29/11/2017 - Maths

 

This week Year 3 have been exploring shapes and looking at the properties of them including: number of sides, vertices, lines of symmetry and even looked at perpendicular and parallel lines. Today the children looked more closely at problem solving and reasoning. One group went on a hunt around school to find as many different shapes as they could, another group looked at sorting and classifying shapes in a venn diagram and the final group had to decide if different statements were sometimes, always or never true. They then had to give examples and reasons to justify their decisions.

This afternoon Year 3 continued working through their scrumdiddlyumptious project and looked at different food groups and considered how they can make sure they have a healthy balanced diet.

07/11/2017 - Maths

 

Maths today was also a very practical lesson as the children have moved onto multiplication and division. The first step is to ensure that children are secure in their understanding of what equal groups are and can represent these in various ways. In the pictures below you can see the different ways that the children made their representations with some using Base 10 cubes and multi-link and others using counters. Some also used elastic bands on peg boards, which were a great success! The children will continue to represent their equal groups tomorrow before moving onto some written methods...

Year 3 were extremely lucky today and had the chance to go to the local supermarket in Spilsby to find out some more information about food and where it comes from. The children had the chance to look around the shop floor and ask lots of questions about where the food comes from? How many deliveries they have in a week? What temperature the food needs to be kept at? Then they also had the chance to find out some more information about the bakery and how the bread is made there.
