P3M 20.9.19

Hi Everyone

This is what we have been learning in P3 this week.

NUMERCY

We have continued to learn to use different addition strategies in our SEAL groups. In mental maths we were talking about place value, discussing what the numbers represented in 2 digit numbers. We used a number square to help us solve addition problems. Written work supported this along with a game on the iPad- Topmarks-Caterpillar ordering.

LITERACY

Every group got a new book this week . We are continuing to learn to summarise stories. This week we were trying to use the words: somebody, wanted, but , so then, to help us rewrite the story. We summarised a chapter of the BFG for our assembly.

PE

We began to learn some rugby skills: dodging opponents, running with a ball and passing successfully.

ASSEMBLY

We planned together in groups to work out what we could do to share our learning with our families. Some of us put together short drama sequences, some of us wrote facts, some practised dancing and playing instruments and some created pictures. We were really pleased the way the two classes worked together.

The assembly is on FRIDAY 27 SEPTEMBER @ 9.15am. Please see previous blog for information on costumes or speak to one of the P3 teachers.

HANDWRITING

We have been practising forming letters correctly using cursive handwriting. This week we focused on s w v and joined them using the letters already revised : a c e m n o r u .

FRENCH

We revised our colours and numbers 0-20. We sang songs, played games and tried some written work to help us do this.

Have a lovely weekend.
