Year 3

Miss Gilmartin: Year 3 Teacher

What have we been learning?

In Maths this half term, we have been developing our addition and subtraction skills by looking at adding ones to a 3-digit number with an exchange. We used place value counters to help us understand that when adding ones it can affect the ones column and the tens column. This will helps us later on when we look at adding a 2-digit number to a 3-digit number! 

Year 3 also had an exciting opportunity to take part in some fire-building this half term. Mr Dockerill came in and taught us all about how to build a fire using natural materials around us. We learnt how to create a spark and had a go at making a small fire using pieces of cotton wool. It was a great day and the children thoroughly enjoyed toasting their brioches over the fire!
