In Maths, we follow the White Rose Maths Scheme. We build up our learning by initially using concrete materials, then by using pictures to help us, so that we are finally ready for more abstract concepts.
In Autumn 1, we focused on securing our understanding of Place Value in three digit numbers. We used Base 10 equipment and Place Value counters to help to develop our understanding. When we felt more confident, we drew the equipment on our whiteboards to help us. We were able to solve problems using our place value knowledge.
Addition and Subtraction
In Autumn 1, we also began to use our place value knowledge to help us to mentally calculate addition and subtraction calculations. In Autumn 2, we will be moving on to using the formal written methods for these calculations.
