Welcome back and a Happy New Year to you all. We hope that you had a lovely break, it was lovely to see all the boys and girls yesterday and hear all their news from their time off.
This term we will be starting a new topic on Dinosaurs. We will be introducing this this week and finding out what the children already know and what they would like to find out. We are excited to see all the fun activities that the children will come up with!
This fortnight’s homework and a new Reading book was sent home today. Can children please bring in book bags every day as at times we get extra Reading practise?
There will be an extra piece of homework sent out this week in preparation for our annual Scot’s poetry competition. Each child will be given a poem to learn and recite to the class. We will also be doing work on this in class but we would appreciate your help at home to learn them.
Gym days this term continue to be Tuesday (outdoor) and Thursday (indoor with Mrs Ferguson).
Reminder that the Families Connect coffee morning is on Thursday 17th January at 2.30 and you are all welcome to come and find out more about the Families Connect programme.
Thank you for your continued support.

Well done to everyone who learnt their Scots poem last week. We were very impressed by the confident and clear delivery given by all the children which made it difficult to chose 2 winners from each class to go forward to the Burns Assembly on Friday. Well done to Leila, Sophia, Joe and Isla for being selected; you performed well and were great representatives of Primary 3. Joe and Leila were the winners from the competition for primary 3.
Primary 3 have been learning their times tables in Maths. So far the children have learnt and practised the 2,5,10 and 3 times tables and this week will be learning the 4 times table. Thank you for the practice you are putting in at home for this, it makes a lot of difference to the children’s confidence.
In our Knights and Castles topic, primary 3 have already learnt about the parts of a castle and the progression of becoming a knight. This week we will look at medieval weapons and will create a self portrait as a king or queen to hang in our great hall!
On Tuesday, primary 3 will be performing ‘Katie Bairdie’ at the Scots afternoon. All children must be in full school uniform for this.
A reminder that Miss Christy has indoor PE on Monday and Outdoor PE on Tuesday, and Miss Rafferty has outdoor PE on Tuesday and indoor PE on Wednesday.
Thank you for your support
