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.
The maths focus this term will continue to be on learning times tables. The children will be tested regularly in this area so please make sure they spend time at home learning them off by heart.
Focus of maths lessons will be on the following:
Time Tables Rockstars
Parents can support rapid recall of multiplication facts 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, or if you need another copy of the login details.
