**Day 1 Teaching**

Children write the 4x table down the left hand side of a whiteboard. Children now write 8x table on right hand side. Note that in order to multiply a number by 8, you can times number by 4 then double it. Model with different questions.

**Group activities**

-- Multiplying by 8 card game. Ping Pong: multiplying by 8.

**Day 2 Teaching**

Show a blank multiplication grid. Model filling it: I know 6 x 4 is 24 so I write 24 here. Give each child their own blank grid and ask them to complete it.

**Group activities**

-- Complete a range of multiplication target boards.

**Day 3 Teaching**

Display multiplication grid. Children think, pair, share how this helps with division. Revise this: 3 x 6 is 3 lots of 6 are 18. So 18÷ 6 is how many 6s make 18? ☐ x 6 is 18.

**Group activities**

Use the ‘Crack the Code’ in-depth problem-solving investigation below as today’s group activity.

Or, use these activities:

**Day 4 Teaching**

Display blank divisions table. Cover all but first 2 rows. Model division within tables with remainders (÷2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10).
