We have been learning about place value in Year 3. The children have been representing numbers in different ways and have been on a place value hunt around school to answer questions.
The children have also been using number lines to identify and order numbers up to 1000 and have learnt all about increments. They have used their knowledge from Year 2 about greater than and less than symbols to compare and order numbers. We have also been identifying 10 more, 10 less, 100 more and 100 less of numbers up to 1000. The children have also been counting up in 50s and have been working hard to solve problems using their reasoning skills.
Addition and Subtraction
We have started looking at addition and subtraction in Year 3. The children have been learning different strategies to solve calculations. We have also used manipulatives to help us add and subtract three-digit numbers.
