    • I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Either way, please take a picture of your work and upload it using the Upload Point at the top of the page.

    • Thank you Abraham, Mrs Raja-Khan sent me some photos. Keep doing Mr Inman’s maths and English videos. I’m looking forward to seeing your work tomorrow!

  1. I did bronze, silver, gold and the first six questions of greater depth. I uploaded the photos to you.
    Greater depth:
    G. I notice that when you multiply a number by six, you will get the same answer by multiplying the number by three twice.
    H. I notice that when you multiply a number by nine, you will get the same answer by multiplying the number by three thrice.

    • Fantastic work Nihit! You have spotted the relationship between multiplying by 3, 6 and 9. Is there is similar relationship between multiplying by 2, 4 and 8? Can you give me an example?

      • When you multiply a number by four, it has the same answer as multiplying the number with two twice. An example is that 5 x 4 = 20 is the same as 5 x 2 x 2 = 20. When you multiply a number by 8, it has the same answer as multiplying the number with two four times or four twice. Two examples are 9 x 8 = 72 is the same as
        9 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 72 or 9 x 4 x 4 = 72.

        • Wow! What a fantastic answer! It’s a shame we don’t have 8 fingers in a way. Using base 10 numbers is silly because 100 does not half to 1 (you end up with 12.5) and neither does 10. It would make more sense for 64 to be our hundred!!

          • That is very interesting. I play a game with my mum where you add 1+1 and keep adding the answers of the calculations together. For example 1+1=2, 2+2=4, 4+4=8 and so on and so forth.

    • Serina, you are correct but please do you work in your homework book and upload a picture next time. This means that:
      -your teachers can mark your methods
      -no one else can copy your answers!

      I have deleted your answers so other children can not copy.

    • Have another look at Silver B Aayan. It would have been good to see you drawing the place value counters for Bronze. That was the expectation to show your understanding in more than one way.

      With Gold, you have got the answer right in terms of who was correct, but again your calculation is incorrect – same problem as Silver.

      Have a go at those 2 questions please and then write back on here to let me know where you had gone wrong please.

    • Japji, the question (Bronze) of which you answered here asked you to use place value counters (or draw). Answering on the blog tells me nothing of your understanding of the process. Please complete work in your homework book or on squared paper so that I can see what your methods are.

    • The quality of your work in the last few days has been outstanding Jasmine. The picture show understanding and effort and the method you have used is very effective. It’s fine if someone is working with you but I’m just interested to know so I can consider how hard to make the work.
      Do you have someone at home helping you or are you working independently?

    • The quality and presentation of work provided is excellent but you need to move onto gold at least. You have developed the method by GD stretches your reasoning and understanding and I think you’re capable of this (in fact, I know you are). Just another 10 minutes and this work would have been outstanding.

    • If there’s one thing that makes a teacher happy, it’s when they give feedback to the pupil and the pupil instantly responds positively! Well done you star, an outstanding piece of work.

      In GD, what did you notice about multiplying by 3 and 6?

      • Thank you Mr Inman.😁😁
        Multiplying by 6 is double multiplying by 3 and multiplying by 9 is three times multiplying by 3.

    • I’m not entirely sure what is on the page. I can see that you’ve done fluent in 5 and then some practise questions… Maybe one from Bronze.
      You are expected to complete Gold and then have a go at GD. Push yourself tomorrow please Manvi.

    • I have screen shotted your work. Sana you need to be completing the maths blogs in your maths book and then uploading to us. Your answers are correct here, but it doesn’t really give me any information as to what you did. So I can’t effectively assess your work and give you feedback.

    • Awesome Simin! I love your methods. Are you using a piece of spaghetti as a ruler?! If so, might I suggest that a ruler may be an idea?!

      In GD, what did you notice about multiplying by 3 and 6?

    • Ha ha! You like to comment on the blogs?! This is the 4th one saying that you sent it! Your comment needs to be approved by a teacher. When it’s very busy, we get hundreds of blogs through so sometimes there’s a slight delay on putting it up.

      Nice Gufran! I love the pictures that you have drawn, these display understanding.

    • Nice Kaif. You always put effort into your work! Please make sure you are watching those videos though as you are putting the exchanged numbers in the wrong place (though your answers are correct).

    • Posting maths work directly onto the blog doesn’t really show us whether or not you understand the method. Please could you upload your work done in your homework book so that we can help you to develop your skills and strategies?

    • Esa, I have been through your work and took a screenshot of it.

      You need to complete maths work in your homework book or on squared paper and upload a picture. The only question that gives me any information about your understanding was gold, but even that is very limited.

        • Wow! And you did gold too! That’s very commendable. Well done one completing your work. I have altered the assessment grid and messaged Ms. Philpotts and Mrs Sanders to let them know how well you’ve done! Very impressed!!

    • Excellent work today and I love the cursive handwriting!

      Do you not have your homework book?

      In GD, what did you notice about multiplying by 3 and 6?

    • Lawy. You have got the answers correct but I am concerned that you are not using the strategies from the videos.
      Getting the answers right doesn’t really mean anything when online learning. It’s about developing the strategies. You should have the numbers beneath the answer row to exchange.

    • Excellent! Well done Aaminah.
      I can see that you have clearly understood today’s Maths learning well.
      To improve further, please make sure you use your reasoning skills at all times to explain your answers in detail. I have noticed your reasoning and working out shown for the Gold challenge, which is fantastic!
      You have presented your work nicely, taking pride in your work and challenging yourself.
      Please now complete the English and Science blogs for today’s learning. Thank you!

    • Well done Kai. You have tried really hard with this and you are making great progress. I can see that you have shown the calculations and your working out, presented very neatly.
      To improve, use reasoning to explain your answer. It looks like you have chosen ‘neither’ for a) on Gold. Have another look at it, explaining your reasoning.
      Please now complete English and Science.

    • Well done Hasan! You work is neatly presented and you have shown your methods and calculations.
      Please now have a go at completing the Gold challenge if you have not done so already, using your reasoning skills.
      Once you have completed this, try GD and then move on to today’s English and Science learning. Thank you!

    • Well done Osato! You have presented your work neatly, showing your calculations and methods used, including your reasoning to support your answers.
      Please now complete English and Science. Thank you!

    • Well done for giving this a go Faizan. It would be nice to see your working out and calculations. Please share your work to the upload link.
      Can you explain your reasoning in detail please? Why is the answer 1000? How do you know this and which calculation/method did you use?

    • Well done Samik. You have clearly shown your understanding of multiplying 3 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers.
      For Gold, please make sure you explain how you calculated this and which methods you used to get your answer.
      For example:
      Ron and Teddy are both correct. I know this because…
      The method I used was…
      Which skills did you use and how have you improved your Maths work today?

    • Thank you Mosaver!
      Using your reasoning skills, explain why you think that both Ron and Teddy are correct? Which skills did you use when calculating this?
      Please share something you have learnt from today’s Maths learning and complete English and Science blogs.

    • Thank you Safa.
      You have shown great understanding of today’s Maths work and have presented it beautifully.
      Why are both Ron and Teddy correct? Explain your answer using reasoning.
      Please share something you have learnt from today’s learning.

    • Well done Maryam. You have clearly shown your understanding of multiplying 3 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers.
      You could improve by using reasoning to explain why they are both right.
      Example:
      I know this because…

      • 5×245=1225
        Ron said the answer will be greater because 5×200=1000 which is right.
        Teddy did 5×5=25 and said the last number would be 5 and he was right to.
        They are both correct because they had the correct statements.
