Sports for Schools

On Thursday we took part in a sports for schools activity. We completed a fitness circuit with our class. It was tough but we did it! Thank you to everyone who sponsored us.

We also met Craig McCann, a Paralympic athlete who has competed in fencing and cycling. He delivered an inspirational assembly after the fitness circuit, explaining a little bit about his life and what he has been through. We have made a promise to Craig, we promised to always say ‘yes’ to having at new things.

What a great morning!

X Factor Times Tables

Today we introduced the children to the X Factor times table challenge. Every week, at a mystery time, on a mystery day, the children will take part in the challenge. They will be given two minutes to complete a set of times table questions and the corresponding inverse operations. Once they have successfully completed this within the time limit, they will move onto the next challenge. There are usually 3 stages within each challenge. The children will bring home the X Factor challenges they have completed in class, so parents are aware of their next steps in learning. 

Have a great weekend,

The Year 3 team
