We are going to be doing some work in class and at home with our class novel ‘Cliffhanger’ by Jacqueline Wilson. Please let me know by Friday 20th March if you are able to source a copy of your own as we have a limited number of them in school.
P3b.2 have created their own 80’s fashion designs. There are bright coloured outfits, neon accessories, leg warmers and lots of curly perms.
Primary 3b.1 have been learning about how different religions welcome babies into their communities and families. If possible, could we please have some baby pictures of the children sent in for a fun guessing game and to add to our display. We promise they will be returned! Many thanks in advance.
On Monday 9th March, Rev Boag will be visiting the class to talk to them about how Christians welcome a baby. It would be great if the children could think up an interesting question to ask our visitor.
P3b.1 worked really really hard on their homework presentation and we loved hearing them this afternoon. We didn’t’ have time to hear them all so we are looking forward to more when we are back next week!
Some of our puppets also got to hear the story ‘Pet Detectives’. They really enjoyed hearing the stories being read with expression.
Some of our puppets were enjoying being read the story ‘How the Elephant got his Trunk’ this morning.
P3b.2 presented their local area projects in class on Friday. The children were confident, enthusiastic and answered questions too.
The children were very keen to display their projects on our’ PROUD’ wall in class. Well done!
P3b.2 were very busy working in their Literacy Stations this morning.
Riley and Zach were working together to match facts from their non-fiction Big Cats book to different night animals.
Charlie and Cameron were reading to each other. They boys added a lot of expression. Well done!
Rory and Georgia worked together to match word families.
Harry and Selena were sorting our rhyming words.
Selena and Hana were writing their spelling words on the big board.
P3b.1 have been learning about position and movement in numeracy. We have been learning about quarter, half, three quarter and full turns to the left and right. Some of us have been using right angles to give directions and turning clockwise and anti-clockwise.
We used our knowledge to help us with coding in ICT and worked with partners in the playground, giving and following directions to reach an object in one of the boxes.
This afternoon, P3b.2 made apple crumble using the apples from our school eco garden. We were very lucky to have Lorraine and Wilma help us and for allowing us to use the kitchen. We started by washing our hands and putting on aprons. Then the children were split into two groups. One group peeled the apples and the other group made the crumble.
We waited 20 minutes for the apple crumble to bake and were delighted to take a portion home to share with our families.
All of the children said they enjoyed their school baking experience! It really was a lot of fun.
Next week, we will write the recipe for our Writing lesson.
