This week in maths the year 6 children have been having a little look at a new method for multiplying numbers. As Highfield school is part of the Aspire Trust, the classes have been using materials provided by Cantell school to support children with transitioning to secondary school. The children have really enjoyed making links between grid method and column method and have worked really hard on solving the infinikey challenges! Once the children had practiced solving a range a grid method multiplication problems (which involved decimals too!), they then looked at explaining their understanding by making posters and stop motion videos to explain their new understanding! We finished off the week with some tricky problem solving activities to finish off a great week of maths!
