Learning Without Limits
In Year 3 this year, there is a big emphasis on developing independent skills, particularly in maths where children are able to learn at a pace that suits their ability. We offer choices of tasks within lessons and children make decisions about how much challenge they can attempt.
Feedback about the learning taking place is central to this approach.
This sense of control builds intrinsic motivation to approach new learning in a very powerful way.
Please do come and speak to Mrs White if you would like to know more about how we teach Maths in Fir Class.
Place Value & Number
In Year 3, your child will be working with numbers within 1000.
They will focus on the following areas:
A big part of maths is fluency. If a child is able to recall number facts (such as times tables and number bonds), they will be much quicker and more confident and will make progress faster.
Parents can support this by encouraging children to practice number facts daily.
Don't forget to help your child to log on to TT Rockstars so they can get quicker at Times Tables facts recall. Please contact Mrs White if you are having trouble login on.
