In Maths Year 2 are learning about multiplication and repeated addition with the help of Mrs Knitter.
Mrs Knitter is the greatest knitter in England! As well as knitting, Mrs Knitter also loves animals. She has a house full of interesting pets to keep her company including dogs, hares, ducks, spiders and bats to name but a few.
Even though she loves all of her animals, something is upsetting her…………..
Her house is ALWAYS muddy! She decides to knit each animal socks to save her carpet from muddy footprints. But, each of Mrs Knitter’s animals have different amounts of legs.
We have been helping Mrs Knitter work out how many legs each group of animals have in total by drawing arrays and using repeated addition.
