Primary 3 News

This week we are busy getting ready for our Harvest Assembly and your child has stuck their lines into their diary to learn along with their spelling focus of ‘oa’. Can you make sure your child is writing out their words three or more times in their spelling book. If they would like to attempt putting these words into sentences of their own then they are most welcome. Some children in P3 have been writing three or four sentence with some of the spelling words included which has been lovely to see.

Please encourage further practice of their letter formations using scrap paper as well as their common words. All of this will contribute greatly to their writing and reading.

Below we have attached links to the three songs the children are singing in the Harvest Assembly:

  1. Autumn says ‘Hello’
  2. It’s Harvest Time
  3. What are you growing?

If you have time we would appreciate it if you could get your children to listen to the songs and have a go at singing them too. We will also be having a daily sing along in class so that we get the words stuck in our heads!

Autumn Says Hello! (lyrics) Autumn Says Hello! (score)

It’s Harvest Time (lyrics) It’s Harvest Time (score)

What Are You Growing (lyrics) What Are You Growing (score)

Don’t forget to book your appointment with us for Parent Consultations, a letter will be going out this week.

In P3S we also have an extra pair of hands in class! Miss Brown has been with us for a few weeks now and she is taking on more responsibility in class delivering a variety of lessons. The children have been working very well with her and she will also be with us during Parent Consultations to observe.

One last plea! Could you make sure that children have a jacket for school along with indoor and out door shoes? Temperatures are slowly decreasing and it is getting a wee bit chilly even if the sun is out. Don’t forget to label these too!

Have a great week!

Primary 3 26.9.16

Primary 3 are looking forward to their first trip this week. We are off to Dynamic Earth on Thursday to learn more about the Weather and explore different types of weather around the world. Can we please remind everyone to have their forms and money handed in asap.

In maths we have been doing lots of addition using the 100 square. We have been using different strategies to add numbers, such as 10, 9 & 11 and 19&21. We would recommend the children to continue using this skill at home, with a 100 square. We have also been doing lots of work on Data Handling and are hoping to use these skills to create graphs to explain data gathered from rain fall and temperature.

BIG HW is due tomorrow and we are looking forward to seeing and hearing all about the children’s weather mobiles. We are sure they will make an attractive addition to our class displays.

Guided reading will continue as normal this week. The children are becoming more familiar with the guided reading set up and beginning to work a little more independently on written tasks.

Primary 3 have their Harvest Assembly coming up in a couple of weeks, so we will be asking a number of children to learn some lines and songs for the assembly. These will be handed out shortly.





BIG HW– due Tuesday 27th September

P.E– P3R Tuesday
