P3 Get Scientific


Following on from our great workshop with Generation Science last week, P3 have been observing another experiment and will be writing about the process and results. Ask them about the “Dancing Sultanas”!

We have started a new topic on “Food and Farming”, starting off with talking about what food means to us, our favourite meals and where we think the food we eat comes from. Look out for more on this in following weeks.

P3A are hosting this week’s class assembly on Friday morning with an introduction to Outdoor Classroom Day (17th May). Parents/Carers of P3A, we hope you will be able to come along and be part of the audience. The assembly starts at 9.20am in the main hall.

You will have received an email explaining that we are stopping our regular homework after this week and focusing on the Reading Challenge. As well as enjoying reading at home, this will involve book-related activities in the classroom. We will be sending home the Reading Passports so that the children can add any books they might not have noted down in the homework diaries.

Don’t forget that next Monday (7th May) is a holiday and that Tuesday is an In-Service Day for the staff, so children should return to school on Wednesday 9th May.

Here is this week’s homework:

  • Reading   See individual reading/homework diaries/jotters.
  • Reading Challenge – Please keep noting any books read at home and see recent parent mail for more information.
  • Spelling – Please learn this week’s spelling pattern and complete a spelling activity. Our spelling check will be on Thursday this week – please make sure that spelling jotters are in school that day!.
  • Maths – This week, the three classes are doing different maths topics: P3A are doing estimating and rounding, P3B are learning about the properties of 2D shapes and P3C are multiplying two digit numbers by 2. We will also be revising the times tables we have learned this year. Here is a tablet-friendly game to play to practise the 2, 5 and 10 times tables – try 3 and 4 if you want a challenge and if you already know those, have a go at the others.

And here is the child-friendly plan:
