Welcome toSt Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy


Multiplication and division 



Multiply, divide, array, equal, double, group, sharing. 


This term we begin our new unit of multiplication and division. Last term we learnt our 5 and 10 times tables and this term we will learn how to apply them plus learn our 2 times tables. We will also focus on making equal groups and adding equal groups. For example, 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 8. We will then introduce arrays. An array in maths is an arrangement of objects, numbers or pictures in columns or rows. The purpose of an array is to help children understand multiplication and division. Towards the end of the unit we will look at making doubles, making equal groups and sharing equally. 



Learning our 2s, 5s and 10s
