My mini maths

3LT – Today we have been working on adding using the column method. Here is a maths challenge for you to have a go at home. Post your answers below and you will get 3 House Points if you get them correct. You can work them out on scrap paper at home. Don’t forget to put your name on!

Making Stone Age spears/axes

3LT were given the task of making a Stone Age spear! They had to use their knowledge to decide which materials would be appropriate, find them from outside, draw and label their design and create it. After that, they evaluated their spear and thought about how to improve it, went outside to get more/different materials, make it again and then evaluate it!

Stone Age bread

Y3 have been researching the Stone Age and found out that even way back then, over 2.5 million years ago, when they became the first farmers, humans were growing wheat and making bread. They had a go at making it, using skills such as kneading and rolling. As you can, see they had a great time!


3LT learned a little about Spain and then went to our school cafe to make their own paella! We used vegetables grown from the school garden and had a great time revising our chopping skills and tasting the fruits of our labour.

I’ve attached the recipe – it’s really simple to make so if you have a go at home, please send me some pictures.
