Year 3 received a challenge from Devon and Cornwall Constabulary to help them catch a thief. In order to do this the children needed their knowledge of times tables to crack the code. There was a bronze level challenge requiring knowledge of the multiplication tables we are focusing on in year 3 eg x2 x3 x4 x5 and x8.
The extra challenge required knowledge of solving 2 digit x 1 digit numbers which required the use of formal written methods.
The children were very excited to solve the problem and were confident in reporting that the culprit was………KENNY!!!
