P3 Learning

We have been exploring 2D shapes and 3D objects in class over the past few weeks. The following game can be used to guess the name of the hidden shape: https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/shiftingShapes/index.html

Also, we have examined how different shapes fit together to make different patterns. In class, we made our own tiling patterns by drawing around shapes. This weblink also allows learners the opportunity to make their own tiling patterns: https://apps.mathlearningcenter.org/pattern-shapes/

In spelling, we have been further exploring different spelling patterns including those with long vowel patterns. Forest Phonics is a useful online game which reinforces the spelling of words with the sounds we are covering in class. https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/forestPhonics/index.html

P3 2021/22 Term 2

P.E.

Mr Glass will be teaching P3 P.E. every Monday and Friday. These lessons will take place indoors and your child should come dressed appropriately. We are asking the children to come to school in a more relaxed school uniform on the two days that they will now have PE.   This means that the children should come to school in their school sweatshirt/cardigan and underneath they should have a t-shirt which can be worn for PE.   For bottoms – leggings or joggers are fine (with shorts underneath if this is best for your child).All children should change in to indoor shoes which can be worn in the classroom and in the gym hall.   The best shoes for this are black plimsolls (rubbers).   If changing to indoor trainers, then these should be white soled.
