    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.

    Geography in Year 3

    Where in the world are we?

    We have kicked off this half term by using an atlas (a book of maps) to look at some features of the world.  We have studied the equator, the tropics, the Arctic and Antarctic Circles and discovered that the world is divided into hemispheres.

    We were let loose with an atlas and, with a partner, located these features by using a map of the world.

    Erin recognised, “There is a line around the middle of the earth and it is called the equator.”

    Mollie discovered, “The climate around the tropics is very warm because it gets lots of sun. However there is also lots of rain so it is wet.”

    Olly learned, “A book of maps is called an atlas.  It also has country’s flags and information about different places and weather in the world.”

    Naomi identified, “The Arctic and Antarctic Circles are deserts that are very cold because they don’t get as much sun so it is very snowy and icy.”

    Year 3 will also be learning about the continents and oceans of the world as well as identifying the different climates and landscapes we find in different places.
