Marvelous Mathematicians In Year 4

Year 4 have been developing their fluency, reasoning and problem solving in maths, and it's been all about the 6 times tables this week! Children used their reciprocity and resilience skills to create number lines of the 3 and 6 times tables. They were able to find many patterns and connections between them. 

"I can see that every number in the 6 times tables is also in the 3's" Kyla 
"I notice that if you know your 3's all you have to do is double it to know your 6's" Florence. 
"The 3's go odd, even, odd, even, but the 6's are all even" Harry.

Then partners tried hiding numbers to see whether their partner could figure out which was missing. We also played a number of games that required critical thinking and a secure knowledge of fact families to guess the number placed on their head. 

We ended the week with some reasoning problems which got those brains boggling!

"These one make my head hurt!" exclaimed Ruben

Remember, students should be practicing their time tables each day, and can use their online times table rock stars to improve their heat mat!
