In class your child is beginning to learn the songs for the Nativity. This year we will be performing “Everyone Loves a Baby.”
The Nativity will be taking place on the 11th and 12th of December. Information about tickets will be issued at a later date.
We would appreciate your support in learning the songs at home. We are cutting back on photocopies and are trying to be eco-friendly so we will not be giving out paper copies of the words this year. Instead you can find the songs on the following link

Check out our Natural Art inspired by the artist Andy Goldsworthy. We collected natural materials such as sticks, flowers and leaves. We did not pick living things as we are learning to look after and care for nature.
We worked in groups to create our own unique designs. We are very proud of what we created.
Our topic in maths over the next few weeks will be Angles. This week we looked for right angles in our Environment. We found right angles all around us, including on our picnic bench, planters, windows and many more!
Then in pairs, using sticks we created our own squares and rectangles and then used cubes to show the right angles on our shapes.
Last week at STEM club we had to create shelters using natural materials we could find in our school Forest garden. We were very creative and enjoyed sharing our designs!
Here are some snapshots of our learning from our ‘Rainforest’ topic.
We have been learning about the different layers of the rainforest and created our own models for our homework project . Our challenge was to use only recyclable and reusable items! What creative and innovative designs – well done to everyone! We enjoyed sharing our models with our classmates and with parents at sharing the learning.
We have also been learning about deforestation! We wrote persuasive letters to companies using palm oil to share our opinions and persuade them to stop!
We Created our ‘Party in the jungle’ Artwork for the art gallery which we are all very proud of!
Another busy term full of fun and exciting learning in P3H!
Here are just some pictures of what we’ve been getting up to! In maths we have been learning all about fractions!
We enjoyed our whole school ‘This is me’ week. We enjoyed exploring and embracing our differences and learning all about others!
