In Autumn half term, we looked at the place value of numbers, using denes, place value counters and numicon to support our learning and help understanding as we focussed on 4-digit numbers.
Year 4 will also be sitting a National Multiplication Check next June. They will be tested on all their multiplication facts up to 12 x 12. This will be on an ipad. Please practise these several times a week.
Multiplication and Division
We are currently looking at using what we know about multiplication to multiply a 2-digit or 3-digit number by a 1-digit number. We are using our knowledge of multiplying by 10 and 100 from earlier in the unit to help us.
eg. 50 x 4 = 200
5 x 4 = 20
20 x 10 = 200
600 x 5 =
6 x 5 = 30
30 x 100 = 3,000
We are setting our calculations (eg. 56 x 4) in a grid to help us.
