It is VERY important that you are staying safe when you are using the internet. If you see something that upsets you or you know is wrong, you MUST tell an adult immediately! Please remember that you must always have an adult in the room with you when you are using the internet and you should never, ever go on the internet in your bedroom if you are alone!!!

What is my number?

Today we are going to continue learning about the X sign. Yesterday's lesson was abit tricky so we are going to revisit repeated addition and multiplication today. 

 

Task 1

Today I would like you to copy out these calculations carefully onto a piece of paper:

5 X 4          9 X 2          3 X 2          4 X 10          7 X 2         

7 X 5          10 X 1          4 X 5

2 + 2 + 2           

10 + 10 + 10 + 10       

4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 

5 + 5 + 5 + 5         

2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2

1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1         

2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2         

5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5

Cut out each calculation then match up the repeated additions with the matching multiplications like this:

Now write your own repeated addition and multiplication calculation and match them up in the same way. If you have glue, please stick them into your book.
