Year 3 Estimation

This week in Year 3 we have been estimating! We have been learning how to make sensible estimations and adjust our original estimations based on new knowledge.

First, we estimated as a class. We made a first estimation and then the Teacher showed us how many 10 would be and we estimated again. Then we counted up the items to see how close we were!

Then, for the second part of the lesson we had to estimate things that we harder to quantify such as

  • How many pencils are in the drawer?
  • How many reading buses can you fit on the field?
  • How many books in the book corner?

We think we’ve got much better at making sensible estimations in Year 3¬
