Here is a wee look at our learning for the week. Just click on the link as usual.
Please help your child by practising times tables with them. This will greatly increase their confidence and fluency.
They have also been enjoying times tables songs. Here is the site we have been using – just copy and paste it into Google. Enjoy!

A little note to let you all know that next week at Mauchline Primary there is a BIG week ahead!
We are celebrating Scottish Book Week and all children in P3 will receive a Read, Write, Count bag full of goodies to help promote reading. I hope you all enjoy these very much.
We are also promoting Anti-Bullying Week. During this week, we are running an Acts of Kindness Class Competition. All children will receive a record sheet and for every act of kindness noted on their sheet, they will put a bead into a jar in their class. The class who collects the most beads will win a prize.
All P3 have already been given a competition to enter for Road Safety Week, which is also this week. They have to design a poster showing a Road Safety Superhero. These have to be posted in the JRSO box near the ICT area.
Here is a sneaky peak at our learning for the week:
There is a school sweatshirt (age 7/8) and a red George Asda tank top (age 7/8) in our class that no-one in P3 is claiming. Can you check at home to see if these belong to your child and I will send them to you?
Here are the children playing with their weather fortune tellers:

Hello everyone I hope you had a lovely weekend and are looking forward to the week ahead. P3 are certainly excited about Hallowe’en coming up soon. I hope you all have lots of fun celebrating.

I know that everyone is busy, but please can I ask for your help with the children’s Active Literacy words that they bring home?
If you could go over reading and spelling the words at home that would be so beneficial to their learning. The children are taught the new phoneme words on a Monday and the tricky words on a Wednesday, but they need to practise these at home. If they could copy twice at home, in their best handwriting, and compete a task from their activity sheet that would be very much appreciated. There are instructions in their Literacy Homework jotters.
Thanking you for your help.

Here are some of the fantastic lighthouses that P3 made as part of their IDL The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch.

Hello P3 and a HUGE welcome to our Blog for August 2021.
A little update about our PE dates for this term:
PE with Mrs Scarisbrick will be on a Wednesday and this will start with gymnastics in the hall. Children will need suitable footwear for the gym hall. Children can take part wearing their trousers and the girls, if they wear a skirt or pinafore, can wear shorts underneath if they wish. All jewellery must be removed for their lesson.
On a Thursday, PE will take place outdoors, weather permitting. Children will need suitable footwear for this.
P3 are welcome to leave a labelled bag with their PE kit on their pegs in the P3 cloakroom to save them carrying it back and forth.
We have had a lovely start to P3, playing getting to know you games, setting our routines and creating a Class Charter. I am sure we are going to have a fabulous year having fun learning together.
My name is Mrs Norman and I am going to be your Primary 3 teacher. I am very excited to meet you all, but a bit disappointed that we cannot yet do this yet in person in our P3 classroom.
So that I can find out a bit more about you, I have a little job that I need you to do and bring back to school when it is finished. Complete it as neatly and as colourfully as you can – make it a masterpiece!
The job is called All About Me and when I read it I will then know lots of details about you; e.g. the really important people in your life, the things you are good at and enjoy doing, what helps you to learn etc.
I can give a copy to your P2 teacher or if you want to print it out at home just click on the link below.
I am really excited to meet you all to begin the fun and exciting things we will be learning about in Primary 3. See you in August!
