P2/3 – Mr Walker

Welcome to P2/3

This term we have been learning lots of useful skills! The children have been developing their reading comprehension by showing their understanding of what they have read in different ways. This could be re-writing the sentence, drawing it or rephrasing it out loud. In their writing, they have been creating balanced arguments. Sharing their opinions about a variety of subjects. They have come up with amazing title questions to give their own arguments about. Some of these great questions included; Grapes or Strawberries?, Dogs or Cats? Beach or Park? Reading or playing?. I wonder which one you would argue is the best!
Our main focuses this term have been measure and addition and subtraction. The children have engaged of a variety of different strategies to solve addition and subtraction calculations. They have counted on, counted back, skip counted, used concrete materials and many more. The children have shown their knowledge using think boards to illustrate a variety of strategies that they have learned to help solve the calculations. Measure has included everything water and anything measurable with a ruler. They began by using non-standard measuring methods. Using their hands, feet, pencils, cubes, teddies. To measure a variety of classroom objects. They have begun to use rulers with standard measurements and are measuring liquid volumes with jugs and scales.
As we move closer to Christmas, P2/3 have been busy elves too! This terms Inter disciplinary focus has been the ‘Festive Fun’ enterprise. Both P2 and P2/3 collaborated to develop a product, design it, create a pitch to sell the items and sold them at the Winter Fayre. Through voting and using our balanced argument skills, the children decided on laser cut wooden baubles along with Christmas or Grinch slime. Quite the mix of product choices but they came out glittery, beautiful, slimy and stretchy. A lot of fun and a great success! I believe P2 and P2/3 are full of future entrepreneurs.

Together We Learn. Together We Achieve.
