Over the last few weeks, Year 6 have been developing lots of positive learning attitudes. Today, we looked at using formal methods for multiplication. Holly Class showed lots of resilience to get themselves out of the learning pit. We talked about the importance of ‘the struggle’ to help with learning. They also showed great collaboration skills to work together and work out where they had gone wrong, learning from their mistakes. Here is an example of the struggle and using purple pen to show progress.
Keep it up Holly Class – excellent attitudes and effort!
Please also see the following links for videos, which we have used in class, for extra support with short and long multiplication.
