Our Learning Week – Primary 3b

This week (week ending the 13th January) has been a very busy week for Primary 3b.

As part of our topic on the Major Organs of the Human Body we  learned why it is important to wash our hands and we used a special machine to help us see the dirt that we missed when we washed our hands.


The garden is also looking very good and we were amazed at how much some of the bulbs have grown. Soon it will time to get things planted in the garden and if any parent or grandparent wishes to help then please get in touch with the school office.


We were also really excited to find out that Primary 3b travelled the most miles in Scotland as part of Skypeathon and we look forward to receiving our prizes very soon.

Finally, if anybody at home does have any empty cereal boxes Primary 3 would be most grateful for them.


Thank you from Primary 3b

Thank you

Primary 3b were very excited today when we received a surprise package all the way from Glastonbury, Connecticut USA. Inside was a lovely thank you poster from a school that we Skyped during our  Skypeathon along with a Pokemon Card for everyone in the class.


We would like to say a big thank you for sending us these super Christmas presents all the way from America!

Worldwide Christmas Carol Service – No Passport Required!

Primary 3 were really lucky to sing Christmas Carols with children from all over the world using Skype.


We managed to listen to some songs in German from a school in Hungary and joined in some Nativity songs with a school in Hull, England.

On Thursday of this week, we really enjoyed singing songs with a school in Nairobi and a school in New Delhi at the same time! Then in the afternoon we travelled over 13,987 miles, without our passports, to sing Christmas Carols with people from 5 different countries.

It was great to listen to Christmas Carols from all over the world and learn all about Christmas customs in different countries.
