P3 – W.C. 8th November

Primary three have had a busy week of learning.

Our IDL (Inter Disciplinary Learning) about space fed through our learning this week. The class learned about why the Earth, Moon and Sun are important to us and how they work. This led us nicely into our Maths and Science work, looking at the seasons and the months of the year. The class also continued to practise their time work. We created planets using mixed media and are going to assemble a model next week.

In French, we labelled bodies with their correct French words. We also practised our head, shoulders, knees and toes song (Tête, Épaules, Genoux et Pieds) very enthusiastically!

In Art, we created pointillism poppies which are now beautifully displayed on our wall.


The class were very respectful during the minutes silence and their understanding of Rememberence Day.

I – I really enjoyed making the pointilism poppies.

C – I loved making the planets in art.

L – I really enjoyed our French this week.

L – I liked learning football skills in PE.

P3 Home Learning and Learning This Week

Good afternoon,

I have uploaded an electronic copy of this term’s home learning grid onto Seesaw and I will attach a copy on to this post as well. A paper copy will be given to the learners next Wednesday when we return from the long weekend.

P3 Term 1 Home Learning

This week’s learning:

On Monday to celebrate Roald Dahl Day we had an exciting day of Numeracy, Science and Outdoor Learning. We read an extract from ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ and created potions from items collected in a jar during outdoor learning and added water, food colouring and essence.  From ‘The BFG’, we made dream jars with water, oil, glitter and an effervescent tablet to make the mixture move around the jars. Inspired by ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, we did the skittles experiment using varied types of skittles. We used the skill of prediction, observation and variables for future experiments.

Numeracy – This week we were finishing our focus on place value, we answered worded questions on addition and subtraction and we were looking at skip counting in 2’s.

In Maths, we were looking at quarter past and quarter to and the digital times for these as well.

Literacy – In handwriting this week we had a re-focus on b and d as this is often reversed. In writing we wrote a procedure piece of writing about our potions that we made in outdoor learning on Monday.

In HWB, we painted our own dream jars from ‘The BFG’ and wrote our dreams and aspirations for the future in the jars.

In IDL, we have been working on our group projects for our 20 year task this week and are starting to finish off our models.

In PE, we have been working on ball skills. Investigating and discussing the similarities and differences of various balls. Dribbling in different ways and learning various passing skills (bounce pass, over arm and under arm).

In RME, we looked at our local church and discussed what it looks like and what it might be used for.

I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend, and I will see P3 on Wednesday.

Welcome Primary Three!

Good afternoon and welcome family and friends of P3!

I am delighted to be teaching at Livingston Village again this year with primary three, and I am very excited for the year ahead.

Those who do not know me well, I am Mrs Love and this will be my third full year teaching at LVPS.

I hope the learners have settled into their first few days back to school, and are enjoying their time so far.

I wanted to let you know that PE days will be on Monday’s and Wednesday’s. If your child could come to school in suitable clothes for PE on these days, that would be wonderful.

Thank you,

Mrs Love

2021 Outdoor timetable Term 4

Outdoor Learning will be running again this term and the days and classes are listed below.  We ask that the children can be as suitably dressed as possible on the days they will be going outdoors.  Please consider that we could be walking through woods, soft muddy ground, or wet grass. It could rain, be windy, cold, snowing, drizzling or hot sunshine.  On very hot sunny days you may want to provide sunscreen for your child to apply.

It is always advisable to wear layers and always have a coat/raincoat.  The school has waterproof trousers and rain jackets for those that need them.

Whatever the weather, sandals are not suitable!  Some trainers may not be waterproof enough – it may not rain today but the ground could be muddy from yesterday’s rain.  Sturdy shoes, sometimes even wellies are a good idea.  Again the school has some pairs of wellies if they are needed.

Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs Smith
