All about number 3!
In our busy time, we practise lots of maths skills such as ordering numbers, writing, creating and cutting shapes, making patterns and using calculators, however, in Puzzle time this week, we are learning all about the number 3!
We are learning how we can make three using other numbers such as 1 + 2 and 3 + 0. We will learn where to spot 3 on a number line and how to find one more than 3. We will create three using a selection of resources and will understand how it is represented in other math resources such as on a dice face.
Most importantly, we will learn how to represent 3 on a tens frame. We were introduced to tens frames last week and are really good at using them in our learning! Here is one below:
