Primary 3 26.2.18

This week in P3 we will be handing out Assembly parts. Your child will have a line stuck in their homework diaries and we would appreciate your support with helping your child to learn these. We have also adapted Ed Sheeran’s song, ‘Castle on the Hill’ and we have given these words to your child to learn. We will be singing this daily in school and the link for the music is below.

Both classes will have football on a Tuesday for the next 5 weeks and P3S will have PE on a Wednesday also. Please ensure indoor kit is brought in on both of these days.

On Thursday it is World Book Day and we will be celebrating this on Friday with a grand tour of each stage’s book corner and a sharing of the books that each child chose to add to their new reading corner.

Other homework this week will be spelling and reading as normal.

Also the weather is set to turn colder again so please ensure your child has appropriate footwear and coats, scarves, hats and gloves.

Have a good week!

Mrs Smith & Mr Gordon

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!

Mrs Smith & Mr Gordon
