We are growing in confidence in using arrays to help with our division. We looked at different arrays and were able to write the 4 family calculations that go with them. Two multiplication and 2 division. ie. 5 x 4 = 20, 4 x 5 = 20, 20 / 4 = 5 & 20 / 5 = 4.

As part of our learning to understand what we read, this week we started to work on clarifying what we read. We worked with random partners to work out what an ‘alien’ word in a sentence could be replaced with. For example if our sentence was Mark looked at the gkdoiaful flower. Some of us replaced the ‘alien’ word with wonderful or beautiful. We had to think of the whole sentence and make sure it still made sense.
