Numeracy Live Lesson 5 - KS1 / First Level

In this lesson, Rebecca Keatley and Mr Smith are down on the farm, learning about equal and unequal groups, multiplication and arrays.

This is part of a series of weekly Live Lessons for Autumn 2020, designed to support children in catching up on literacy and numeracy as they return to school after lockdown.

Each week, we published two lessons, one for KS1/First Level and one for KS2/First & Second Level. The lessons have been designed for use in the classroom, but are also suitable to be used at home should schools be closed again.

Please note that this lesson was published in 2020 and we are no longer reviewing emails and messages from schools for inclusion in the lesson or on the page.

Curriculum Links

Pupils will be encouraged to:

  • calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division within the multiplication tables and write them using the multiplication (×), division (÷) and equals (=) signs
  • show that multiplication of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and division of one number by another cannot
  • solve problems involving multiplication and division, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods, and multiplication and division facts, including problems in contexts
