Welcome to P3!
Ahoy there! This term our topic is ‘Pirates’. Our crew members have been learning all about famous pirates, locations around the world they visited and life on board a pirate ship. We’ve even created our own pirates!
We continue to write our weekend news every Monday and the children have been building on their phonic knowledge to develop their spellings. The children are enjoying reading in class and use their reading strategies well. We have been reading a range of texts, including fiction and non-fiction. Linked to our topic, we have been writing Wanted posters, messages in bottles and diary entries of pirates on board the Jolly Roger.
In Numeracy we are learning about estimating a number of objects (for our buried treasure), counting money and all sorts of facts about numbers up to 100.
Also, if you wish to support your children at home in maths, encourage them to practise counting in steps of one, two, five and ten, recalling pairs of numbers that add up to 10 and, if appropriate, 20 and 100, and undertaking practical tasks such as board games where the children must count on and back, creating art work using different shapes, weighing ingredients for cooking, paying for items in shops and telling the time.
Our PE days are a Wednesday and a Friday and the PE kit needs to be in school at all times. Please ensure your child has well-fitting trainers or PE shoes too.
Please support your child with their homework.
It is suggested that your child reads for a minimum of five times a week for around ten minutes each session- little and often is usually best! Please comment in and sign your child’s reading record every time they read to you.
