KS1 Multiply Session

Parent and carers in key stage one were invited into school for another of our ‘multiply’ maths sessions. During the session, parents and carers developed their strategies for numeracy. We looked at strategies we use for addition and subtraction across key stage one and the concrete objects we use to support the learning. The children then joined the session to take part in an activity where they had to make fruit kebabs with a total of 30. We thought of ways to deepen our learning, thinking and problem solving in mathematics.

During the activity each piece of fruit had a different value and they had to work together to add, subtract, multiply and divide to create the total of 30. We had lots of fun and at the end the children got to eat their creations. The children even used the skills they had been taught in DT to cut the fruit using the bridge and claw technique.

Keep an eye out for the next sessions available in the summer term…
