Welcome to our Maths zone! We will update games and activities regularly, in line with what we are learning in class.
In term 4 we will be continuing to learn our 2, 4 and 8 times tables and finding the relationships between them. We will also explore division and what to do if something doesn't divide perfectly leaving us with remainders.
This term we are also going to be moving onto shape. We will be recapping our learning from year 2 about 2D and 3D shapes before exploring the new year 3 learning.
Year 2 recap:
I can identify and describe the properties 2D shapes, including lines of symmetry
I can identify and describe the properties of 3D shapes (number of edges, vertices and faces)
I can spot 2D shapes on the surface of 3D shapes (eg a circle on a cylinder)
I can compare and sort common 2D and 3D shapes
Year 3 learning:
I can draw 2D shapes and make 3D shapes
I can recognise 3D shapes in different orientations
I can recognise angles as a property of shape and know that angles are a description of a turn
I can spot right angles and spot when an angle is greater than or less than a right angle
I can identify perpendicular (meet at a right angle) or parallel lines (lines that will never meet)
Maybe you could go out on a shape hunt with your family! What shapes can you see? Can you name them? What properties do they have? How many sides? How many faces? how many vertices (corners)? Does it have any lines of symmetry? Does it have parallel or perpendicular lines? Can you spot any right angles?
Could you create your own creation using 3D shapes or a drawing using different 2D shapes? Remember to think carefully about the shapes and their properties.
Here are some links to some maths games to help us to remember our maths facts.
This game is good for improving quick recall of our number bonds, doubles/halves and times table facts.
This game another good for improving quick recall of different maths skills (choose Level 2 or Level 3 and challenge yourself to beat your scores)
Keep practising those times tables!
Remember to go onto Times Table Rock Stars as often as you can to improve your rock status at:
You can also practise your maths skills on Math Shed. This is not only for times tables but also mental addition and subtraction and much more. Visit:
Each week the school's highest scoring players for both scores are announced in our whole school celebration assembly. The results are updated weekly and displayed by the school office.
Login information for both Times Table Rock Stars and Maths Shed is in your child's home learning book. Please ask us if you have misplaced your username and passwords.
