Hello and welcome to P3! The P3 teachers are Mrs Gardiner, Mrs Patterson and Mrs Shields. P3 is a very exciting year! We have lots of fun World Around Us topics, interesting ABL activities and new learning in Literacy and Numeracy to look forward to. We are delighted to welcome everyone back to school for their first year in Key Stage 1 and hope that all of the boys and girls enjoy their time in P3 and learn lots across the curriculum. If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Keep checking this page over the course of the school year for regular updates and to see what’s going on in Primary 3.
We have made a busy start to the year and have already done lots of interesting new things. Our topic this term is ‘Sow It Grow It’. We will be doing lots of practical activities related to this through our Activity Based Learning. We will be having a go at making our own clay hedgehogs which will be going into hibernation very soon. Another ABL activity will give us the chance to show off our creativity through a colour mixing task. We will be hunting outside for different shapes and sizes of leaves which we will use for our art work. We will be letting our teachers know just how much we have learnt about the seasons through our season sort activity. Our current writing focus is ‘Instructional Writing’. Our teachers have given us a challenge! They have provided us with a variety of games which we will not be able to play unless we read and follow the instructions correctly!!!
During our Guided Reading sessions in class, we have been having fun predicting what will happen next in the stories that we have been reading. For shared reading we have been introduced to ‘Brenda the Brent Goose’ and look forward to finding out all that she gets up to!
In Numeracy we have begun the term by doing lots of data handling. We have made a birthday chart and will soon be making a height chart too. We even managed to show information about our ages on a Carroll Diagram.
Our teachers have lots more exciting things planned for the next few weeks. Keep checking to find out what new things we have been up to!
