P3 - Mrs. K Sweeney

Welcome to Primary 3!

Our teacher is Miss Coyle and our classroom assistant is Mrs Hanna 😀✏️

Our topic this term is “Food.” We will be learning about where food comes from, how food is made, how we keep food fresh. the importance of healthy eating and what foods are associated with different countries. We might even have the chance to prepare and cook a range of different foods, such as sandwiches, jelly, pancakes, buns, fruit salads, pizza and more!

In Literacy we will investigate a range of writing forms, including recount and narrative. We will also be learning plural words, high frequency words, tricky words and learning fun songs to help us learn and blend different sounds. We love story time in P3 and we cant wait to listen to and read a range of exciting books and novels in the coming weeks. 

In Numeracy, we will begin by counting forwards and backwards in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s. We will continue to develop our confidence with numbers to 100 and explore 3D shapes, money, rounding to the nearest 10, data handling and vertical addition and subtraction. We have recently been logged on to Mathletics, a brilliant app to improve our mathematical abilities. Please see the front of our reading records for our individual usernames and passwords. 

In ICT we will begin to word process and use the iPad to explore a range of apps.

On a Tuesday we have PE and we will visit the library (weather permitting).

It's going to be such an exciting term and we can't wait to share it with you! 🤩
