Henri Rousseau Art Lesson

During our French time today we looked at work of Henri Rousseau with Miss Hamilton. This is part of our study of French culture and we are looking forward to the European Day of Languages next Wednesday. We all enjoyed working with the watercolours. Here are some photographs of our work 😀!

Well done P3W for all of your hard work!

Maths Week Scotland

Hello everyone, we have had a great start to Maths Week today and are excited about the week ahead.

Homework this week is all numeracy and mathematics themed.

Both activities were issued today in class.

  1. How Did My Family Use Numeracy and Maths Last Night?
  • The purpose of this task is to become aware of how we use numeracy or mathematics in our daily lives.
  • Please discuss with your child the different ways in which the family use maths skills e.g. telling the time to go to bed or measuring ingredients for a meal.
  • Pupils are asked to record some of the ways they or their family used maths e.g. write, draw or make representations.
  • The variety of ways of using maths will be discussed in class throughout the week.
  • Please tweet any photos to:

@BishoptoPS      @AttainRen     @MWSREN

2. Numeracy and Maths Bingo

Try to tick off as many activities on the Bingo grid throughout the week. Can you fill a row? What about two? Could you get a full house?

Remember to please Tweet @BishoptonPS using #MathsWeekScotlandRenfrewshire

Have fun!

We will also be Maths and Munching throughout the week and look forward to seeing some of you at our open afternoon on Thursday at 2.00pm.

As always please ask if you are unsure of anything.

Hi, as you know next week is Maths Week Scotland.  We will be taking part in lots of activities and completing many maths themed lessons throughout the week.

We have decided to Maths and Munch as part of Maths Week.  We will be getting together with other classes in the school throughout the week to enjoy some relaxed maths games.  If you have any of the following games at home or any others that you think may be suitable then please bring them in to school for Monday.  Some ideas include – playing cards, Uno, Snakes and Ladders, dice games, Twister, Battleships, Connect Four or any matching numbers games.  Remember to bring a healthy snack too if you wish.

We also hope you can come to our maths themed open afternoon on Thursday afternoon at 2.00pm.

We are excited about Maths Week and will keep you up to date with our activities each day.
