Hello from P3!
In literacy we learned about functional writing. In our class castle there lies magic! We decided to share this magic and write spells that you could order from a catalogue. There are some strange and wonderful spells for sale in P3! We also chose a character from our book and asked open questions to him or her in relation to the story. We answered what we thought the character would say.
In maths we finished our medieval themed Bluebot mats and challenged each other to find directions using vocabulary such as left, right, forwards, backwards, clockwise, anti-clockwise, north, south east and west. Some of us also learned about turning 45, 90, 180, 270 and 360 degrees. In numeracy we were revising fractions, division and times tables.
For our class castle, we drew portraits of the staff and made big chunky frames for them as no castle is complete unless it is full of portraits! We are in the process of making frames for the portraits, big chunky gold frames. We also learned about technical drawing and drew plans of the castle; a plan is a bird’s eye view. We had some interesting rooms in our drawings, including a haunted room!
P3 quite often watch and discuss Newsround with milk, but not every day. We also have a class novel that the teacher reads. This week because of the sensitive events, we did not watch Newsround as the news was very upsetting. Our teacher said if we wanted to watch it, ask parents and discuss this topic at home. Many thanks.
