Welcome to our Maths zone! We will update games and activities regularly, in line with what we are learning in class.
In term 2 we will be continuing to explore 3 digit numbers! We will start to learn how to add and subtract using different mental strategies.
This term we will be learning about:
The composition of 3 digit numbers and how this can be represented.
For example 357
There are 3 hundreds
There are 5 tens
There are 7 ones
300 + 50 + 7 = 357
Exploring the mental methods for addition and subtraction.
Including: 2digit+2digit 3digit+2digit 3digit+3digit
We will learn using number lines, known number facts, partitioning
We may also start to explore written methods like column addition and column subtraction.
Every lesson we will practice our counting!
This term we will be focused on counting forwards and backwards in 10s from any number, for example 4, 14, 24, 34, 44, 54...
We will also continue to secure our 2, 5 and 10 times tables and will start to look at our 3 times tables.
Try practicing these at home- remember to practice in a fun way so it is easier to remember (for example: clapping, jumping, take turns with a partner or counting everyday items like coins)
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 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:
