Y3 Maths

This Year 3 Check Answers lesson covers the prior learning of checking calculations using pictorial representations and the inverse, before moving onto the main skill of using the inverse method and near numbers to check answers.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
