Year 3

Weekly Update of w/e 15th June 2018

This week in Year 3 we have been learning all about money in maths. We started by looking at different coins and notes and completed an investigation which involved us practising adding amounts of money. We have also looked at giving change and representing problems in a bar model. In English we have been writing in role as the deceased fly from the story, The Spider and the Fly and have been using our persuasive writing techniques, to persuade other bugs not to fall for the wily spider’s tricks.
