Welcome to P3!

P3 is a fun, hardworking class! We strive to develop each child’s independence, gifts and talents through lots of different learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. We recognise and celebrate each child’s unique personality through our daily ‘Pupil of the Day’ in our PATHS programme.

Throughout the year, in our exciting topics, we find out all about our bodies and how we can keep healthy, we follow Paddington on his adventures looking at all the different kinds of animals he sees, we explore space and we study all sorts of mini-beasts.

We build on literacy work aiming to have confident readers and writers benefitting from phonic knowledge gained through our Sounds Write programme.

We enjoy a practical, ‘hands on’ approach in numeracy encouraging the boys and girls to think for themselves, challenge themselves and problem solve.

Throughout the year the class have lots of opportunities to use ICT to help with learning: using the Reading Eggs and Mathletics apps for homework; exploring with Spheros and Beebots in play; becoming familiar with green screen, animation and film making tools; using iPads to extend and consolidate learning.

In P3 the boys and girls are at the centre of everything we do!

Welcome to the Autumn Term in P3!

We are so happy to be back in school and we are really looking forward to having lots of fun together this year. This term, to begin with, we will be spending a bit of time getting used to being in a new classroom and adapting to our new routines. We will have loads of time to talk about what we’ve been up to and how we are feeling and of course, time to play and be outside.

Our topic is ‘Who Am I?’. We will be exploring how we grow, move and use our senses. We will find out about where we live and think about places further away and the people who live there. We will write about and create pictures of ourselves and even our skeletons! We will think about how our childhood is different from the childhood of our grannies and grandads. We might even see some baby photos when we create our own timelines!

In Literacy we will be completing lots of different writing activities, creating poems and looking at the genre of Instructions.

In Numeracy we will be revising addition and subtraction within 20 before we move onto learning about numbers up to 100. We will also be doing lots of work on time and problem solving.

As well as all of this, and much, much more, we can’t wait to get started!
