Year 5

Mysterious Multiplying Jar

In Year 5 this week we have used story books to inspire our numeracy and literacy work. We read the story Anno's Mysterious Multiplying Jar by Masaichiro Anno and then worked in groups to investigate how many jars are on the magical island. We used lots of different physical resources to represent the objects in the story and made links to our own knowledge of multiplication. For English we used the masterful Anthony Browne's Shape Game as a starting point for writing our own story.
