In Maths we have focussed on using and applying all the skills we have learnt in Year 2.
We have had a go at
- partitioning numbers,
- take away,
- word problems,
- ordering numbers
- using more than and less than.
Challenge: Can you write some maths questions using your new skills?
This week in English we haveÂ retold the story of George, the Dragon and the Princess.
Challenge: Â Who is the story about? Where is the story set? What happens?
Your teachers have been very busy getting things ready for after half term… We are booking a trip and you might find the roleplay area in your classroom will soon be changing.
Challenge: What do you think our new topic could be?
Every Friday we will be having a mental arithmetic lesson. This means we will be answering maths questions, but not using anything to help us. No tens and units, no hundred square, not even any counters… just your brain!
At first you might not get all the questions right, but it is important to practise every week and even at home to improve your mental maths skills. When we first started learning our times tables they are very tricky, but now I know lots of you can do your 2x, Â 5x , 10x Â and even some children know their 3 times tables as well.
Here are some games that you can play to practise your skills.
