Newton Primary 3 – Task Grid
On Thursday 12th September P3A went to Dunblane Library to look at some books about the Arctic and Antarctica. When we arrived Angela read us a story called ‘Geronimo’ by David Walliams. It was about a penguin who thought he could fly. After that, Angela did a quiz with us and we had to tell her which animals were from the Arctic and which ones were from Antarctica. Then Angela gave us some non-fiction books which would help with our learning about ‘Poles Apart’. We got to look at them and find out more facts with our friends. Angela said we can keep some of these books at school while we are learning about ‘Poles Apart’.
What we enjoyed:
‘I enjoyed when Angela read us the story.’ (Heidi)
‘I liked when me and all my friends were looking at a book together. We thought the pictures of the penguins were very funny.’ (Jackson)
‘I liked finding out more about Antarctica’ (Hayden)
‘I liked when my friends were looking at the books with me.’(Grace M)
What we learned:
‘I learned about 5 types of penguins.’ (Connor)
‘I learned that penguins swallow food then bring it up to feed their babies.’ (Ronan)
‘I learned that Antarctica is a continent.’ (Hannah)
‘I learned that people use polar bear fur for jumpers and rugs.’ (Keira)
On Wednesday 13th of March 2019, Primary 2 visited ‘Our Dynamic Earth’ in Edinburgh.
During the tour my favourite thing was the 4D cinema and the rhino nearly hit me on the nose. After the tour we had our lunch.
Then we went to a dinosaur storytelling workshop and I really enjoyed when Vicky the Velociraptor was so excited about things that were dangerous. I also enjoyed when Vicky thought she had done it all by herself but actually she didn’t she had help from the 2 other dinosaurs.
The trip was epic! By Keira

Thursday 7th March was World Book Day and P2 presented an assembly to the rest of the school to celebrate the event. The theme for World Book Day this year was ‘Share a Story’ so P2 shared a wonderful performance of ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’. We shared photographs of us sharing stories with our families, cuddlies and even our pets. We also talked about what we love to read and why we love reading.
“I like sharing How to Train your Dragon with my mum” Lewis

“I like sharing Matilda with my mummy” Evalina
“I like reading because I like to look at the pictures” Ben

The children all spoke clearly and confidently in front of a big audience and should be proud.
Primary 2 are very excited to find out their new learning context is Dinosaurs. They came into their classroom to find some rather interesting clues about their new topic. A really large egg was found and the class thought it was way too big to belong to a chick. There was also a tray with sand and they had to dig for their next clue – they found a huge bone and sharp tooth! The clues were beginning to become clear. Next to the egg there was a question mark with small dinosaur information cards surrounding it. The boys and girls are excited to become dinosaur experts and turn their classroom into a museum.
Take a look at our photos.
