P3M What we have been learning – 09.03.18

Maths and Numeracy

This week in Maths and Numeracy we have been learning  the times tables – we are trying to recite them quickly and accurately. We also compared costs in money to see what is affordable.

We enjoyed the times table games to help us remember. We want to practice division next week.




In Literacy this week we learnt about imperative verbs – they are bossy words we use in instructions. We loved the song to help us learn about them!

In reading we are reading non-fiction books that tell us information.

In spelling our rule is magic e. This turns vowels to say the name of the letter. E.g. Cake

We enjoyed celebrating World Book Day. Not only did we dress up but we also had Drop Everything and Read, watched an Author’s Live and started the Book Swap!

Health and Wellbeing 

In P.E we have developed skills in central net games, particularly badminton. We also started Football lessons where we worked on communication and dribbling. We have 5 more sessions with Pam. We are looking forward to next week.


Sadly, it was our last week of swimming. We had so much fun and all grew in confidence.  Thank you very much to all the parent helpers throughout the swimming sessions. We really liked your help!

Other areas of the curriculum 

  • We made our final observations of our experiments. Most of our predictions were correct!
  • We have been practising our song for the Birthday celebration in a couple of weeks. We will keep doing this next week!
