P3 Weekly Update

We really like our new morning greeting.  Every morning we choose a greeting like hugs, high fives, fist bump, say ‘HELLO’, pinkie hug,  handshake, thumbs up and wave.

This week we have really enjoyed being creative and designing and building our castles out of 3D junk.  We painted our castles and have made stone and brick patterns on them using pastels and thick pencils.

P3a have designed a rug for the Victory Party in the Great Hall.  We used 2D shapes that tiled.  We had to make sure that they fit together with no gaps.

In Numeracy we have been dividing by 2 or some of us have been dividing by 3 with remainders.

P3 Weekly Update

This week we really enjoyed writing about a day in the life of our castle character and next week we would like to read our them to each other.

In maths we have been doing tiling and we have learned that shapes must fit together so that they tile without any gaps.  Shapes that tile:

  • rectangle
  • square
  • triangle
  • hexagon
  • diamond
  • pentagon

For World Book Day we made bookmarks to use in our ERIC books and we also have designed a new cover for our favourite book with a title and picture.  We also loved doing our library scavenger hunt.

We have been making catapults with junior mechano in science with Mr Hogben.

In technology we have been practising using Google Classroom.


P3b Ultra Update

In our learning this week we have continued to work on our simile dragon poems and we have also continued our art competition by drawing and colouring a dragon picture in the style of Steven Brown.  We also painted the castles that we made last week as part of the competition.

In Numeracy the squares and circles have been learning their 2 or 3 times tables.  The triangles have been working on our 5 plus facts by adding and subtracting with them.

With our learning teams we have been drawing some of the rooms that can be found inside the castle.  Each of us took a different room to draw and some of us wrote some information too.


P3b’s amazing news update

This week we have been working on dragons. We started writing a shape poem about dragons using similes.  Here are some of the similes we used to describe the dragon:


His eyes were red as cherries,

His eyes glowed like lava,

His eyes were as red as rubies,

His wings were as heavy as an eagle,

The fire was like boiling flames,

His magical white teeth were like a snow fairy,

His teeth are as sharp as jaggy nettles,

His claws were like an eagles sharp talon,

His skin was green and slimy like the inside of a kiwi,

His pointy, sharp, giant horns were like ginormous pointy needles.

We started our castle background for an art competition that we are taking part in. We used black pen to draw a detailed picture of our castle. Next time we are going to make a dragon to add to this.

In Maths we looked at the properties of different shapes.  We looked at and touched 3D shapes to find out about these.  We looked at the cube, cuboid, cylinder, triangular prism, sphere, square based pyramid and a cone.
