This week our Year Three children were challenged to three new games. The first was called Grab and Group, the children had to grab a handful of counters and then try to group them without any reminders. They had to group them in 2s, 3s and 4s. The next game was called Nearby Facts,the object was to roll the die and multiply the answer by 10 then the children had to multiply by 11 then 9. The final game was Zap, the children had to get had to reduce a 5 digit number to zero using a calculator and their place value knowledge, e.g. 45,328 -8 = 45,320, then 45,320, -20 = 45,300….. Challenging but fun!
