In Year 3, our little mathematicians become increasingly fluent with whole numbers in the four operations. The children are able to develop their understanding of written and mental methods to help them solve a variety of problems in different contexts.
Year 3's practise their multiplication skills by enjoying daily Times Table Rockstars to their favourite beats. This is in preparation for the end of Year 4 online multiplication tables check (beginning 2019/20), while also developing a love of mental arithmetic and music.
Children are encouraged to support their learning with a range of manipulatives to enhance their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. In addition to this, children are constantly and consistently exposed to a range of mathematical vocabulary and are encouraged to use this throughout their maths learning.
