Preparations are well underway for Christmas in P2/3! We have been practising for the Christmas show perfecting our singing voices, our acting and our narrating. We are very excited for you all to see it on Tuesday.
We also got to make some Christmas Crafts today to be sold at the Christmas Fair next week. We had great fun creating lots of lovely items with lots of glitter! Thank you to the parents who helped us and we can wait to see them for sale next Friday.
This week we have been exploring strategies for subtraction in numeracy. We have been practising using a number line and using known facts. This has helped us in our independent work and also when we are playing games with our peers.
We enjoyed exploring shape in art, looking at a variety of artists who used shape in their work. We tried to recreate our own version of Kandinsky’s circles using pastels and complementary colours. Although it was very messy we had great fun!
As part of our STEM area this week, we had the train set which was really popular with our class. There was some super teamwork and problem solving alongside some great imagination deciding where the trains were travelling to!
P2/3 have had a great week including learning with a Halloween theme.
During our outdoor learning time, we completed a technologies challenge to create a broomstick. We worked in groups using natural materials from outside to build the broomstick alongside resources to stick and hold it together. The team work was super and the finished broomsticks were excellent.
Continuing our Halloween theme, we had great fun writing a letter to The Wicked Witch to persuade her to buy a haunted house that was for sale. There were lots of spooky ideas about what the house would look like including some very scary adjectives!
