P3C Blog 30/10/20

It has been a fun week back in P3C after the holidays! There have been a lot of questions asked about the book talk next week and a lot of excitement about sharing books with the class. For more information see the blog entry titled “P3C Book Talks”. We will be starting the talks next week. If your child has chosen a book they have at home to do the talk it would be helpful if they brought it in on Monday as we will do some activities in class to help prepare for the talks.

We have been revising the maths and numeracy strategies we were learning before the holiday. The class are becoming more and more confident in adding numbers.

Things to do at home:

  • Keep on practising number bonds to 10, 20 and 100 to help your addition skills
  • Practise adding numbers wherever you see them!

We had fun outdoors creating Halloween art pictures using items we could find on the ground; leaves, twigs, moss, stones. They are very creative! Some examples are attached below. For creative writing we wrote Halloween stories using a haunted house picture as a context – they were very scary!!! This morning we made ghosts!

Things to do at home:

  • Find a picture in a book, magazine, packaging or the internet (or anywhere else!) that you like and use it to do a “free write” (like we do in class). Create a piece of writing using the picture as inspiration. It can be any piece of writing you like! Story, letter, newspaper article, description.

This week we have completed our art work for The Giraffe, Pelly and Me, with our animal drawing mounted on our Hampshire Estate drawings in the style of Paul Klee. They are excellent, eye catching and creative! Some examples are attached below:

It has been great seeing everyone again this week. The pumpkin trail was fantastic! Thank you to everyone who brought a pumpkin in!!!

Have a great weekend and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
