Week Beginning 2nd November

This week we continued our wonderful work on column addition and subtraction.

Week Beginning 9th November

In maths this week, we have been using what we know about adding and subtracting multiples of ten, to solve calculations.  We have also looked at what happens when you need to exchange ten tens for one hundred.  We have done some terrific maths drawings to help us, as well as using our Base ten equipment and counters.
We worked in partners to have our first go at solving questions like 234 - 80.  We had to exchange a hundred for 10 tens.

Week Beginning 16th November 


This week, we continued focusing on subtract a multiple of ten from a 3 digit number, for example 319 - 40. We discovered that we need to exchange 1 hundred for 10 tens in order to carry out the calculation. 


Later in the week, we moved onto applying our new knowledge to problem solving. We all worked brilliantly with our coaching partners to find all of the possible solutions. 

Week beginning 7th December

We have been working with larger numbers using both addition and subtraction.  We have tackled problems with exchanges in different columns and sometimes with 2 exchanges.  We are using a mixture of mental, pictorial and column method depending on the questions

Week beginning 14th December

We have worked really hard on our addition and subtraction calculations.  How would you solve each of these questions? Which ones are easier and which have some regrouping?


236 + 347        614 + 152       363 + 264


573 - 132         219 - 163        461 - 224
