This week in P3Y…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in P3Y! We’ve had a festive start to a new month with lots of Christmas related activities happening.

We have been learning about the history of the Christmas tree. We know that Prince Albert and Queen Victoria were some of the first people to have a Christmas Tree in the UK in 1840. We were able to recall many more interesting facts about Victorian Christmas trees and created an informative report about what we had learnt. We made sure that our facts were in the correct order, and that our sentences contained full stops and capital letters where needed and used connectives to extend them.

In maths this week, we were exploring the weight of different objects. We started by lining up picture cards from what we thought was the lightest, to the heaviest object shown on the card. We then needed to decide whether we thought we would weigh these objects using grams, kilograms or tonnes and had to justify our answers. Next week, we’ll be exploring finding and comparing the mass of various objects using scales.

We’ve been getting crafty in P3Y this week, with many winter and Christmas themed creations! We used mixed media to create a snowy Christmas window scene using mixed paint, card and cotton buds. We think the end result was really effective and eye-catching.

We have many more exciting plans lined up for next week and can’t wait to get stuck in!

Have an excellent weekend everyone!
