In Literacy this week we have been focusing on poetry and linking this into our weather topic. We are building up to writing our own weather themed poems next week, look out for some examples on display at parents evening.
In numeracy our focus has been on multiplication and division, and recognising the relationship between the two. We have shown our Growth Mindsets because some of us found this concept very tricky, but by the end of the week we were feeling much more confident.
Our weather topic is proving to be very popular with the children all choosing a climate zone to learn about in their table groups. The class are very interested to find out more about extreme weather events which affect their chosen climate zone so we will be using our research skills to look into this more next week. We have also created our own mini Water Cycles in class to help understand where rain/snow/hail comes from – the children have been very engaged in this activity and love to check their water cycles several times a day to see what state of the cycle is on display.
Finally, in Health & Wellbeing, Primary 3 were one of the classes who shared the learning they had completed so far on our Building Resilience topic. Ten of the children spoke to the whole school and they were very confident and clear in their delivery. The rest of the school loved seeing the Treasure Book which the class have created. Three of the class members were chosen to talk at the coffee morning and they were very excited about this. I have heard very good feedback on this so well done to Primary 3 for all your hard work this week.
