Year 3 have been invited to watch a theatre production at the Blue Box Theatre, Chorlton High School next Thursday 26th May. We will be leaving school at 9:15am and expect to return by lunchtime. There is no charge, but please make sure that your child wears a waterproof coat and sensible shoes to school in case we are caught in bad weather and that your child is in class before registration close at 9:05am!
The Year 3 Team.
Maths methods and guidelines
We have recorded some clips to show you how your child learns maths in the classroom. You are able to leave a comment on each individual clip if you would like to ask us any further questions regarding that particular method. It would be GREAT to hear from you and get your ideas and feedback. You can either do this by leaving a comment on the blog directly or as you watch each video you’re able to select the ‘comment’ feature at the bottom, in the centre above the play icon. It would help us greatly to know if this is something we should develop and expand.
