What a brilliant first week back in the classroom we have been having in P3!
Our oceans Topic is well under way. We began by looking at the Global Goals and linking some of them to the ocean. We made our own symbols for each of these. We then looked at the layers of the ocean and discovered some very interesting sea creatures the deeper we delved down. We are all very excited to be learning about this and what was our pyramid will soon be turning into a class aquarium. Look out for some pictures over the coming weeks!
In Maths, we have been revising our 3D shapes and created posters to show what we know. We then made our very own 3D shapes, focusing on faces, edges and vertices. Check Seesaw for a look at some of the creations.
In Reading, we have been looking at our reading strategies and learned all about the ‘Think Aloud’ strategy. The children we very good at writing down all of their thoughts on a poem about a giant lasagne!
Things to note-
- PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Can we remind everyone that on these days, children are to come to school wearing their PE kit (with school jumper on)
- Red Nose Day 2021- if you wish to purchase a red nose, the office are accepting payment through parent pay. Unfortunately we are not accepting cash at this time. There is (or will be) a letter going home to explain Red Nose Day. The noses are £1.50.
- Homework- this will now be on Seesaw from Monday. We will be sending home a grid with all tasks on Monday as well, but the tasks are to be completed (where possible) on Seesaw. They will go live from 3pm on Monday. We will also be sending home new reading books next week too. Can we just ask for the return of any previous reading books sent home if you forgot to hand these back before Christmas.
We have been so impressed and proud by how mature all of the children have settled back into class. It is lovely to be back together again in the same environment. Well done to everyone for your hard work this week. The standard of work that has been produced has been incredible. Have a wonderful and restful weekend.
As always, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions.
Mr Williamson and Miss Smith.
