Good morning Mars Class!

Here are the lessons for today:

Maths warm up. Solve problems, including missing number problems, involving multiplication and division. Give a grown up a secret number of counters, it can be any number as long as it is in the three times table. Watch as the grown up counts the total number of objects to find how many there are. Then ask the grown up to place them in an array and  write as many number sentences for the array as they can. Check their number sentences are correct. See example below.
