P3 – Ms Walker

Welcome to P3

The children have settled into their new class well and we are almost there with all the routines and systems we have to remember!

Our topic for the rest of this term and continuing in term 2 is ‘Extreme Earth’.  This is an exciting topic which looks at volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis and tornadoes.   The children will enjoy looking at amazing footage and carrying out experiments to replicate these extreme forces.

Literacy – we have already studied a famous picture by George Seurat and used this to write some lovely descriptive writing, as well as create some great pointillism art work.  Our next writing focus will be on poetry, using the production of The Secret Garden as a stimulus.

Numeracy – we have been looking at place value and understanding the value of numbers. We have been counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s and we will be using these skills in our next Maths focus –  Money.

Health and Well being – We are focusing on Core Values which include Responsibility, Honesty, Respect and differences.
