P3a – 7.10.16

We have had another busy week in Primary 3a. We are really enjoying our new Katie Morag topic. We have been learning more about islands and now know that the Isle of Struay is based on the island of Coll. We are now able to find Coll and Livingston on a map of Scotland. We also started to write letters to Katie Morag.

In numeracy, we have been learning about doubles and have shared the different strategies we can use to find the answer. We have also been learning about sorting and displaying information using Venn diagrams.

Gavin from the Scripture Union came into school today to lead an assembly all about “patience”. Can you think of a time when you had to be patient?


P3a – 30.9.16

This has been a another busy week in P3a, preparing for our first class assembly on the value of thoughtfulness. We worked hard learning our lines, rehearsing our Mr Twit and Good Samaritan dramas, singing our songs and presenting what we have learned about thoughtfulness.

Thanks to all our parents, carers and friends who came along this morning to watch our assembly. I think you will all agree that we have lots of talented children in Primary 3a!

A short but busy week in Primary 3a!

In numeracy, we have updated our Paralympic medal table and created a block graph – didn’t Team GB do well with 64 gold medals! We also enjoyed playing “hit the button”.

In health, we have been talking about bullying with Miss Pattison and have designed amazing posters.

We had great fun making our Paralympic spelling words with playdough.

Our preparations for our class assembly are going well. Yesterday we had a special visitor, Stephanie our new minister. She told us some of the bible stories which demonstrate thoughtfulness.


These are our highlights of the week:

Molly – I am enjoying my group reading book.

Max – I enjoyed using playdough to spell my words.

Callum – Science was great this week, we were doing floating and sinking experiments.

Aisling – I enjoyed drawing a picture from “The Good Samaritan” and acting out the story.

We are looking forward to our assembly, all friends and family are invited. See you on Friday at 9.50am.

Another busy week in Primary 3a

In numeracy we have been learning how to partition numbers into tens and ones and now know the difference between a pictogram and a block graph. We have been keeping an eye on the Paralympic medal table and using the information to create graphs and tables.

To celebrate the centenary of Roald Dahl’s birthday we created beards for Mr Twit. We have also been looking at “Gobblefunk”, Roald Dahl’s own wonderful language. In our class we now have new pupils called “The Gloriumptious Hornswaggler”, “The Frightsome Bootboggler” and “The Frightsome Boggis”.

We are lucky this term to have Amy teaching us Scottish Street Dancing and we have created our own dances.

Over the next two weeks we will be working on our assembly on Thoughtfulness. All our parents, carers and friends are invited to this assembly on Friday 30th September. We look forward to seeing you all there.
