Today the skill you will be practising is:
-estimating the answer to a calculation
In school in every maths lesson, we start by counting forwards and backwards from different numbers. Today I would like you to count forwards and backwards in 3's from 60.
Today you are going to be estimating answers to addition and subtraction questions. Remember when you estimate, you are looking for an answer that is close but not the proper answer!
You will need to decide which multiple of 10 each of the numbers are closest to. Look at the example below 21 is closer to 20 than 30 and 68 is closer to 70 than 60 so I am going to do 20+70=90.
Take photos of your work and send them into your teachers - Year3@wilnecote-junior.staffs.sch.uk
We look forward to seeing your fabulous work!
