This week In P3a

This week we have been finding out about King William, the Duke of Normandy building one of the first castles.

We also created an animal shape poem. We had to trace round the outline of an animal and then write inside it. We tried to include similes, onomatopoeia, adjectives, connectives and alliteration – so we really had to think, but are getting good at creating our own ideas.

We have been looking at literal questions and inferential questions too using a text. We know that the answer to a literal question is found in the text, but you have to use clues in the text to work out the answer to an inferential question.

Have a good weekend!

P3a Learning

!We have been doing lots of learning this week!

This week we started to think about our new topic – Castles. We have completed a Think, Puzzle, Explore to find out what we think know, and came up with questions to explore!

 We have also been looking at poetry. We have looked at Acrostic poems and shape poems, and have even started to write some of our own poems including similes, alliteration and onomatopoeias.

We have been looking at multiplication though arrays too.

In PE we have started to learn about Gymnastic  Rolls, its been fun… even though some of the rolls are hard we are using our growth mind-set.

Christmas Show P3a

Yesterday we finished our class novel – The Enchanted Wood! We really enjoyed it.  We based our Christmas show on the story, using some of the ideas from the book. We created ‘The Land of Christmas’ and performed our little show to Parents and carers.  We also sang some Christmas songs  – It was good fun and we all enjoyed it!

We are in the Christmas spirit now! Today we wore Christmassy accessories and jumpers too!

Christmas Jumper Day Friday 15th December

On Friday 15 December we’re inviting all pupils to take part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

The whole school and nursery will be taking part, with everyone getting the chance to show the world their silly side by wearing their favourite festive knits for the day.

We’re asking pupils to make a £1 donation, or whatever they can give, to help save children’s lives around the world.

The money they raise will help Save the Children give the world’s forgotten children a brighter future. It could help bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support.

And you won’t need to splash out on snazzy new sweaters to join in the fun – simply decorate an old woolly to create your own crafty masterpiece, or wear something festive.

We’d really appreciate your help to make Christmas Jumper Day a huge success.

With your support we’re looking forward to a woolly great day!
