### Planning and Activities

**Day 1 Teaching**Revise the 4 times table, giving multiplication facts and asking children to write matching divisions. Then double the products to generate the 8 times table. Revise division facts here as well.

**Group Activities**

Multiply by 4 and by 8 to revise the times table facts.

**Day 2 Teaching** Remind children how we used the 4 times table to generate the 8 times table. Show how we can use the 3 times table to generate the 6 times table. Revise division facts in both tables.

**Group Activities**

Multiply by 3 and use this to multiply by 6.

**Day 3 Teaching** Launch ITP Function Blocks. Use this to generate division by 3. Can children work out the function? Repeat with the functions ÷ 4, ÷ 5, ÷ 6 and ÷ 8.

**Group Activities**

Use the in-depth problem-solving investigation ‘Function Machines’ from NRICH as today’s group activity. Or, use these activities:

Find hidden functions to multiply and divide by 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8.
