This week in P3A

Literacy- This week we have been revising the sound ‘ee’. We have also learned about past tense irregular verbs. We learned that not all verbs follow the regular rule such as drink becomes drank. Which mean this is an irregular past tense. We have been using Christmas adverts for our stimulus for writing and trying to add connectives and adjectives.

Numeracy- We have focused on multiplication working in equal groups to work out the answer. We also focused on arrays. Next week we will continue to focus on multiplication where we will look at repeated addition.

Music- This week we started to learn Christmas songs. We have been working really hard on our performing skills which we can’t wait to showcase this to you and show you our really hard work.

Literacy- We were learning all about regular past tense verbs. We have been changing verbs into past tense verbs by following the rule we have learned.

This week our sound is a-e. We have been revising this sound and trying to sort out ‘ai’ ‘ay’ and ‘a-e’ words.

We have also been continuing to use adjectives and connectives. This have been making our writing more interesting and we will be working on this really hard up until the Christmas holidays.

Numeracy- This week we have been focusing on learning about symmetry. We know that to make something symmetrical it must be the same at both sides. We have been looking at creating our own symmetrical image and sharing it with our friends and finding symmetry in different shapes.

IDL- We have been learning all about the steps of mummification and have been creating our own Egyptian collars.

This Week in P3A

Literacy- Our sound of the week has been ‘ai’. We have been practising reading different ‘ai’ words and using different spelling strategies to support our learning. We now understand the differences between ‘ay’ and ‘ai’. We have also been looking to add connectives into our writing to make our writing more interesting. We have been adding in ‘and’, ‘but’ and ‘or’ into our writing.

Numeracy- We have been working really hard on our fractions looking at halves, quarters, thirds and fifths within shapes and numbers. We have even been drawing on the tables to support our active learning (don’t worry it is all cleaned up now!). We are super confident with our fractions and can’t wait to show you our learning.

HWB- We have been looking at healthy and unhealthy drinks to see how much sugar we consume when we are drinking. We spoke about the importance of a balanced diet when we are drinking and what the sugar can do to our body. We have been trying really hard to make good choices when it comes to drinking juice and water.

We have also been learning about the irregular verb ‘to be’. We found this really tricky to start with but we are now more confident with this.

Our sound of the week this week was ‘ay’.

Numeracy- We have been learning how to subtract using partitioning. We are now very good at adding and subtracting using this method.

We understand that the big hand on an analogue clock is the minutes hand and the small hand is the hours. We have been learning all about o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. We have found this really hard to understand at the beginning of the week but we are now time masters!
