 This term we are continuing to develop our multiplication and division skills. We will be learning our 6,7,9, 11 and 12 times tables. Where we will be applying our knowledge to a range of different contexts and using a wide range of representations. We will also learn how to use the bus stop method for division and begin to use the formal method of multiplication.
