Primary 1 Home Learning 24.04.20

Happy Vendredi Primary 1!

I hope you’ve all had a lovely time learning from home this week. It has been wonderful to see all of you working so hard and enjoying learning at home with your family. Thank you for continuing to share all of your hard work with us on the Learning Journals. We have shared some of the best work we have seen on the school blog and will continue to celebrate all of your efforts next week! Did anyone manage to go outdoors and see some of the signs of Spring of Spring this week? Maybe you were able to spot some daffodils, bumblebees and baby lambs in the fields? The weather has been beautiful, I hope you’ve all been outside enjoying the sunshine!

We will provide you with some fun new activities on Monday so it’s a great time to finish off any of the activities on the home learning grids this morning. We hope that you are finding the grids useful and that you are managing to access all of the resources you need. If you have any questions or feedback about the activities we are providing, please get in touch with us on the learning journals or school blog. Thank you for all of your support with this.

Fridays are truly the beginning of the weekend and it’s a great time to start winding down for some ‘Fun Family Friday’ time. We would like you to spend some quality time with your family today, whether that’s in the garden, going for a walk, baking a cake or playing a board game. It’s so important for us to stay healthy, happy and connected during this time. You could even perhaps give an aunt, uncle, grandparent or friend a phone call to catch up on what you have been getting up to at home this week.  Or you could write a letter to a friend or family member if you have time.

Get Set have posted some free resources, activities and challenges for the whole family to enjoy. Here are some examples of the active challenges you can take part in today:


  • Train to win activity sheet – keep kids active at home by challenging them to try a simple activity such as star jumps, jumping jacks or line jumps (jumping from one side of a line to the other with your feet together and knees bent) each day and track their personal best.
  • Domes and dishes – try to fun group game in the garden or living room to get active and explore the Olympic Value of respect. Use cones if available, or paper plates, books, or toys – anything that you can turn over!
  • Play Boccia – read the rules for the Paralympic sport of boccia and see if you can adapt and play a game in or outside of the house!
  • Winter team sports challenge – try these adapted (no snow required) versions of sports from the Olympic Winter Games.

The activity guides, information sheets and further information about these activities can be found in the document below:

Have a lovely weekend!

Primary 3 5.9.16

Primary 3 were writing instructions for playground games last week. We played three games and decided which one we wanted to write our instructions for. The children were able to write them in the correct order and use a variety of different openers. After all the instructions were written we put them do the test. They all worked out brilliantly!

Primary 3 were very active in maths this week, working around stations, playing board games, on the smartboard and used the ipads. We even managed some mental maths using our number fans. We were very impressed with their addition and subtraction skills.

We finished our work on the Active section of the SHANARRI wheel. We put our bodies to the test by raising our heart rates and describing/drawing what happens to our bodies when we exercise. All the children did very well identifying the changes.

Primary 3 29.8.16

Welcome back!
It was fantastic meeting all the new Primary 3 boys and girls last week! Everyone looked very smart in their uniforms and were very excited to come back to school.
We have been very busy getting to know each other, getting used to our new classroom and seats. Primary 3 have been working hard, showing us quality lines and fantastic manners.
Primary 3 have been focusing on what it means to be active by taking part in active activities, describing what happens to our bodies when we are active and how it can help us develop into healthy adults. We walked down to the local forest to explore, challenged ourselves on the trim track and practised our fine motor skills in class.
This week we are going to continue with activities and lessons about being active which will help us with our wonderful wall display in the hall.
We are looking forward to meeting everyone at Meet the Teacher on Tuesday! We will also be handing out our newsletter with some information about what will be happening in Primary 3 this term.

Homework will be issued next weekend.
