Deck the halls with your times tables!

On Friday, the challenge was set for the children in Mr Boynes’s maths group to label the links of a paper chain with their times tables. They had to carefully measure the strips of paper using a ruler before cutting them out, then write their times tables onto the links and see how high they could get!

They obviously couldn’t help but have some fun along the way…

Roar Talent!

After our successful trip to see ‘Lion King’ at Lyceum theatre in London, our follow-up work was bound to be a roaring success.

Below you can read our responses. We were encouraged to write using one of the genres that we’ve learned about in Year 3. We were really pleased with the imagination and creativity shown in the finished pieces.

See if you can name the genres used in the pieces below, and don’t forget to comment on what you liked and what you would recommend for improvement.
