## Lesson details

### Key learning points

1. If 4 times 5 is 20 then 4 times 6 is four more than 20
2. If you know 5 times a number you can add the number again to work out 6 times the number
3. 5 times a number and 6 times a number are adjacent multiples

### Common misconception

Lack of fluency in 6 times tables and not understanding the divisibility rules or the problems.

To clearly model highlighting key words of worded problems to understand the problem and the operation required for the calculation. Continue to use language stems such as 'If I know...' 'Then I know...,' to support mathematical thinking.
