Hello from P3!
This week we were focusing on subtraction in numeracy. We learned that there is different language used for taking away numbers and it all means the same thing. We played ICT games, worked together and did some work out our text book. We all did really well! We are also learning to tell the time using both digital and analogue clocks.
We began to learn note taking this week. We watched a PowerPoint about why the Romans invaded Britain and used our notes to write 4 paragraphs. This was a factual piece of writing. When taking notes, we learned that you don’t need to write sentences, just words, phrases or bullet points which we can later turn into proper sentences.
We made a super timeline which stretches the length of our class, all about the Romans in Britain and Scotland. We found out they never actually conquered Scotland because it was too cold, we were too fierce and it was too full of midges! We are making ‘wanted’ posters for another fierce Celt, a lady called Boudicca. We also looked at the Roman gods that the planets are named after. We used non-fiction books to find facts about the god and the planet. We learned about rotation and revolution of the earth. We know rotation gives us night and day and revolution gives us our year. Because the earth is spinning in a tilted axis, we learned this gives us seasons.
The Benchball festival is on Wednesday 29th Nov. Please come dressed in tracksuit bottoms. We will change into our t-shirts in school and wear our sweatshirts on the walk to the academy.
