Maths at Woodbridge Junior School follows the Maths No Problem Textbooks – This term we are focusing on developing our understanding of Place Value, and Addition including formal written methods of the column method. The children will learn how to compose and decompose numbers, compare, order and look for patterns. Additionally the children will have opportunity to apply their knowledge of Place Value and Addition methods to solve word problems. During every lesson we encourage all children to use base ten to support their concrete understanding of number. Later on in the term we will begin to focus on Subtraction using base ten and the column method to solve problems.
Some of the methods taught during these sessions may be different to the way you were taught Maths at school so if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to speak to a member of the year 3 team – Mrs Bates, Mrs Lamb or Mrs Gratton.
