Multiplication and Division
Over the last few weeks, we have been solving problems using our multiplication and division skills. To help us understand more clearly, we have used counters and a variety of written methods to solve some very tricky calculations. We used many different strategies such as number lines, bar models and, of course, our ever-growing knowledge of 3, 4 and 8 times tables.
Brooke said, “I am confident at counting in 3s forwards and back.”
Harley identified, “I can fill in number lines that go up and down in 3s and 4s.”
Maisy explained, “I like counting in 3s, 4s and 8s at the beginning of lessons because it helps me with questions in my workbook.”
Scarlett said, “I am practising my times tables at home so I can improve my test score.”
Hannah said, “I make up my own focus tasks at home and see how many methods I can come up with.”
Year 3 has also created some great journaling and tackled daily challenges which are all displayed on our maths working wall and in their books.
Next, Year 3 will be multiplying and dividing with two digit numbers and solving 2 step problems.
