We’ve had another busy week in P3A.
We are still enjoying our class novel and are looking forward to telling everyone all about owls at our Assembly.
I have learned that although barn owls have good hearing you can’t see their ears. (E McK)
I know that barn owls sleep during the day and hunt at night. (BMcL)
Barn owls have a heart shaped ruff on their faces. (EO’G)
We enjoyed our writing lesson this week. We learned about similes and used them to make lots of comparisons.
Here are some examples:
I am as slow as a snail climbing a wall. (J U)
I am as slow as a crawling ant. (B Mc L)
I am as quick as a peregrine falcon flying across the sky. (BL)
I am as large as a giant climbing up the beanstalk (L Mc C)
I am happy like a hamster on his wheel. (ES)
We had Mrs Duggie for Music on Tuesday.
We practised keeping a steady beat while singing. ( Listen listen here I come Someone special gets the drum) LMcK
We have to practise the beat while shopping with our families. We will show you at the shops! (I C)
This is the first week where our special person gets to talk to the class about their interests and their favourite possessions. We have filled in a trophy for W to tell him how much we know and like about him. Another person will be selected next week.
This week we have been learning about our rights. We have learnt that we have the right to play, to be warm, to have an education and to be cared for. We also made a poster about our wants and needs.
Ava said, “I’d like to learn more about our rights.”
Rosie said, “our rights are help us to be safe.”
Edward said, “we have the right to play.”
Dylan said, “we have a right to learn.”
Zara said, “we have a right to be cared for.”
Olivia said, “I thought it was really fun.”
Alfie said, “can we learn more about education?”
This is our first Blog.
Every week we will tell you all about our learning, achievements and the fun we’re having in Primary 3.
This week we have enjoyed reading The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark. This book tells us about Plop who is a little baby owl. Plop is afraid of the dark and he has started to ask different people about what the dark means to them.
I think this book will help people who are afraid of the dark. (JA)
This book gives us lots of information about owls. (WS)
We wrote animal adventures stories. We tried to use interesting vocabulary and to remember to add the correct punctuation.
I wrote about a cheetah who didn’t want to run. He had lots of adventures while he was learning to run! (IL)
I wrote about a cat going on a treasure hunt. The story started when he found a treasure map in a bottle. (MM)
We’ve picked really good names for our Literacy groups. We have chosen Dolphins, Sharks and Seals.
Our maths groups are 3D shape names: Prisms, Spheres and Cylinders.
We have been very busy with our class charter. We have chosen a rainbow theme to display our rights.
The rights we are focussing on are:
- Every child has the right to an Education.
- Every child is free to say what they think and to seek and receive all kinds of information.
- Every child has the right to good health.
We have chosen to research the ancient Egyptians for our Topic. We are all really looking forward to finding out about Pharaohs, mummies and pyramids.
