Tuesday maths challenge for Year One!

Morning Year One, I would like you to try a challenge for me.

Watch this video first and I recommend you watch it twice.The video talks about arrays which is a method of multiplication.


I shall be sending work via parentmail for you to have a go at. Don’t worry if you find it challenging, just persevere.

Parents – An array is a way of displaying objects pictorially in rows and columns for multiplication. For example,

So, I have 3 bags of cupcakes (a row) and 4 cupcakes in each (a column) which represented as a the number sentence 3 x 4 = . It can also be 4×3.

I will send via parentmail some practice sheets but as I said, this is just to introduce arrays to the children. Have a go.
