We are busy as it gets near Christmas. Our topic is Our Grandparents, we have been busy chatting to them to find out about the past and what life was like when they were small. It has been fun to look at old photos and see what they looked like when they were small. We made collages of them and wrote acrostic poems. We will be writing them letters and heading to the postbox to post them. We are busy rehearsing for our Keystage 1 Christmas show ' A King is Born' and P3 are the shepherds, sheep, inn keepers, dancing camels and Roman soldiers. We did a 'STEAM' challenge and had to work in pairs to make a Christmas tree which we could hang a bauble on, we only had a polystyrene cup, 7 lollipop sticks, 2 pipecleaners and masking tape. We were very creative and there was a lot of teamwork and talking and designing.
Term 1 is exciting as we welcome the new P3's.
It is a busy term getting to know the new routines, remember class rules, and starting into our work.
In P3 we like to always try our best as our motto is 'It is okay not to know but it is not okay not to try!'
Remember your learning is all about you- so let's be good listeners so you can be an expert learner.
Our topics this term are 'Our world' and 'Grandparents' and then the term becomes busy with Christmas.
It is also important to work really hard on our sounds, common words, reading and mental maths as these are the building blocks of everything we do.
