    Are you sure these are suitable for grade 1-3? I just looked at the multiplication questions and my high flyers would struggle and we're in 3/4!

      Hi there Lucy, thank you for you comment. I take your point... I think Years 1 and 2 students would definitely find many of these multiplication questions too challenging. I will alter the grade allocation of the resource in light of this. I'm thinking that perhaps Years 3 and 4 students could draw on some alternate strategies, such as repeated addition or partitioning according to place value, to complete some of the harder multiplication sums. Thank you again for your feedback, it is much appreciated! Have a wonderful day.
