Year 3 Maths

Boys work through the inclusive Abacus Scheme, which follows the National Curriculum, pushing boys to ‘Mastery’ level as and when they are ready. Throughout the year, in each term, the boys develop their skills in the four rules of number; shape, space and measure. Number and place value; problem solving, reasoning and algebra; mental addition and subtraction; fractions, ratio and proportion; mental multiplication and division; geometry position and direction; and measurement skills are used in progressive and various forms throughout the year, culminating in use and application to merge these topics and skills, all of which are visited and revisited throughout the year.
