Maths

Welcome to our Maths zone! We will update games and activities regularly, in line with what we are learning in class.

 

 

In term 1 we will be building on our understanding of place value as we explore 3 digit numbers!

 

We will start the term by looking at the smallest 3 digit number, 100. We will build on our understanding from year 2 as we explore different ways of making 100:

  • Using whole tens (eg 70 + 30)
  • 2 digit numbers + 1 digit numbers (eg 97 + 3)
  • 2 digit numbers + 2 digit numbers (eg 77 + 23)

 

We will then start to explore other 3 digit numbers and how they can be made using the same steps as above.

Over the term we will gain an understanding of hundreds tens and ones.

For example 357

There are 3 hundreds

There are 5 tens 

There are 7 ones

300 + 50 + 7 = 357

 

We will be learning and exploring maths in many different ways, for example: using bar models, part-part-whole models and real life problem solving

In lots of our maths learning we will be using different resources to improve our understanding like dienes and number squares.

 

Counting

Every lesson we will practice our counting!

This term we will be focused on counting in 20s and 50s. We have already started to make links to our 2 and 5 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)

 

Useful Websites

During our maths lessons we will be making sure we learn any learning that we missed at the end of year 2. 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)

This game is working on our place value understanding.

(To recap year 2 learning play numbers to 99. To continue with year 3 learning play numbers to 999)

Keep practising those times tables!

Remember to go onto Times Table Rock Stars as often as you can to improve your rock status at:

In class we will be continuing to work on our 2, 5 and 10 times tables to ensure we can rapidly recall both multiplication and division facts. 

 

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:

https://play.edshed.co/loginmaths

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.
