e.g. In Year 3, we went to RHS Wisley as part of our Rainforest Topic. As usual, we walked to get the bus from the end of King’s Head Lane, except this time it hadn’t arrived. This was quite unusual and we were waiting for a few minutes whilst our teacher called the school the check where it was. After a few minutes, the yellow bus arrived, it turns out it had gone to West Byfleet Junior School instead of Byfleet Primary School!! Our journey took about 20 minutes. We were all so excited to go, especially after the bus had arrived later. Once we arrived, we got to explore the gardens, to my surprise they were much bigger than expected. I loved looking at all the flowers and plants, as well as reading the interesting facts about them. My favourite memory was…..

Friday:

Maths: Nrich Games: Play Remainders: https://nrich.maths.org/1783

Use the clues and interactive tool to investigate all the possible numbers using the clues provided. Explain your reasoning.

E.G. Clue: “I'm thinking of a number. My number is both a multiple of 5 and a multiple of 6. What could my number be?”

Answer: “The number could be thirty, because five and six are both factors of thirty. Another answer it could be is sixty or anything that is a multiple of thirty. A rule that I found was that the answer had to end in a zero because there is no multiple of six that ends in a five, and multiples of five have to end in a five or zero. So we knew that the answer had to end in a zero.”
