In P3 we have had an exciting start to the new school year, getting to know each other and making new friends.
We have enjoyed learning about ourselves through our theme ‘All About Me’ and have learnt about many different body parts, our 5 main senses and how to look after ourselves. We investigated how we change as we grow older and learn to do more things.
In October we went on an Autumn walk in the school grounds and saw many interesting things, including berries, apples, bird boxes and different species of birds.
In mental maths we have all been learning how to use counting on/counting back to add and subtract quickly and easily in our head. We have also been collecting data and using this to create block graphs and pictograms. We enjoyed sorting many different items using Venn and Carroll diagrams.
We have also been learning how to write an interesting recount and how important it is to use special words such as time connectives and adjectives. We have written recounts of our holidays, our weekend news and our Autumn walk.
We have had some very interesting visitors in our classroom as well- a dentist and optician who both gave us some excellent advice about looking after our teeth and eyes. On the last week of half term we had our harvest service, where we shared in songs, poems and prayers to celebrate and be thankful for everything God had given us.
