P3 have been exceptionally busy in their first term of Primary 3. Here is a wee snapshot of what we have been up to:
We have been learning to include VCOP in our writing to make it magical, magnificent and extremely delightful (some of the words P3 have added to our WOW wall!). We have also been making posters thinking about layout, key information and making them eye-catching!
We have read some very funny books like The Twits and There’s a Pharaoh in my Bath!
We have spent a long time deepening our understanding of number and increasing the range of numbers we know. We are now read to move on to looking at addition and subtraction strategies! Yay!
We have been enjoying working with 2D and 3D shapes and moving on to using directional language. We have been using angles, compass points and grid references to help us follow and give directions. We even created our own town map to help us!
HEALTH AND WELLBEING
We looked at and worked on developing our growth mindsets. We thought about mistakes and how they are a part of learning, discussed the learning pit and what is says about how we learn, and found out about successful people who never gave up! We have also been focussing on the value of respect and we will be continuing to grow a garden of respect in our classroom!
In ICT we have been practising out Google Doc skills. We looked at changing fonts, using old and underline and even adding pictures! We created tremendous posters that we are very proud of!
As you probably know, P3 were discovering all about Ancient Egypt. We became Egyptians! We made papyrus paper, mummified tomatoes, wrote in hieroglyphs and used Egyptian numbers and even danced like Egyptians! We also found out lots about Egyptian Gods, Tutankhamun and ever held ACTUAL Egyptian artefacts at the Museum! We have thoroughly enjoyed our topic, so much so, that we are going to be doing our assembly after the October break on it!
We have been learning all about the days of the week, months of the year and numbers to 31 in French. We will soon be able to say the date each morning! How exciting. Also, we found out lots about the country France on European Languages Day! C’est super!
Here are a selection of photos from the term. I have everyone has a lovely relaxing week! 🙂
