Shape Activities

P3 made up riddles about shapes and got their partners to guess the answers. They also sorted solid shapes in different ways. They had to think of sorting criteria. For example - 3 or more vertices / less than 3 vertices, 4 or more faces / less than 4 faces.

Shape Posters

P3 worked in twos or threes to make a poster. They could choose any 3D shape. Their poster had to include as many facts about the shape as they could discover and an illustration. They presented their posters to the class and then posed for photos!

Our trip to Lough Neagh Discovery Centre

We moved like minibeasts, we hunted for minibeasts, we observed birds, we explored pondlife, we shopped and of course we played in the park! Check out Mrs Dawson's class page for more photos.

Shape and Space Activities

Turning

The children were given sets of 4 identical images which they cut out and glued down to show a series of turns - a quarter turn, half turn, three quarter turn and full turn in a clockwise direction.

Pattern making

This task required the children to continue a shape pattern, create a pattern with specified shapes and finally to create a pattern with a specified number of selected shapes. As you can see, some like to think and do and others like to collaborate. The final part of this task certainly stimulated thinking and problem solving skills.

Giving Directions

The children formulated directions to retrieve items on a grid. They used these directions to send the constructobot to the correct location. You can see their willingness to learn from mistakes and work together in this task.

Directions

In this task, the children followed sets of directions and recorded the final destinations of their cars on the grid. Then they had to work out and write their own sets of instructions to reach specified destinations.

Junk People!

During one of our discussions about what we wanted to do in our topic, the children suggested making themselves out of junk. Today they organised themselves into groups, pairs or individuals to create junk people.

Lucy McAdam and Poppie decided to work on their own creations but lent each other a hand when it was needed. Caira, Rhea, Theo and Skye worked well as a team, especially with the taping. Alfie and Nate included a heart in their junk model of Bob. Niamh, Evie and Hannah were very creative with their character's legs! Will and Max solved the leg problem with a sitting character and so did Max Dane, James, Sam and Callum. Erin, Lucy McCleary and Sophie situated their character in a chair with a remote control eating a box of chocolates! Aaron and Jack were thinking outside and inside the box to make their character. Well done P3

Dr Neil visited P3 today to answer questions about how our bodies work. The children wrote the questions themselves and picked them out of a box to ask the doctor. Thank you Dr Neil!

P3 walked down to visit the optician this week. They had a great time sitting in the optician's chair and hearing about how to look after their eyes. A big thank you to Julie Robinson for accommodating us once again.
