This week we have continued learning about how to multiply TU by TU

 

example:

 4  5

x 3 6

 

Start by multiplying the ones column

5x6 = 30

Then the top tens by the ones

40x6 = 240

Add them together - 30+240=270

 

 45

x 36

270

 

Now multiply by the tens column

5x30=150

40x30=1200

Add them together

150+ 1200=1350

 

45

x 36

270

1350

 

NOW add them all together

270+1350=1620

Answer 1620

 

 

If for any reason you someone in year 4 is off for a long period of time such as for an injury or holidays, please could you complete a diary of your activities/events as homework. Thank you

Dream Catchers! Thank-you for bringing in some wonderful materials to make your dream catchers. They look fabulous!

We looked at a Canadian Indian flint bag from the early 1900s. We used cotton buds to paint the bead patterns.

We took Bee-bot for a journey on Route 66.

Year 4 have begun our topic Road Trip USA with an orienteering activity on the school field to locate 14 states and collect tickets from each place. Back in class, we located them on a map. We had a great time!
