Maths

You've found our maths page, where you can find out about our learning and also play some games to improve your maths skills!

 

This term we will develop our skills in understanding shape and fractions. We will be learning to describe the properties of 3D shapes, as well as making them out of spaghetti and marshmallows (could be messy!) Our work on fractions will centre around finding fractions of amounts using division and also on adding and subtracting fractions. All our learning will be supported by practical resources and we will be given lots of opportunities to use our new skills to solve problems and puzzles. 

Later in the term we will return to the four operations and will spend lots of time applying the written methods we have learnt to solving reasoning problems, this is in preparation for our optional SATs, and to get us ready for year 4. 

 

Here are some games you can play at home to help make your adding and subtracting skills even quicker! Click on the pictures. 

             

 

Target Time!

In Year 3 it is very important that we know our 4 and 8 times tables, as this will help us with our multiplcation and division skills! Practise them at home by clicking on the game pictures below.
