Welcome to P3
Mrs Dunlop and Mrs Nicholson are our teachers
Our topic this term is ‘Healthy Me’ and we have been learning about how to stay fit and healthy.
We looked at the importance of doing exercise, washing our hands to get rid of germs and eating a balanced diet.
We enjoyed choosing different colours of paint to use when we made fruit faces. We used sliced fruit to print faces. It was interesting seeing the shapes that each fruit created.
As part of our ‘Healthy Me’ topic we set up a pharmacy in our play area. We took on different roles such as a doctor, a nurse, a receptionist, a pharmacist or a patient.
We learned all about what a prescription was and why people get x-rays.
We followed a set of instructions explaining how to make a fruit salad. It was fun preparing the food and tasting it!
In maths we have been sorting lots of objects into sets using Venn and Carroll diagrams.
As part of maths week we have been outdoors working on our counting in 2's and 10's. It was a lot of fun collecting sticks and leaves to sort them into groups.
We have lots of opportunities for learning through play. We enjoy using our fishing rods to catch some of our spelling words. We put the words into sentences on whiteboards. We also use scrabble letters, bananagrams and magnetic letters to spell different words.
