Today the Year 3 children completed a ‘100 numbers to get students talking’ maths challenge.
The children worked in groups of 3 with a 3 minute timer. They each had a coloured pencil and had to take it turns to find and circle their number and reach the highest possible number as a group.
They soon realised after the first round that there were patterns, but it also prompted maths discussion and team work. Each time the children were confident at beating their previous scores.
This challenge promoted communication, participation, planning, resilience and support which are key values at West Boldon.
