Your learning activity for today is to draw bar models to represent the 5x table. You can draw these in order e.g. 1 group of , 2 groups of  etc. or out of order e.g. 3 groups of , 5 groups of 5 etc. but you should do this all the way up to 12 groups of 5.

Each short bar (part) should have the same amount in them to show the equal groups. The long bar shows the total amount of all the short bars added together.This shows the relationship between multiplication and repeated addition.

For each bar model, write the repeated addition that the bar model represents e.g. 1 group of 5 is 5, 2 groups of 5 is 5+5=10, 3 groups of 5 is 5+5+5=15. Counting in 5s can help you find the total quickly.

 This is similar to Wednesday's lesson last week but using the 5x table instead of 2s. Look at the picture from that lesson to help you set out the bar models if you forgot.
