We’ve made a great start in year 3 to Maths this year. We have consolidated our knowledge of the place value of 2-digit numbers and we are now able to identify the value of 3-digit numbers. We have been using lots of base 10 apparatus to help us and we have now progressed onto using this knowledge to help us add hundreds, tens and units to 3-digit numbers up to 1000.
3B are now looking at addition and subtraction. The chapter starts off with simple addition before moving on to addition where renaming is required. Subtraction is also covered in a similar way where simple subtraction is mastered before moving to subtraction where renaming is required. Once we master addition and subtraction, we will start to look at problem solving questions and practice using bar models.
