Leo and Aimee showing resourcefulness in maths

Broadford's learning power of the term is resourcefulness and certain children in year 3 have been using their 'bits and bobs' to help them with their learning. 

This week in maths Leo and Aimee were finding their three chili question on fractions quite challenging! 

To help them, they drew the problem out on their whiteboards. 

This helped them understand exactly what fractions the shapes were equivalent to, so they could work out the total of both shapes in fractional form. 

Using their resourcefulness learning power, they solved the challenging problem with ease!

Great job Leo and Aimee!

Year 3 Learning Challenge - What happened in 1914?

Significant Person 

Winston Churchill 



We are making a new world’ by John Nash


‘Does it matter?’ by Siegfried Sasson

Does it matter?-losing your legs?...
For people will always be kind,
And you need not show that you mind
When the others come in after hunting
To gobble their muffins and eggs.
Does it really matter? – losing your sight?...
There’s such splendid work for the blind;
And people will always be kind,
As you sit on the terrace remembering
And turning your face to the light.
Do they matter? – those dreams from the pit?...
You can drink and forget and be glad,
And people won’t say that you’re mad;
For they’ll know you’ve fought for your country
And no one will worry a bit.


Marche Militaire’ by Schubert
