Year 2 children enjoyed an Nrich investigation ‘Catrina’s Cards’ which helped them to consolidate their learning in multiplication so far.
The children listened to the information about Catrina’s collection of football cards and represented this by drawing on their whiteboards. This helped them to work out how many she had altogether. The children then had the opportunity to look at each other’s representations; we noticed that they all have different strategies!
We also looked at the example solutions on the Nrich website to see how children in other schools tackled the investigation.
