Maths: For the beginning of this term we will be learning about fractions. The children’s learning will focus on: counting up and down in tenths; recognising that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts; finding ‘fractions of amounts’; adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator; comparing and ordering fractions with the same denominators and recognising equivalent fractions. The children will be also be focusing on measuring, with the focus for the topic being ‘time’. The children will be learning how to: tell and write the time from an analogue clock, including Roman numerals (I to XII); how to tell the time using a 12-hour clock and also begin to use the 24- hour clock; estimate and read time to the nearest minute; record and compare time in seconds, minutes and hours; use vocabulary including o’clock, am, pm, morning, afternoon, noon and midnight; know the number of seconds in a minute and the number of days in each month, year and leap year and compare the duration of events, for example calculating the time taken by events or tasks. We will then have 2 weeks focusing on property of shapes during which the children will identify right angles, whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle and identify horizontal, vertical, perpendicular and parallel lines. The children will also draw 2-D and 3-D shapes and describe their properties. The final topic for Year 3 in Maths will be ‘mass and capacity’. The children will measure, compare, add and subtract mass (kg and g) and capacity (l and ml). Throughout the term the children will continually work on their times table - please continue to practice the 3, 4 and 8 times tables at home with your child.
Don't forget to practise, practise and practise those times tables!
