Times table practise

Year 3 are having a heavy focus on number facts and multiplication

Children should already know their 2x, 5x and 10x tables and should be working on their 3x, 4x and 8x tables. Please support them at home with this.

To help their fluency in Mathematics we are also practising recall of basic number facts such as 3 + 7 = 10 and 7 + 3 = 10 so we must know that 13 + 7 = 20 and 17 + 3 = 20 and therefore 30 + 70 = 100 and 70 + 30 = 100 also 700 + 300 = 100 and 300 + 700 = 100.

From knowing 3 + 7 = 10 they can adapt this and use this to solve more complicated equations. Asking them to recall these number facts on the way to/from school, in the car or when out for a walk will help them learn them. Thank you.
