Counting in multiples

This week in maths, we have been focusing on partitioning numbers and counting in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100. We were given the challenge of writing a set of instructions to the children in the Nepal school, explaining how to count up in these multiples using base 10, numicon, counters and lego!  We worked very well in our teams and we have been fantastic maths teachers!

Lincs2Nepal

Yesterday year 3 had a visitor in school. Gary is part of the Lincs2Nepal charity and they have been working with villages around Nepal following the devastating earthquake in 2015. Gary and his team rebuild people’s lives by providing them with food, water, care and shelter, even to this day. When Gary left us, we had a think about our lives compared to those living in Nepal and we came to the conclusion that we are very lucky to be able to live like we do.

Thank you to Gary and the Lincs2Nepal volunteers for all of their wonderful work.
