Primary 3 News

This week we are looking at multiplication and we are focusing on the 2x table. Your child has been asked to design a poster at home showing groups of 2 in different ways. They can either take photos or draw the different groups and use language such as:

3 groups of 2=6

3 lots of 2 = 6

3X2=6

3 multiplied by 2=6

They can use items from their bedroom such as lego, puzzle pieces, figures etc.

This is due on Friday for display.

Phonics and reading have also been set as normal.

Congratulations to Joshua, Katie, Arthur and Eva who got through to our Scottish Poetry Assembly on Friday. All performed their poems brilliantly and our overall winners were Joshua and Arthur.

Don’t forget about the Big Homework! We can’t wait to see the castle designs after half term on the 14th February.

Next week is our Parent Consultations and you can book these online. We look forward to seeing you all and discussing your child’s progress.

We will also be looking at safety on the internet next Tuesday, talking about the right ways to use the internet and to be aware of any warning signs when using it.

Have a good week!

Entrepreneurial juices were flowing this week at our Invention Showcase! The event was a great success due to the hard work of Primary Six. We had many original product ideas, which demonstrated ingenuity, creativity and problem solving skills.

Equally impressive was the quality of the presentations given by the pupils and their enthusiasm for the event has to be admired. Well done Primary Six! Thank you to all our visitors, we are sure you will agree that we have some future Dragons’ Den candidates.

We have completed our first Parents Evening sessions of the year and would like to thank you all for your continued support.

REMINDERS –
PE – outdoor Kit on Mondays / Indoor kit on Wednesdays

Homework
Spelling due on Friday. Please note that spelling homework jotters should NOT be handed in before Friday as the children should be using them to practice their spelling words daily.

Maths Homework – we would like to remind all pupils that they have maths homework EVERY WEEK. If we do not give out maths homework in the form of worksheet we still expect the pupils to be practising Times Tables, Fact Families and Number Bonds. We have shown the pupils’ games and activities they can do to practice.

We wish everyone a happy October holiday,
Mrs Gilmour, Mrs Wylie, Mrs Tully and Mr Shanks
