Maths – Multiplication

Lesson 9 – Multiplication

LO: To exchange when using multiplication arrays.

SC1. I can create an array.

SC2. I can consider how to exchange between columns.

SC3. I can solve number problems.

Yesterday, we began to look at how to solve larger number problems. The problems we looked at yesterday didn’t involve exchanging between columns but in today s lesson we will be exchanging from the 1s column to the 10s.



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

  1. 3x27=
  2. 2x29=
  3. 2x39=
  4. 2x36=
  5. 3x25=

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 to solve too many problems on one page.

Challenge Question

True or False?

5 x 30 = 50 x 3

Prove it!

The answers to the questions can be found by opening an attachment found below.


Break/Snack Time


English – formal and informal letters

LO: to recall the difference between formal and informal letters

SC1: I can explain what formal and informal mean

SC2: I can pick out formal and informal phrases

SC3: I can discuss the differences between formal and informal letters


Today we are going to look a bit more closely at different types of letters. We are going to look at formal letters and informal letters. What do you think informal and formal mean? Have a discussion with an adult. If you are still not sure look up the meanings in a dictionary.


formal – if something is formal, it is usually talking about something official and important

informal – if something is informal, it is usually more relaxed and friendly


Look at the Powerpoint below for examples of informal and formal language.


Have a look at the example letters from yesterday (attached below) and answer the following questions:

Which is informal and which formal?

How do you know? 


Now have a look at the phrases I have given you. Can you sort them putting the correct phrases under the headings ‘formal’ and ‘informal’? You can do this in the same way as yesterday with formal on one side of the page and informal on the other side of the page.


At the end of this week, we will be writing our very own informal letters to somebody to make them smile. We would like you to practise writing your very own informal letter to anyone / anything you want. You could write a letter to your mum, dad, brother, dog or fish!


Task 1 – Sort example letters into formal and informal letters

Task 2 – Sort phrases into formal and informal phrases

Task 3 – Practise writing your own letter





LO: to understand that helping others wellbeing also has a positive impact on my own wellbeing

SC1: I can recall what wellbeing means

SC2: I can list things I can do to make others feel good

SC3: I can choose and justify the 5 acts I will be carrying out


Your wellbeing is your general health and happiness. We do things in our lives to make us healthy and happy such as exercise and general activities. We often think about keeping our body happy but it is also important to keep out mind happy too. One way of ‘filling your bucket’ is by doing nice things for other people. Doing nice things for others also makes ourselves feel good so everybody wins!!


We want you to think of five kind acts they can do over the next few days. Perhaps you will be more helpful at home, be kind to a sibling or pet or find a way to help others in need.


We would like you to record ideas in your journal of different acts you could carry out that would fill someone else’s bucket. Again, this should be in reflective journal style with colour and lovely presentation. You can record your ideas in any way you wish e.g. mindmap, bullet points etc. Have a look at my example at the bottom of the page.


After you have come up with a list of ideas, we would like you to choose your top 5 with a reason for each one.
