and conduct the experiment after you have written the method.

Watch the video below about the experiment you are going to conduct:

 

 

Use the video to write a report on the experiment. Remember:

aim -> apparatus -> method -> experiment -> findings

Experience – Parts of plants

 

LO: To be able to name the parts of a plant and explain their jobs

SC1) I can label the parts of a plant

SC2) I can explain what the purpose of each part of a plant

SC3) I can find examples of plants in my local area and discuss their parts

 

Today we are going to be looking at the different parts of plants and their functions. To start off with, look at the picture on the PowerPoint and discuss with someone what you see. You could try to name the plants you see or the parts of the plants.

Task 1 – Write in your journals the different parts of a plant and their purpose. If writing is too difficult, have a discussion with an adult.

Task 2 – Go for a walk in your local area, look for examples of plants and name their parts.
