Mr Chambers (Sam’s dad) visited our classroom this week to tell us about our skeletons, his job and how to keep our bodies healthy.   Kyle

He told us to always sit down with a curve on the back of our spine and our tummy sticking out the front. Euan

Mr Chambers taught us some exercises to help us keep a good posture. This is very important because if we don’t have a good posture we will have sore necks, shoulders and backs when we are older. Lexi

Some people crouch down when they are playing on the computer or video games. This is really bad for your neck. My dad is always telling me to sit up properly!      Sam

We have been doing exercises for our postures. Mr Chambers also talked about our core muscles. We are learning about these during our gymnastics lessons.     Molly

Mr Chambers showed us different bones on Sid the skeleton. He also told us about our muscles. Leaah

Mrs Chambers said that to be healthy we should: do lots of exercises, have a good posture, eat healthy food and be kind and respectful. We all think this is great advice.     Tia, Beth and Dylan

We have all been busy in primary 3A since returning to school after our winter break.

In RME we have been learning about Buddhism. We watched a film clip about Aladdin. Jasmine wasn’t allowed to come out of the palace walls and when she came out she saw lots of people who didn’t have money to buy food. Jasmine was used to getting everything for free in the palace so she gave a little boy an apple thinking it was free. This was similar to the real story in Buddhism where the prince didn’t go out of the palace. He thought that people didn’t get ill or get old.  Heather and Bella

 

In PE we have had our first gymnastics lesson. We practised making shapes with our bodies. The shapes included; the bridge, the L, Y, T shapes, tuck and straight shape. We practised jumping from benches and landing in a controlled way using the body shapes. Cara and Jessica

In Science our new topic is Body Systems. We have been introduced to the skeleton. We know some interesting facts. Here are some of them:

When you are born you have 300 bones.

Molly: When you get older you have 206 bones.

We know that some of the baby bones fuse together

Lexi: The skull protects your brain

Eleanor: The femur is the longest and strongest bone in the body.

Ayyan: The ribs protect your heart and your lungs.

Bruce: The pelvis is the biggest bone in the body.

Sam : The stirrup is the smallest bone in the body. You find it in your ear.

We made and labelled our own skeletons. Luca FI

 

In ICT we have made pictures with different shapes.

We are learning how to make different colours for shapes and outlines. James

Me and Molly made a sunset. Leaah

I made a football match with Luca Fi. Warren

Heather and I made a house. Elle
