23.10.19: We are excited for this term's new topic of Superheroes. We will be doing LOTS of art this term around this theme.


25.9.19: We have been practising for our sharing assembly about Romans and Celts.This video is our first video for the project ‘Hands of the World’. This is a makaton based project with schools from all over the world.



We decided to practise a dress rehearsal outside, to get ourselves in the mood for our assembly.






18.9.19: Nicholas and Anna chatted today about what P2 have been learning. The children are currently preparing a show about the Romans for parents and the community. Mrs Cochrane is going to help them make Roman shields and helmets in Art. In Maths, they have been halving and doubling numbers. In Big Write they have been writing about how to be healthy, and in PE they have been improving their throwing and catching skills with beanbags. They have also regularly been doing their Daily Mile around the playground.


4.9.19: Logan and Lewis chatted today about what they have been learning in class. P3 have been working on their Class Charter, which has a Roman theme. The children have been making Roman shields for the Charter and have been exploring children's rights using the UNCRC. They are focussing on the right to have a house and a comfy bed, and the right to play. In Maths the children have been learning the ten times table. They have also done a Big Write about themselves, describing their favourite and least favourite foods etc. In PE with Mr Marshall they have been playing ball games, whilst in Art, with Mrs Cochrane, they have been learning how to bubble write the initials of their names. Mrs Cochrane is going to help the children to make Roman armour and shields too. With Miss Figures, the children have been drawing their own faces to put onto Roman coins. The whole class has "Smart Start" first thing in the morning, which are jobs they do when they first get into class.


Homework will be handed out on a Tuesday each week, to be returned the following Monday.



Welcome to P3! A fabulous first day with everyone enjoying themselves and getting stuck in! Looking forward to a fantastic and exciting year.
