Year 3’s Working Hard on their Maths Close the Gaps!

Year 3 have been working on practicing using written methods to solve four questions every day. They are given an addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. This close the gap work is completed in the children’s maths books and each child has a grow sheet to track their progress each day. Importantly, they MUST show their working out – something they have not consistently been doing. This helps eliminate minor errors and is a skill required in later years for SATs and GCSE’s as marks are given for showing working out not just the final answer.

Examples of questions: 

520cm + 193cm =

342 – 139 =

5 x ____ = 40

27 9 =

How you can help your child at home…

Spend 10 -15 mins creating similar style questions and supporting your child to answer these 3-4 times a a week. Short, focused and regular practice will improve your child’s overall skills.

Any questions, please talk to a member of the year 3 team.





Year 3 Spring Term learning

Year 3 have begun learning about the Ancient Greeks. As part of our Ignite day the children took part in a Greek dress up day and participated in a variety of activities, such as creating Greek temples, playing Greek games and learning the Greek myth Pandora’s Box to ignite our learning. 

In our maths lessons we have been exploring methods to solve multiplication problems. We had lots of fun creating arrays to work out our questions.

Year 3 Maths Homework – Spring Week 2

Year 3b World Book Day!

Class 3b were looking fantastic on Thursday in their World Book Day costumes! Thank you to all the parents and carers for helping your children dress up and to those of you who were able to come in and read with us!

Lots of creativity, reading and great book discussions took place and it was lovely to see all of the children getting very excited about reading! In the afternoon we made dream catchers inspired by The BFG – Roald Dahl. These aren’t quite finished so we will be sharing these with you soon!

Well done 3b!
