Primary 3 23 6 20

Happy Tuesday Primary 3, we hope you have been enjoying the beginning of your week and you had fun starting to think about the summer and what you’d like to get up to over the holidays!

For today’s reading activity we are thinking about where you could read. You have thought about what you could read over the summer but we thought it would be fun to encourage you to think about the where. We also thought it would be fun to mix reading and den building, which we’re sure you’re all masters at! Why not spend today planning a reading den which could be a sanctuary for you to spend time in reading your favourite books? And if you have time and if you are allowed you could actually build it!

If you are still up for planning an end of term celebration that your family can join you in on Friday, today’s challenge task is to create a banner with your celebration title on it! You could do one big long banner, and practise your bubble writing, or even make your banner like little triangle bunting flags! It is up to you – be as creative as you like! Send us some snaps if you manage to make one – we would love to see!

Here are some Summer Maths activities for you. See if you can remember our work on clocks and time! Summer Time

Why not try another little Summer Art activity. It may just be enough to bring the sunshine back, and today it is all about Mr Woodward’s favourite thing… Ice Cream!

Materials: Anything you can find in the house to print with and make interesting patterns from their textures.

Paint

Paintbrush

A4 Paper cut in half into a long thin strip

Begin with a long, thin piece of paper.  Find objects around the house or junk that can be cut into circles and painted on.

Paint onto your cut shapes with different colours. Press them into your paper to print and create your ice cream balls.

Can you find something you can print on to make the ‘criss cross’ of a cone? How about a tangerine net? Or perhaps some polystyrene you can score into? Or thick cardboard?

Can you think of the flavours represented by the colours of ice cream you have used?

Thank you for all your hard work and support,

Miss Smith and Mr Woodward

Hello everyone

Welcome to the P4 blog. We hope you had a lovely summer. We have really enjoyed meeting the children and beginning to get to know them over the past few days.

We have had a busy first week hearing all about everyone’s summer holidays. The children wrote about 3 things that they enjoyed the most about their holidays. They also worked on creating our classroom charters which tell the children about their rights and about how to respect the rights of others. We are creating classroom displays based on our charters.

We have also been learning about the importance of positive, happy thoughts even when things are difficult or tricky. The children were able to identify their strengths and we have started making a display for the hall about concentrating on the positives instead of the negatives. We are sure this will look fantastic!

Our annual Meet the Teacher event takes place next Wednesday (29th August) from 4:30-5:30. This is a drop in event where you can meet your child’s new teacher, look around the classroom, see work your child has completed in the first 2 weeks and explore resources that they may be using in Primary 4. Miss Donaldson & I are looking forward to meeting many of you then.

Next week we will send out a newsletter containing all of the important information needed for this term including what the children will be learning in each subject area and important dates (including PE days). Please look out for this in your child’s school bag.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.

We hope you have a lovely weekend.

Miss Clark & Miss Donaldson
