Wednesday 6th January

Building on our work with the 6 times table,  we are going to make further links between the tables and division facts. We will explore how you can work out 6 X 5 if we know that 5 X 5 is 25.

e.g. 6 X 5 is the same as 5 X 5 added to 1 X 5

6 X 5 is therefore 25 + 5 which is 30


We will also look at making links with the division facts which are related to our times table knowledge.

e.g. 6 X 7 = 42 so we can work out that 42 divided by 7 is 6.


 We can recap using the 3 times table to work out our 6 times table.

E.g. if we know that 3 X 7 is 21, then we can work out that 6 X 7 is double 3 X 7 and work out that it's 42.


You might want to write out your 6 times table to help you explain your work.


The final piece of work is how we can use our 6 times table to work out larger number problems. 


E.g. if we know that 6 X 8 is 48 then we can use that to work out 60 X 8 is 480.
