Could anyone confirm - is it a 2014 curriculum requirement that Year 3 children learn short division with remainders? I have it as an objective, but I can't seem to find it anywhere here. I am hoping it is in fact not a Year 3 objective!

Hi - am planning problem solving for my Y3 class and am looking at the sort of problem where teddy has a t-shirt and shorts - they can be x different colours - how many possibilities are there for the outfit? I wanted to be clear in my own head as to what sort of problem this is - is it a correspondence problem? Many thanks.

That's great thank you Debbie for the quick response - helped to clarify it for me. I'll also revisit the Bar Model.
