Year 3 Maths

 Our new unit in maths is using models in addition and subtraction. We have been learning about bar modelling. Bar modelling is a really good way of helping us to understand the relative size of numbers. We have been using the cuisenaire to help tell our own maths stories.

Pirate Day

 As part of our literacy, we have been learning about pirates. We had a pirate day to get us into character. We dressed up and completed pirate missions and researched all about pirates from the past. We all had a brilliant day and luckily none of us were made to walk the plank!!!!

Remembrance Day 

As part of Remembrance Day, we made our own Poppy reefs for our doors. We used egg boxes and decorated them with paint and glitter.

Year 3 Maths

In our maths work, we have been learning about numbers up to 1000. We have been using the base 10 grids and equipment to partition numbers into 100s, 10s and 1s. We have then been counting up in 1s, 10s and 100s using the equipment to help us.
