The children of Class 2 have been learning times tables with Ida Spider, the Magic Number Magician and Class teacher Monique Anderson. Every evening Ida Spider weaves into her web a new times table that, in turn, creates a beautiful pattern. Sometimes it is a star and sometimes it is simply a straight line. The children have been singing, walking, jumping, weaving and drawing their times tables. This all helps to imbue an abstract idea with feeling and movement, and an innate understanding that these tables all have very different qualities to one another.
