Money, Modelling and Multiplication!

Here are just a few pictures showing some of the maths activities that we have been doing in Year 3 so far this year. At the beginning of the term we went on a times table hunt around the school to remind us of our 2, 5 and 10 times tables facts. Also we looked at different methods of adding and subtracting money.

Sculpting Experts!

Over the past two days Year 2 and Year 3 had the pleasure of working with the artist Helen Pailing. Helen taught us creative and inventive ways to recycle old materials to create pieces of art.

As you can see from the pictures we all had a brilliant time in class creating our sculptures and we will all think twice before throwing scrap materials away again!
