Unfortunately, we are no longer setting MyMaths work as we have set all possible activities. Children can still complete incomplete MyMaths tasks and use the website for games. Instead, we have planned daily lessons from Oak National Academy, which can be found on the weekly timetable. We will also be using these lessons with our 'key worker' children in school.
Children have been sent home with their logins and we have all logged on at school together so the children will know how to access their accounts. The MyMaths activities will vary but the children have been showed how to view the ‘lessons’ to help them to complete their work if they are finding it tricky.
Thank you to all of the children who have been completing the work that has been set on MyMaths :)
Please also encourage your child to log on to their TTRS account to practise their times tables regularly. We will regularly set different year 3 competitions. Children will also be able to access NumBots via the TTRS platform.
In year 3, we focus on learning the 3, 4 and 8 times tables and children should also be confident in their 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
Race around the track
Children can also keep practising their times tables on the race around the track. They have one minute to answer all of the questions. This is an excellent game to prepare them for their multiplication tables check in Year 4.
Other Maths Learning:
We are also encouraging that adults support their children with learning to tell the time both on a digital and analogue clock.
The year 3 objectives for telling the time are listed below:
- tell and write the time from an analogue clock, including using Roman numerals from I to XII, and 12-hour and 24-hour clocks
- estimate and read time with increasing accuracy to the nearest minute; record and compare time in terms of seconds, minutes and hours; use vocabulary such as 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.
We are also encouraging adults to support their children with their money skills. This will include being able to recognise money, including all coins and notes. It would also be great if children can be supported in being able to count money and add and subtract amounts of money to give change, using both £ and p.
