Maths

Each week we will upload a day by day break down of activities you can complete with your child along with any necessary resources for you to download. Children can complete the activities in their 'Working from Home' book. Resources do not need to be printed unless you wish. The different levels of difficulty are to support all learners so choose the level appropriate to your child's understanding. They do not always have to complete the same colour challenge every day.

 

Mental Fluency

Before completing their daily maths activity, it would be benefical for your child to complete a 5-a-day to support their mental fluency. The 5-a-day activities are designed to be 5/10 minute starters that revisit and revise previous strategies/concepts in a range of different contexts. We recommend bronze level for Year 3.

High value teaching ideas
Here are some useful maths teaching ideas that are designed to cover high value learning that will be necessary to build on next year. 
Week 14 WB 13.07
For the final week of maths Home Learning, the children will exploring statistics. There are a selection of question and answer papers based on bar charts, pictograms and tables. The children will need to interpret different sets of data and be encouraged to draw conclusions in order to answer the varied questions. 
Relevant resources:
Week 13 WB 06.7
This week the children will be continuing their work on time. There are a range of activities, including telling the time on both digital and analogue clocks as well as some problem solving in this area.

Week 12 WB 29.6
This week the children will be exploring time. The activities have been designed to recap some prior learning as well as explore some current objectives. There are a range of activities to suit all abilities that can be completed at your child's own pace throughout the week.

Week 11 WB 22.6
This week the children will be applying the short multiplication strategy they have recently been practising in problem solving contexts. There are a range of problems to suit all abilities that can be completed at your child's own pace throughout the week.

Relevant resources:
Week 10 WB 15.6
This week the children will be learning how to multiply multiples of ten which will then support their understanding of short multiplication the following week. Each step has been broken down and will require lots of practise before moving onto the next step.

Week 9 WB 08.6
This week the children will be continuing their work on shape, moving from 2D to 3D. As part of this weeks learning, the children will be looking at the properties of 3D shape as well as problem solving in this area. 

Weekly activity breakdown:

 

Relevant resources:
Week 8 WB 01.6
This week the children will be working on 2D shape. As part of this weeks learning, the children will be exploring different types of shape and their properties, along with opportunities to develop their reasoning skills. The children had not yet covered this unit of work in Year 3 so we have included some teaching notes which are outlined on the breakdown of activities.

Relevant resources:

Week 7 WB 18.5
This week the children will be revisiting measures. As part of this weeks learning, the children will be exploring the different types of measure including length, weight and capacity, as well as converting measure and solving problems in this area of maths. 
Weekly activity breakdown:
Relevant resources:
Week 6 WB 11.5
This week the children will be continuing their work on fractions. A quick reminder that children should be encouraged to draw their workings to demonstrate their understanding of how to find a fraction.  
Weekly activity breakdown:
Relevant resources:
Week 5 WB 04.5
This week the children will be revisiting fractions. They will be recapping how to find fractions of both shapes and amounts, followed by some problem solving. Children should be encouraged to draw their workings to demonstrate their understanding of how to find a fraction. Some problems may involve more than one step so we ask that your child spends some time unpicking it, solving one step at a time in order to reach the final answer.

Relevant resources:
Week 4 WB 27.4
This week the children will be revisiting division. They will be encouraged to make links between multiplication and division as well as solve problems around sharing.
Weekly activity breakdown:
Relevant resources:
Week 3 WB 20.4
This week the children will be revisiting multiplication, with a focus on recall of multiplication facts to support their knowledge of problem solving in this area of maths.

Week 2 WB 30.3

We will be revisiting and revising formal written methods for subtraction before applying in different problem solving contexts.

Note: when explaining this, we use the language "regrouping a ten" rather than "carrying a ten"

Weekly activity breakdown:
Relevant resources:

Week 1 WB 23.3

We will be revisiting and revising formal written methods for addition before applying in different problem solving contexts.

Note: when explaining this, we use the language "regrouping a ten" rather than "carrying a ten"
