P3X News

Can you believe that we’re already heading towards Easter! We’ve been so busy the February break seems ages ago!

 We’ve been working hard learning all about Fair Trade since the holidays to celebrate Fair Trade Fortnight. We’ve been down to Tesco’s to see what kind of Fairtrade products we have on offer locally – many thanks to the parents who accompanied us on this!

We’ve also been learning more about global geography and climates by using ICT and atlases to help us understand why coffee grows where it does. Through all kinds of cooperative and interdisciplinary learning, we have carried out activities as diverse as writing a Fair Trade sketch to designing a new Fair Trade chocolate bar to designing their own real-life Fairtrade cotton shopping bags! These will be on sale soon!

 P3 will soon be moving on to a big science focus. Following on from the hugely successful Generation Science workshop, we will be investigating Forces and Magnetism to gain a better understanding of the world around us. Lots of experiments to carry out for those budding Jimmy / Jemima Neutrons!
