Year 3 Four Times-Table: Get Your Bananas
Join Maths expert, Dave Godfrey, as he shares a lesson that helps children develop a deep understanding of the 4 times-table in a story context and includes a host of activities that will help children begin to learn the facts off by heart. 'There are several keys to learning and remembering times tables that I explore in the short teacher video that accompanies this lesson. If children are going to remember 4 x 6 = 24, they need to understand what it means, be able to put it into a story context and spot any patterns (e.g. 4 x 6 is double 4 x 3 etc.) In this lesson, I’ve tried to keep a coherent lesson modelling several activities that I’ve used to help children master a particular times-table.'
