P3MB Friday 18 September

Hello everyone. Here is what we have been learning this week:

Numeracy and Maths

We have been practising counting in 2s, 3s, 5s, 10s and 4s.

We have also been revising and learning our number bonds to 10 and 20. Knowing these really well will help us when we are adding amounts. To challenge us a bit further, we also worked on number bonds (or jigsaw numbers) to 100.

Things to try at home:


We spent some time outdoors this week learning and revising the properties of 2D shapes and we discussed the names and properties of 3D objects.



We have been developing our skills in summarising stories. We summarised ‘A Squash and a Squeeze’ by Julia Donaldson using the structure ‘Somebody, wanted, but, so, then’ to help us.


We have been focussing on using full stops and capital letters this week. We wrote about stories about autumn and worked on completing sentences in our grammar lesson.


We worked on forming a, d, c and g using cursive handwriting this week.

Things to try at home:

Read a story and then retell it to someone at home using the structure, ‘Sombody, wanted, but, so then.’

Make up sentences, write them down and check you have used a capital letter and a full stop.

Practise your handwriting using pens, pencils, crayons, chalk; any materials available to you at home.

We were learning to count to 13 in French by playing a fun game outside.


We have been trying to beat our own scores for running and star jumps. We talked about some of our scores may have gone down instead of up!

Health and Wellbeing

We have been talking about what makes us angry or frustrated and the tools or strategies we might use to deal with these emotions.

Tools for School

We have been using our pencils and rubbers etc that we brought from home since we returned to school in August. We discussed speaking to someone at home if it was now time to replace some of our items.

Lost Property

We have a grey cardigan (M&S age 3-4) and a grey Buckstone jumper (age 7-8) in the classroom that nobody is claiming! Please have a check and say to your child if you think these belong in your family. It is really helpful if items of clothing, especially cardigans and jumpers are named so we can return lost items easily.

Have a lovely long weekend! See you all on Tuesday.
