The overview for our learning this week is below:

I can solve multiplying and dividing problems using my knowledge of the 5 and 10 times tables. I can divide larger numbers and explain my thinking. 

Maths: I can write a good research question. I can gather information on my question and record my answer in a frequency table. I can use tallies correctly. I understand why we use grouped data for larger data sets. I can record my findings using grouped data in a frequency table.
