This week the children in Year 3 have been learning how to multiply a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number. The children first learnt how to use their known facts so they could work out calculation such as 30 x 5 by using their known fact 3 x 5 = 15. They realised very quickly that they need to use their known fact and then multiply the answer by 10.
The children then used place value charts to help them multiply 2-digit numbers by a 1-digit number and they were all able to write both the repeated addition and multiplication calculation. We then moved on the short multiplication method. The children had to use their known facts to work out the calculations and all did a super job!
