Primary 3

Good morning Primary 3.

I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe!

I have found some exciting activities about the Ancient Egyptians on the National Museum of Scotland website and others.

So I have decided to set you some topic questions! I know you were all enjoying our Ancient Egyptian topic before we finished up. The questions will be about mummification and can be found on the worksheet at the bottom of this post. There is a video to watch too.

Read a book that you have at home with an adult.  Draw a picture of your main character and write a description of them.

  • Think about how they look.
  • What are they wearing?
  • What qualities do they have? (kind, caring etc.)

 

Writing

What would you do if you had a pet dragon?

Think about:

  • Food
  • Where it would stay
  • Exercise

 

Now write a story with a dragon in it.

  • Why not add some pictures.

 

 

Maths

3D Shape

Have a hunt around your house to see what 3d shapes you can find.

Create a tally chart that you could use to record your findings as you hunt for 3D shapes. Keep a tally of how many you find of each shape.

What was the most common 3D shape in your home?

Tell an adult 5 things about 3D shapes.

 

Other Ideas

  1. Look outside and have a look to see what animals you can find and draw them.

It might be a butterfly, a bird, a squirrel, a dog.

  1. The Ancient Egyptians: Draw the River Nile and write 4 facts about it.
  2. Use Education City and Sumdog to complete the games set.

 

 

 

 

 

New term and new beginnings

Well after a lovely summer holiday our new primary 5’s have been busy since starting. So far we have created lovely self portraits, stained glass names and even started our topic.

The pupils enjoyed making their stained glass names and put a lot of thought into the colours they wanted to use. They were so excited when they were finally put up on the window and luckily for us, the sun was shining so we were able to see the effect of them.

 

The pupils have also been busy making kites where they looked at what they enjoyed last year, what they are looking forward to in primary 5 and what their strengths are. They also thought hard about something they would like to become better at.

 

We have had a great start to the term and can’t wait to keep you updated with all of our fun activities in class and what we are learning.

Solar System Art (p4/5)

Primary 4/5 have been busy recreating the solar system using oil pastels.  Our main focus of today’s lesson was to blend two or more colours using oil pastels.  We had to choose relevant colours for each planet and blend the colours together using our fingers.  This was much trickier than we thought it was going to be.

We also had to ensure that our planets were in the right order from the Sun.  We have each made a little mnemonic to help us to remember the order of the planets.
