# Term 1 Maths

Grade 3s  have been busy mathematicians this term! Learning all about place value, data collection, graphs, addition and time.

We are now starting to look at the connection between addition and subtraction and the different strategies we can use to work out subtraction equations.

We are also starting to look at 3D shapes. Try heading out with your family on a 3D shape hunt and see what you can find. It may come in handy when recognising new shapes in class!
