Forres Primary School

School finishes Friday 5th April at 2pm for the Easter holidays


In maths year 3 will be looking at:


· Place value– Children will be recognising the value of each digit in a three-digit number.

· Estimation– compare and order numbers up to 1000 and looking at their rounding skills.

· Measure– Children will be measuring and comparing different lengths, masses and volume.

· Addition and subtraction– Children will be able to add and subtract numbers mentally. Children will be taught to add and subtract using the formal written method.

· Problem solving– we will be solving problems, including missing number problems, using number facts, place value and more complex addition and subtractions.

· Angles– They will be taught to recognise that angles are a property of a shape or a description of a turn.

· Recognise that angles are a property of shape or a description of a turn

· 2D shapes– Children will be able to draw 2D shapes and recognise their properties.

· Perimeter– We will be measuring the perimeter of simple 2D shapes.


We have been looking at angles in our maths lessons. We started the week familiarising ourselves with what an angle is, then we looked at different sized angles (right, acute and obtuse), we then looked at what angles are in some 2D shapes
