We've become quite the little mathematicians this week, as we have been solving more complicated subtraction calculations, which involve carrying (borrowing). We have also been working on the skills of sharing our knowledge with others, which reflects and shows our true mastery and understanding of the subject.
This term we started off with learning about the place value of numbers. We then moved on to addition of three-digit numbers and looked at all the different methods we can use, including: counting on, number bonds (partitioning), as well as both expanded and the more compact column addition. We are now repeating the same learning structure but with subtraction. We always use lots of concrete objects and pictorials whilst carrying out our work, to ensure deeper understanding.
