Maths

 

Every week, the children compete to earn the most Mathletics points as an individual and for their class.  There are prizes and trophies up for grabs and our teachers are very competitive so come on Year 3!!

 

You could also visit our Year 3 Work Page to see examples of the Maths methods we have worked on previously (addition and subtraction).  Try teaching someone else the method! 

This half term we are working on multiplication methods, so learning times tables are crucial! The children should already know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables really well.  Our year 3 target is to learn the 3, 4 and 8 times tables so get practising!

Visit the Bartley Maths Zone for links to activities and games.

 

Our learning this half term will start with using arrays as a visual representation of multiplication.  We will look at how to use known multiplication facts to predict others (for example, if I know that 2 x 3 is 6, then 4 x 3 is double that = 12).  Look at these images to prepare for what's coming up!
