80’s inspired Art

P3b.1 have been exploring 1980’s pop art and graffiti. We tried to copy the style of Keith Haring. He became very popular in the 1980’s when he could be found drawing on the New York subway walls and ceilings. People became used to seeing his work there. We used chalk pastels in bright colours and outlined the figures in black to create our own versions of his art. We think they look great!

Chinese New Year

To celebrate Chinese New Year – the year of the rat – primary 3 had the chance to sample some delicious Chinese cookery. We ate noodles with vegetables and wraps and a sweet tasty sauce. A big thank you to our fantastic dinner ladies who made it for us.

Gymnastics

P3b.1 have been learning rolls, jumps and balances in P.E. We worked with a partner to create a routine which had a starting position, two balances, two rolls, a jump and a finishing position. As an extra challenge, some of us tried to move in opposite directions during our moves.

Artists At Work

Primary 3b.2 are doing a mini topic about Scottish artists. Last week we were learning about Avril Paton and ‘Windows In The West’. Lots of children in the class recognised this print and were excited to create their own version of this iconic painting. Watch this space for more amazing art work!

Multiplication

Some of the children in Primary 3b.2 have been learning their multiplication tables. Please can you practise these at home as much as possible. Your child will be able to tell you what tables they have been learning.
