You can still go onto Gareth Metcalfe’s http://www.iseemaths.com/ website as extra work. He has some great ideas, however this term we’d like you to focus on using White Rose Maths Home Learning website as this covers everything that we would be doing using our Power Maths workbooks. Make sure you look at the daily video first https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ and then have a go at the workbook pages. Take photos of you work and share it on the Maths Padlet.
