January has been a busy month in P3! As you can see from the images below, P3F have thoroughly embraced the Pirate topic! We have followed compass directions, discovered full, quarter and half turns and even counted pirates treasure! In literacy, we have written facts about famous pirates,  designed a wanted poster, composed and performed a sea shanty and had an afternoon speaking like pirates!!! Arrrrrh! 
We worked on computers and the iPads during ICT. We discovered our pirate names, designed a pirate and used Chatterpix app to make them talk! We hope you enjoy looking through our photographs.

We made our Winter trees using scrap pieces of black paper and tearing them to create the trunk, branches and twigs.  We also discussed how most trees in Winter do not have any leaves.  The boys and girls added snow to their trees by printing with bubble wrap.  This part was a little messy but lots of fun.

Today we travelled to the Palace Stables to learn more about WW2. Many of the children dressed as evacuees and they really looked the part. One even had her teddy in her bag! We met Mr Heaney, the Evacuation Officer, who was very cross with Mrs Stockdale because the children forgot their gas masks!!! After that, Colonel Shepherd, an American GI, taught us how to drill with guns (wooden ones😉) and how to decipher codes. We really had a great day and a really good educational experience.

This week we have enjoyed mixing paints to create a sea background. We used forks, spoons and knives to spread and create a wave effect.

The children used many different materials to add effects onto a background. Tissue paper, string for rigging, card and pastel colours.

UICT- we also explored the use of Chatterpix App for adding voice over to characters.

P3 is super fun when learning new skills!

We welcomed our friends from Presentation again this week for our third, and sadly, last Shared Education lesson this week. Continuing with our theme of WW2, our topic was ‘Evacuation’ and the children learnt about why and how children were evacuated, their thoughts and feeling about this and how their lives changed. They wrote fabulous acrostic poems and finished off by making evacuee figures to take home. The children thoroughly enjoyed this lesson and are looking forward to meeting up with their new friends again, hopefully in the not too distant future.

We had a very exciting time on Monday when Alan visited us with his ‘Wee Critters’. We met a hissing a cockroach, a tarantula, a boa constrictor, Trevor the toad amongst others. Alan told us lots of interesting information about his wee critters and the rainforests in which they live. It was a fabulous morning and the children learnt lots about these little animals.
