Primary 3 News!

We have been looking at all things Polish this week for our Erasmus + project. This morning the children sampled some of the local delicacies such as pretzels, cookies, gherkins, sausage, cheese, wafer biscuits and cake. A big thank you to all the mums who donated lots of yummy goodies!

We also went to Eliburn Park yesterday as part of our Outstanding Outdoors Topic. The weather was very kind to us and the children had a great time! Thank you to our parent helpers!

Primary 3

Primary 3 h.ave a busy couple of weeks coming up.

This week we are looking at Poland as part of our Erasmus + project and we will be showcasing our work at the open afternoon on Friday 23rd June. The children have been set a homework task about this. They are to find out any facts about Poland and present to the class. This can be done in any form such as through photos, sentences, craft, stories, food or dance and it is due this Friday 16th June.

We are also planning our beach trip next Tuesday so could you make sure all forms have been handed back in to school along with the £5 payment.

Weather permitting we will be visiting Eliburn Park this Thursday. Please make sure your child has a waterproof jacket, sensible walking shoes and a snack as we won’t return to school until lunch time.

This Friday is our Day of Change, please send in any spare change and the children can dress in opposites such as pjs, scarf, hat and gloves etc.

Have a great week!

Last week primary 3 learnt all about Poland as part of our ERASMUS project. Over the week the children had the opportunity to learn a Polish dance which we videoed to share with the partner schools. The children also tried a variety of Polish foods and created a Polish menu. We all liked the Polish biscuits and wafers but some children were not so keen on pickled gherkins, a famous Polish delicacy! Throughout the week the children created a lot of artwork which is now displayed in the classroom. We annotated maps, made Polish coat of arms, created Polish flags and drew famous Polish stories. The children all enjoyed learning about Poland and were very interested in exploring a different culture.
This week there will be no homework. PE will be as normal (Tuesday for both classes, Monday form Miss Rafferty’s class and Wednesday for Miss Christy’s class).
Thank you for your support
Miss Christy and Miss Rafferty.

We have been practicing our poems this week and were all ready for Thursday. Although the nerves and excitement were running high, they got the better of no-one and everyone managed at least one verse. I am very proud of the people who managed to learn the whole poem off by heart! It was very impressive and I thank you for your time and commitment.

Well done to Skye and Keira who went through to the finals. The competition was fierce and it was such a hard choice as both girls showed great talent and huge amounts of confidence.

Congratulations to Skye who has made it to the next round.

We have been experimenting with circuits in Science this week. we hope next week to have a look at the components of a circuit and be able to make our own bulbs, buzzers and motors work.

I am heading to Poland for one week to continue the exciting work on our Erasmus Project. I hope to come back with lots more ideas and information about the Polish culture and traditions, especially those connected to Easter and Christmas.

Thank you to Allan who has been preparing me for my visit, teaching me the important phrases I will need for my journey. Allan, dziekuje for your help 🙂

I will hopefully be able to update the Blog whilst I am away and look forward to hearing your comments and questions again.

Miss Leyland will be in charge of the class along with Mrs Gilmour and there are lots of fun and exciting things in store, especially in our topic work where we are now learning about the city of Glasgow.

I shall see you all in a week! Work hard and have fun! 🙂

Thank you again for all of you efforts,

Miss Smith
