The children in Year 3 have been working hard with written and mental methods of addition and subtraction. They have been using place value counters and dienes equipment to add and subtract with two and three digit numbers. They have also used numberlines to count forward and count back. The boys and girls have impressed the staff with their mental maths skills: they have used known facts to calculate, have added and subtracted pairs of numbers and were so proud to show off their recall of number bonds . In class they enjoyed working on Purple Mash using the ipads to play a range of addition and subtraction games.
