Last term we all really enjoyed the William Wallace topic. We especially loved the visit to the Bannockburn Experience, where we got to try on medieval armour and re-enact the battle. We also had lots of visitors to tell us about Wallace and Bruce, which we really appreciated. Thank you!
This term our literacy focus is on the Wild Robot story by Peter Brown. We will use this as a springboard to enhance our learning. The story links well to our topic of Scotland’s Wildlife. We are hoping to get outside and learn lots about the wonderful wildlife that surrounds us here at Redwell. In maths we will be looking at area, angle and grid references, as well as learning about money and change.

The term 4 topic is Scottish Wildlife but we are starting off with a whistle top tour learning all about the dinosaurs . Wow the pupils were really engaged and enjoying it!
As suggested by our title ( Jack Mc K ‘s idea) we have been learning about Subtraction. We have been doing sums such as 86- 39 by subtracting 40 and adding 1. It is not as easy as you think!
Well the boys and girls looked fabulous today. We had red noses, red clothes, red nails, red hair and red glasses! Not to mention red cheeks, especially just after break and lunch!
Busy week for us. We have been learning about the Battle of Bannock burn, more about fractions, subtraction and we planned a recount of our amazing trip. Miss Fuller has been teaching us all about sentences with a capital letter at the start and a full stop at the end. We need a little more practise but that is our target for next week. Do you think we can do it?
What a fabulous week we have had! We had a very informative and fun talk from Mr Penman all about Robert The Bruce and the Battle of Bannockburn. Then , of course we visited the Bannockburn Heritage Centre on Thursday and it was our Book Day on Friday.
What a week! Rehearsals, rehearsals and more rehearsals but it all paid off! The Primary 3 classes performed a fabulous show all about William Wallace. Luckily, we managed to fit in some fraction work, some imaginative story planning and shape work in Art.
This week we have been very busy practising for our Assembly. It is very exciting! We All have lines to learn and are working hard perfecting our acting skills! On Friday, we had a visitor from the Wallace Monument who told us all about William Wallace and the Battle of Stirling Bridge. Afterwards, we worked as a team to built our own bridges. It was hard work!
