Mathematics
We follow a maths mastery approach at St. George's and as such, we are spending time securing knowledge and understanding of the mathematical concepts we have previously mastered before moving onto new learning. When we are secure in the Year 2 concepts, we will move on to incorporating more complex ideas into our lessons, always drawing on previous learning in order to make connections. The aim is to become fluent in number facts, be able to represent what we know in many different ways and make links between areas of knowledge  thus becoming Maths Masters!
At St. George's, we believe everyone can master maths.
With hard work and encouragement, we can all achieve!
This term's learning (Summer 2 2024):
This term, we will contine to focus on Spine 2.8 (Multiplication and Division). We will then move onto Shape (3G2) and Time.
These are our teaching points for these units of learning. Please find Knowledge Organisers to download at the bottom of each page.
Spine 2.8Times tables: 3, 6 and 9, and the relationship between themIntroductionBuild up the three/six/nine times table; using different structures/interpretations of multiplication and division, solve problems related to these tables; explore connections between the three, six and nine times tables.Teaching points

Shape 3G2YEAR 3  GEOMETRY  PROPERTIES OF SHAPES
Pupils’ knowledge of the properties of shapes is extended at this stage to symmetrical and nonsymmetrical polygons and polyhedra. Pupils extend their use of the properties of shapes. They should be able to describe the properties of 2D and 3D shapes using accurate language, including lengths of lines and acute and obtuse for angles greater or lesser than a right angle. Pupils connect decimals and rounding to drawing and measuring straight lines in centimetres, in a variety of contexts.

Mathletics
I will set Mathletics homework each week. It will be set on FRIDAY and will be due the next TUESDAY. It will usually always complement the work we are doing in class. Children, please feel free to do extra if you wish to challenge yourselves!

Children, if you don't understand something, click the 'i' in the toptight corner. This will give you an explanation if you follow the arrows on the right.
Times Table Rockstars
The children will have log ins for Times Tables Rockstars. Please make sure you support your child in learning their times tables each week.
