Maths Learning

Thursday 2nd April 2020


For your maths activity today, we would like you to complete the arithmetic test paper in your pack. 


  • Try the questions on your own first - remembering to use the methods you have learnt for adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. 
  • If you get stuck, leave that question and then come back to it. 
  • When you have a look through with your grown up - show them some of your methods you have used to answer the questions. 



Choose a couple of the sums and change them into word problems. 

Arithmetic Paper Resource

01/04/20             Problem solving: Multiplication

Today we will solve problems involving multiplying numbers together.


Discussion points:

What words/phrases do you know that mean you need to multiply?

What written method do you know for multiplying?

If you multiply a number, will it get bigger or smaller?



Lots of, groups of, times, repeated addition…

We use grid method in Year 3. J

The answer will be greater (bigger).


Learning task:

Use your times tables and Grid Method to solve these multiplication problems. Remember to use RUCSAC:

30/03/20     Times tables


It’s Monday! Which means it’s Times Tables day!

Learning Task 1

Times Table Rockstars: Spend some time practising your times tables on Times Table Rockstars. Use the log in inside your Yellow Log.

Learning Task 2

You have 2 minutes to complete your times table test! Ask someone to time you. Use the colour that you are working on at the moment in school. Check your answers using the answer sheet in your learning pack.


Challenge- On squared paper, write the FACT FAMILY for each question on your test.

For example- 4 x 8 = 32 so you would write:

8 x 4 = 32

32 ÷ 8 = 4

32 ÷ 4 = 8



27/03/20            Number line method for Division

Good morning. In Maths today we are going to revise using a number line to divide. First, have a go at the game I have assigned you on Maths Shed (Division)


Have a look at Miss Edwards’ examples of number line method for 45 ÷ 5

Picture 1
Picture 2

45 ÷ 5 = 9 because there are 9 jumps!



Mild- Draw your own number line (I have drawn examples below to copy)


Mild 1


Spicy 1


You can complete these more quickly by doing 1 big jump of 10 x the number. Look at my example below before you start:

26/03/20          Grid method for Multiplication!


Hello everyone! I hope you have been enjoying this week’s Maths learning. Today we would like you to practise your grid method for multiplication.


Check out Miss Edwards’ grid method below as a reminder:

Picture 1

Here are 5 questions to answer on the squared paper in your pack. These questions just have a 1 in the TENS column, so they are a bit easier!

1.  12 x 4

2.  15 x 3

3.  18 x 4

4.  16 x 5

5.  13 x 3

If you are finding these tricky, use this times table grid to help you. If not, keep going without it!

Picture 1

Now let’s look back and Miss Edwards’ way of answering 25 x 3. This one has a 2 in the TENS column:

Picture 1

-Remove the zero and work out 2 x 3 instead.

-Remember to multiply your answer by 10 (putting that zero back in the ONES column!)

Now try these:

24/03/20       Column method: addition


Learning Task 1: No regrouping

On the squared paper in your pack, complete the first 4 addition questions using COLUMN METHOD. Remember to write 1 digit per square and write HTO at the top if this helps you to put the digits into the correct columns.



Picture 1


1.  145 + 643

2.  838 + 121

3.  736 + 252

4.  516 + 123


Learning Task 2: Regrouping

Now complete these 10 questions using regrouping. Don’t forget to add the one you have carried underneath!

For a reminder, check out this video: 

…or the helpful instructions below.

Picture 1

1) 109 + 152 =                   6) 855 + 147 =

2) 183 + 218 =                   7) 558 + 222 =

3) 216 + 285 =                   8) 615 + 175 =

4) 369 + 131 =                   9) 308 + 103 =

5) 579 + 429 =                  10) 409 + 419 =


Answers to be posted tomorrow for you to mark.
