Primary 3b…….17th May


This week we have learned lots and got to enjoy lots of time outside because the weather has been beautiful.

We have been learning to make ‘Roly Poly’ toys as part of digital week.  We used toilet rolls and paper plates and lots of pretty colours to decorate them.  As part of our topic we looked at the Spanish artist Salvador Dali, and we drew portraits of ourselves and added moustaches to look just like him.  We now know his most famous painting was ‘The persistence of memory’.

Also, we had a scavenger hunt outside and had lots of fun. We tended to our flower bed preparing it for planting our seeds.  As part of numeracy, we took our metre sticks and measured things in the Field of dreams.


Primary 3b 3rd May 2019


In Primary 3b, as part of our topic,  we have been learning about Spanish words and practising them in the class.  Also, we learned about famous landmarks in Spain and carried out research in ICT to create a Spanish Fact file. We have also learned to measure in centimetres using our rulers.  Our spelling words this week followed the rule ‘ough’ and we created silly sentences at home using these. In Literacy we wrote rhyming poems and we had lots of fun creating these in partners. As part of health we were talking about being safe in the sun and we designed posters to raise awareness of this issue.


We have felt successful when:

  • I spoke Spanish words.
  • I created a poem that rhymed.
  • In P.E. I managed a move I couldn’t do before.
  • I measured lines correctly in cm.


We have been learning about:

  • Measurement and we went outside and worked I pairs to measure each other. We learned about centimetres and metres.
  • Our new topic which is Spain, We spoke about what we know already and what we would like to find out during this topic.
  • Oor Wullie and how we have to design one that will be placed somewhere in Scotland.

22nd February 2019

In Primary 3b we have been learning lots of interesting things. In Numeracy we have been learning about AM/PM and also consolidating our learning in addition with carrying of Tens and Units.  In Literacy, we wrote a set of instructions about our skittle experiment and we also wrote a character description on a character from The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark. As part of Religious education we were learning about the story of the lost sheep and we talked about all the boys and girls making their First Reconciliation.

In P.E. we enjoyed adding more moves to our Tsunami dance and we relaxed during our yoga session. We feel that we have tried hard with our reading skills this week and look forward to starting a new class book as we have finished The Owl Who Was afraid of the Dark. In ICT we learned about safety when on the Internet and we all now know what information we shouldn’t share online.
