P3A enjoy Flat Stanley activities

For World Book day we completed activities based on the Flat Stanley books.

We made 3D Stanleys. They were flattened to make Flat Stanleys. We drew around them on square paper to find out their areas.  Some of us had flatter Stanleys than others.

We used the lovely new library to partner read with P5B. P5B brought some of their favourite books to share with us.

We wrote new Flat Stanley stories, made lists of the pros and cons of being flat and also created visitor’s guides to places Stanley has visited.

Everyone enjoyed themselves on this special day. 

P3A focused on improving

Mrs Dundas and P3A have been talking about what we are struggling with in school. Now we can put effort into improving in these areas.

Spelling, 3x, 4x, and 5x tables, division, listening and ERIC (Everyone Read In Class) were all areas some of use are working on.


P3A Great Start to the New Year

We have already been working hard in 2018.  This is what some of us had to say about this week.

P3A had special visitors today!

We earned a reward by collecting a whole bowl full of marbles.

We earn marbles for getting whole class compliments for walking through the corridors quietly, following instructions, and following the school rules.

We decided to have our teddies come to school for a day. They went to music with us, reviewed number bonds in maths, and even watched us play outside during break and lunch.

Mrs Dundas was surprised with how well behaved all the teddies were in class. Everyone had a lovely day.

Audubon inspired Penguins by P3A

We looked at John Audubon’s wildlife paintings and tried to draw a penguin in his style.  We were inspired by his paintings.

We noticed that Emperor Penguins have a yellow bit on the neck.   They are majestic.  They have black on their faces. They have a curved beak.

Check this space for our finished drawings later in the month!
