At St Mary's we follow Inspire Maths. Inspire is a whole school primary maths programme that provides everything to support a mastery approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics! The programme is based from Singapore's leading maths series.
In Year 3, children will be challenged daily with activities and questions within maths lessons. Children will build on the skills they learnt in KS1 to help unpick and solve the trickier problems. Within these lessons, children will access extension and reasoning questions that will extend their learning that little bit further!
Our first topic in Year 3 will be Place Value. We will be counting from 0 in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100 and finding 10 or 100 more or less than a given number. We will even be able to recognise the place value of each digit in a three-digit number (hundreds, tens, ones) and compare and order numbers up to 1000. Within this topic we will be using skills such as estimation and representing numbers in different ways!
Quick links and Times Tables!
Below I have added some useful links to support your child at home! Knowing your Times Tables is a very important thing! We will do a lot of work on these in Year 3 and whenever we have a spare moment, whether this is lining up for dinner or out on the playground we will use it!
