P3M 27.9.19

ASSEMBLY

Thanks to everybody who supported P3 with their assembly. The children were very excited and enjoyed having such an appreciative audience. We were delighted by the way the two classes worked together in groups to come up with ideas and create drama, music, art work and scripts.  The children really tried to speak loudly and clearly in a big space in front of two audiences. Well done P3!

NUMERACY

We have continued to look at different addition strategies and have been practising using them in our mental maths sessions: counting on, using doubles and near doubles, using our knowledge of number bonds to 10 and 20. We have been learning about addition in our SEAL groups.

LITERACY

We have continued to practise summarising our reading books. We have also answered written comprehension questions about our reading books and tried very hard to answer in full sentences using punctuation. We are trying to remember to use the book and the question to help us with the answer and to spell correctly.

We did an assessment of the Block 3 words so we could identify the words we need to practise. We also looked at words ending in a double consonant and completed a variety of activities to help us learn them. Dictation is on a Friday to help assess the words we need to practise.

FRENCH

We completed the written French work we had started last week and used our knowledge of colours and numbers to create a drawing for our friends to colour in. We are confident in our knowledge of numbers 0-10 and will continue to practise numbers 11- 20.

Have a lovely weekend

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.

13.9.19 P3M

Hi Everyone

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

NUMERACY

We have been learning to use different addition strategies and will be working on these for the next few weeks. In our groups we have been: learning our number bonds to 10 and 20, using doubles and near doubles and  counting on to help us add numbers together.

LITERACY

In reading we are focusing on summarising the story so we have been talking about the beginning, middle and end of a story and trying to put the story in our own words.

In spelling we have been looking at words which have the tw, sw, st, sc, blend at the beginning and our tricky words are : here, there, go, no, so.

We wrote about our favourite places trying to include describing words and remembering to use full stops and capital letters.

PE

We are continuing to work on our fitness levels using suggestions from class members and we are also learning a Norwegian folk dance to show parents at our assembly.

FRENCH

We talked about the French words for some colours and played a game to help us learn them.

ASSEMBLY

We are very excited to share our learning with our families on September 27th. As our assembly is Roald Dahl themed we thought it would be fun  for our clothes to have some connection to Roald Dahl or his stories. We don’t want anyone going to a lot of trouble so this ‘costume’ could be as simple as a golden ticket worn around the neck for Charlie from ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ or a book under the arm for Matilda.

Enjoy the long weekend

P3M 23.8.19

Welcome to P3M!

We have had a great couple of weeks getting to know one another. We have been reminding ourselves about writing in sentences and revising addition.

Everyone has been given a new reading book this week and once we are more familiar with groups and abilities we will let you know your child’s reading days.

We will be having PE twice a week and will let you know the days when the timetable has been finalised.

The school website will not be available next week as it is being updated but we look forward to sharing our learning with you in our weekly blog when the new website is up and running.

Have a lovely weekend.
