P3a have been learning about the dinosaurs. We have been learning about the different periods within the Mesozoic era (Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous). We compared the differences between the dinosaur habitats in the Jurassic period and the Cretaceous period. During the Jurassic period, there were many green fern like plants with a few berries and nuts. In the Cretaceous period, flowers started to bloom and butterflies, dragonflies and bees started flying around. The children worked collaboratively to create these very impressive and creative collages, showcasing the differences between the two periods.

P3a have been learning about the digestive system and how our body gets its nutrients from our food. Inevitably, we have also learned about what happens to the food our body cannot digest. Today, we spent our morning replicating the different processes of the digestive system, ending with expelling some ‘waste products’. We had a super fun and messy morning! Here are some pictures of our fun (maybe don’t look if you are about to eat!!)

P3a have hit the ground running with our maths and numeracy. We have started the year with 2D shapes as our maths focus. We have been identifying different shapes and are now exploring how they tile. In our numeracy groups we have been doing some number work using our concrete materials. Some children have been working on partitioning 2 and 3 digit numbers. Others have been working on identifying different ways to make a number e.g. 3 and 4 or 6 and 1 both make 7. Lastly, some have been working on adding numbers over the decade.
It has been a wonderful few weeks so far and I am looking forward to sharing all the exciting learning we will be getting up to throughout the year!
