We have been very busy with our Nativity rehearsals this month, but still we have managed to squeeze in a lot of learning. Our comprehension focus has been retrieving information from a text and we have been working on this skill through our non-fiction texts while we create books about cold lands animals on the iPads. We have also been learning about money, time, symmetry and weight.
Here are some facts we have learned about cold land animals:
Dylan - Polar bears live near snow and ice.
Nicole - Killer whales hunt penguins.
Max - Arctic foxes eat lemmings.
Rhys - Polar bears have 42 sharp teeth.
Katie - Artic foxes are white in the winter and brown in the summer.
Jamie - Artic foxes dive into the snow to catch lemmings.
Carson - Artic foxes can run fast.
Blake - Polar bears have to be stealthy to keep on the ice.
Noah - A polar is a mammal.
Have a look at our STEM challenges below, where we made igloos. We also made some cold lands environments where we had to hide our creatures.
Children In Need
To help raise money for the wonderful charity, Children In Need, we wore spotty clothes, had spots painted on our face and guessed the number of spots in the picture. To end the spoc-tacular day, we worked on our fine motor skills and patterning by colouring pictures of Pudsey.
Welcome back, we hope everyone had a lovely half term break.
This half term, our topic is all about Cold Lands. We have lots of exciting things planned for this topic and there will be lots of investigations and fact finding.
Here is a little snippet of what we have done so far:
Our learning through Superheroes has continued and we have really enjoyed this topic. Here are some thoughts about our tasks by P3:
Katie: "We have been learning about superhero capes. We talked about the best materials that we could use to make a cape."
Kobi: "We have been learning about the characteristics of superheroes, such as strength or speed."
Kelsey: "We have been learning about Pop Art through our superhero topic, we created art pieces with superhero sound words like boom, zoom, and zap."
The children have really been enjoying learning through our Superhero topic. They have been working hard to design their own Superhero passports, exploring using magnets by building a Magnetic Maze and engaging in small world and role play situations, playing heroes and villains alike!
Have a look at some pictures below to get an idea of what we have been up to.
Welcome back to our wonderful P3s. We have been settling back into classroom routines well after a lovely Summer break.
We are very excited to our new topic for the term is Superheroes! A new topic for all of us and we are sure it will be an exciting one.
We have made excellent starts to our learning in other areas too, including meeting Pog the Predictor to help us in our comprehension and creating graphs in maths.
We can't wait to keep you updated as our learning continues.
