Scots week

Thanks to the parents who came into class on Friday to join in with our learning. It was great to have you in and your children were very proud to show you their fantastic pieces of work 🙂

Primary 3 have enjoyed a week of learning more Scots words, listening to well known stories read in Scots and learning about Robert Burns.

After hearing some of Burns’ famous poems, we attempted to write some poems of our own. As a class, we looked into Acrostic poems and wrote one about Scotland. The children did a great job presenting this at assembly to the rest of the school.

We will continue to learn more about Scotland in the coming weeks as this is our class topic for the term.

Lots of fun learning going on!

Hello parents and carers,

This week, Primary 3 have taken their learning across different curricular areas and having fun whilst doing so.

In Maths, the children have been able to consolidate their learning with the use of fun interactive Maths games on the iPads (pictures of this can be seen on the weekly SWAY from Ms Henry).

In our topic work about Scotland, we have been learning Scots words and the children have been able to use some of these words in our Literacy tasks as well our daily talking and listening.

Below you can see the lovely pieces of art work the children worked on when we were learning about a famous Scottish artist – Steven Brown.

We look forward to welcoming you into our classroom next Friday 27th at 11.30am to share with you some of our learning and have a little Scots week/Chinese New year fusion celebration 🙂

Have a nice weekend.

Happy 2023!

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone had a lovely Winter break.

It’s been great to have a full class of children back in and they are all ready and eager to learn in this new year.

Below you can see some of our activities within this week.

The children have enjoyed “making Maths fun” by learning and playing together on Snakes and Ladders. If you have the game at home, challenge yourself to beat your child! They are getting good at their counting with this game 🙂

We spent some time in the library choosing some new books for our story corner.

The children really do enjoy a good story and like to discuss what they are reading.

As of this week, in addition to the Reading and answering questions home learning, a new Maths sheet has been stuck into the homework jotters. These do not need to be completed all at once. The children can take their time to work through the grid. Take a task or two each day and all this extra preparation at home will help with their class work.

A gentle reminder that homework folders are given out on Thursdays and returned by the following Wednesday. We ask that parents and carers remind their children to return the reading books as other classes need to use them too. If you have any questions regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your cooperation.

I look forward to teaching and learning with all your children in these coming months and I am so proud to see all their progression to date.

Have a lovely weekend.

Happy weekend everyone!

Hello everyone,

Hope you all have had a lovely week and looking forward to some downtime at the weekend.

Primary 3 children have been working so hard throughout these weeks and it’s great to see everyone’s efforts and enthusiasm in all that we do 🙂

On Thursday, the children came home with a reading book and a little bit of homework to do. May I ask that you take some time to read with your child for enjoyment and talk about the story, looking out for any new vocabulary. If the writing task is not completed fully, that is ok, but we would like the reading to be done at some point. The folders and books are to be returned to school on Wednesday. Many thanks for your cooperation.

There was also a list of tricky words which can be kept at home and the children can learn to sight read these and continue to write them regularly.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend and see you on Monday.

Mrs Ho
