Multiplication as repeated addition:
Understand that multiplication is a way of doing repeated additions, e.g. 4 x 5 is the same as 5 + 5 + 5 + 5
Counting in steps:
Count confidently in twos, , threes, fours fives and tens: 3, 6, 9, 12, etc.
Finger nines:
Perform multiplications involving 9 using fingermethod
Times tables:
Know the 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x and 10x tables off by heart
Division as inverse of multiplication:
Understand that division is the reverse of multiplication, so that we read 24 ÷ 6 as how many sixes in twentyfour or ? x 6 = 24
The grid method:
Use the grid method to find an answer to larger multiplications, e.g. 4 x 27 or 13 x 8
Divisions with remainders:
Perform divisions with remainders, e.g. 38 ÷ 4
Division beyond tables:
Perform divisions with remainders, e.g. 38 ÷ 4
Number Concepts: Count in different ways, understand how numbers work, become fluent in the ways of numbers
Adding and Subtracting: Mentally add or subtract numbers with confidence and develop written ways of adding and subtracting larger numbers or more of them!
Multiplying and Dividing: Know the times tables and use these to perform mental multiplication and divisions; develop written methods for multiplication and division.
