Multiplication Squares!

In the 2×2 multiplication square below, the boxes at the end of each row and the foot of each column give the result of multiplying the two numbers in that row or column e.g. 7 x 5 = 35 or 4 x 5 = 20.

The 3×3 multiplication square below works in the same way. The boxes at the end of each row and the foot of each column give the result of multiplying the three numbers in that row or column.

Can you find the missing numbers?

The numbers 1−9 may be used once and once only.

Challenge – Is there more than one possible set of answers for each row or column?

Year 5 & 6 Design a Theme Park

If you have ever been to a theme park you will know how much fun they can be. If you haven’t been yet, watch this video to get a sense of what is on offer 🙂

We want you to design a theme park. Watch this presentation to find out what you need to do.

These are the design sheets you will need or you can work on a sheet or plain paper if you prefer.

Here are some designs created by children inspire you. We are looking forward to seeing what marvellous creations you come up with. Maybe you could even build a model of your park! 🙂
