We hope this post sees you all well. This week in P3, we have been finishing our Egyptian topic. We looked at the Scarab Beetle and discovered why the Ancient Egyptians believed why these were important symbols during this time. We created our own design of a Scarab Beetle, looking at the different designs and symmetrical patterns that were often found on these symbols. The children made their own boxes to store their Beetles in. They look very impressive!
We have both been so proud about how engaged and committed the children have been throughout our Egyptian topic and we are sure that our learning will stay in everyone’s memories for a very long time. Even though we are sad to be finishing such an exciting topic, we have an equally exciting new topic starting after Christmas. We can’t wait to get started!
In Maths this week, we have been learning about 3D shapes. The children impressed us with their knowledge of many 3D shapes, including a hexagonal prism! We will be continuing this next week. In Numeracy we have been continuing to learn more about division. This week we introduced remainders to the children and attached are some pictures of some children using counters and cubes to help them group amounts into equal groups to make it easier to find out how many were left over.
Our persuasive writing continues to amaze us and this week we wrote to the Elves to persuade them that we have been good this year! We reckon the Elves will be very impressed with the children’s’ writing. Well done everyone!
