I'm being observed next week and need ti pull one out of the bag (don't we all...!!!!) I was going to introduce TUx U to my Y2s. We've done multiplication using a number line so their next steps for the HA is to move onto this. I thought A4L - revision of multiplication strategies Present the sum 17 x 4 = ___ what strategy could you use? Establish that number line is not practical for this calculation due to the number of jumps it would need. Teach/model/practise skills (partitioning) Children to practise skill independently. Not all singing all dancing but the focus is progress. Does that sound decent? Could anyone suggest any good activities or intro activities? Many thanks!!!
