We have had another busy time in B3 this week.
We are still working on our dinosaur non-chronological reports in English. We have been editing and improving our work and next week, we will be copying it up and including illustrations.
On Friday, we had 'Number Day' in Year 3.
We took part in a whole range of numerical activities, working as individuals, in pairs and in groups. It was great to spend the whole day focusing on Maths.
Before we lunch we had a carousel of three activities. Each group rotated round and had a go at the following:
1. Facts About...
..numbers from 1 to 10. we had to think about each number and come up with facts linked to them e.g. there are 4 sides on a square; 4 children in quadruplets; 4 main compass points. Once we'd brainstormed ideas, we wrote them down around each number.
2. Calculator Problems.
We used calculators to work on 3 different investigations where we could use a calculator. We had to use 'trial and error' strategies where we tried out our ideas and if they didn't work, tried another way to see if it did work.
3. Snakes and Ladders
In groups, we played Snakes and Ladders. It was great fun and a number of us nearly won the game but then landed on a snake, on square number 99. and slid all the way down to square 41. If you'd like a copy of our Snakes and Ladders board please ask Mrs Lowden and she'll send one home. You'll just need counters and a die to play!
