P3/4

Hello / Hola everyone! 

What a busy but brilliant start we have had to this 2021-2022 school year! Time for our first update on what P3/4 have been doing at school.

I have to say I am blown away by how well the class have settled into their classroom and daily routines! We are regularly seeing the children treat each other with kindness and consideration which is wonderful to see. I am overwhelmed each day with offers of help for jobs around the classroom and school. Thank you.

Our topic this term is ‘Once Upon a Time’ and we had a bit of rocky start with a break in to our Jack and the Beanstalk reading area and a theft of the golden goose and the golden eggs! The children have been retelling the story using actions, story mapping, shared and independent writing. We have been word and sentence building each morning and focusing on capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We have compared different stories and written character profiles using adjectives.

In Numeracy, we have been focusing on using the Numicon to aid our understanding of numberlines to 20 and addition and subtraction within 20. We have also been identifying 2D shapes by naming them and finding out how many sides and vertices they have. We have thought about symmetry and discovered examples of symmetry in nature.

Our ICT, role play, construction and creative skills are all developing on Monday afternoons when we take part in activity based learning. On Thursdays we get outside for our outdoor learning and are delighted to have new resources such as our writing table and have lots of projects in the pipeline! 

We have elected our school and Eco council members who I’m sure will do a super job of listening to the other pupils ideas and communicating them forward to staff for school improvements.

We take the register daily in Spanish and love taking part in games, songs and stories in Spanish during a fun Friday!
