We have been very busy in P3 this week! We feel that we are all into a great routine and enjoying opportunities to delve deeper into our learning. We have focussed on many interesting curricular areas and we’re very proud of our achievements this week.
During our maths lessons, we have been learning a new strategy to help us with our addition. We can now identify many different ways to make 10’s and apply our knowledge to different types of problems and multi-step questions. We have also been working on our times tables, and we are very confident in counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s! (Josh)
We have spent time this week practicing our spelling words and challenged ourselves to a test on Thursday. Everyone was really pleased with how well they did, it shows us that taking time to practice pays off (Vincent). We have finished our first class novel, Georges Marvellous Medicine. We really enjoyed this book and to demonstrate our understanding and knowledge of the story, we have each written sentences to extend the final chapter. We used picture plans to help us remember details to include in our sentences. (Amelia)
All of our hard work for our interdisciplinary learning (IDL) topic, Democracy Fortnight, was shown on Thursday during our speeches and presentations of our campaign posters. It was very interesting hearing everyone’s speech and finding out their reasons to why they think they should be voted as class representatives for the pupil groups. We each voted for the best candidate for the role and Mrs Penman announced the winners during Friday’s assembly. We were so pleased for all those that won but also very proud that every member of our class took part (Olivia).
There are so many more wonderful things to come from this hardworking, enthusiastic class – stay tuned! Miss Young.
