Primary three heard our nativity songs for the first time this week. The words are linked below and the music is here too. Please feel free to practise these in your spare time.
Behind the Stable Door
Gifts of Love
We will also be handing out words for our Bonnie Wee Jeannie McColl song for St Andrews Day. This must be learned for homework over the next couple of weeks.
Primary 3 were introduced to the senses this week. We investigated things we liked to smell, touch, taste, see and hear. Next week we will focus on the sense of sight. We learned a little about the work of Louis Braille in creating the braille alphabet. We will explore this further next week.
We created some fantastic Firework Safety posters in writing this week so please ask us all about the safety rules. We now know what to do on bonfire night with sparklers, fireworks and bonfires.
Please if anyone has lost cardigans or jumpers in the past term, ask to see the pile in Miss Smith’s room. None of them have names, however they must belong to somebody. They will go up to lost property at the end of the week if they are not claimed.
Please bring a water bottle to school filled with water each day.
Please put names on every piece of clothing coming into school for easy identification.
Please bring PE kit on allocated day:
P3S – Tuesday and Thursday
P3MS – Monday and Wednesday
Learn Bonnie Wee Jeannie McColl
Reading books – see diaries
Spelling – Look, cover, write and check words along the line and write one sentence for one of your words. (This will increase to 3 sentences after Christmas.)
Happy New Year and welcome back. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Hogmanay and enjoyed the break.
Thank you so much for all the lovely gifts I received, they were very much appreciated.
We have such a busy term ahead of us and a lot to get done before Easter.
This term our topic in class will be Mary Queen of Scots. We will be learning all about her life and her place in history.
There will be a big homework task based on our topic given out in a few weeks for the children to complete.
Normal homework will resume on Monday. Our reading homework is going to be slightly different this term and details of this will be sent home in jotters next week.
Please ensure that your child is completing their spelling and reading homework weekly (as well as maths when it is given out) and that they are being returned on time in order for jotters to be marked and given back out for the next lot of homework.
This term our outdoor PE will continue to be on a Monday and indoor PE on a Wednesday so please ensure your child has appropriate kit on those days, this includes shoes for outdoor gym as it can be difficult for them to run and take part in games and activities when wearing boots or wellies.
Please can you ensure that all your child’s clothing is labelled with their name when coming into school as this avoids confusion when changing for gym or when jumpers and cardigans are taken off in class. This includes gym kits as the clothes can often be very similar and the children do not always recognise their own.
Children have been given a Robert Burns poem in class today to bring home which they are required to learn and will be reciting in class on Monday 18th January. Two children will then be picked based on this recitation to perform their poems at our Burns assembly that Friday (22nd). Please help your child to practise this as much as possible between now and then.
