Long multiplication in Year 5

This week, Year 5 have been learning to multiply by a 2-digit number. To practice this tricky skill, they played a game in which they multiplied numbers using the digits 2, 3, 4 and 5 to make an answer as close to 1,000 as possible. Competition was fierce and in the first round, two girls came very close by reaching an answer of 990. The children adapted the rules and before long, several successful pairs hit their target. Great work!
