MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION: CPD SESSION 2 – NOW ONLINE

This training is intended to be delivered in the Spring Term (if your

school has followed the programme from the start of the Autumn Term).

It largely focuses on the KS2 unit (which is Unit 3 × and ÷).

Although the focus is on Y5/Y6 × and ÷ work… it is important that all Y1-6 staff attend the session.

Everyone in the school needs to understand:

[a] the attainment expected of Y6 children

[b] their role in ensuring the approaches used in earlier years are consistent with the lessons provided by Effective Maths.

Children knowing 9 × 4 = 36 … is a great start… but: it is the start.

9 × 4 = 36 is also:

5 × 4 + 4 × 4

9 × 2 × 2

10 × 4 – 4

This type of understanding is reflected in this CPD – but aimed at a Y6 level - so that all teaches can see why going deeper into the basic fact, for example, 9 × 4 = 36 … is essential.

---------------------------------------------------

Note that for KS1 the Spring Term it is Unit 2 of × and ÷.

Y2 do × and ÷ work; Y1 largely do work on + and –.

(They have just learnt to add numbers from 1-5 to ten; they now learn related facts. (10 + 1 = 11; 9 + 2 = 11 etc)
