Good morning Primary 3 and welcome to your last week as Primary 3s! We hope you have all had spectacular weekends and you are ready to make the most of your week before the summer holidays. Please make sure that you are enjoying yourselves and you take advantage of any great weather we have. Remember if we were in school there would be lots of outdoor learning taking place in the sun!

Because it is the last week of school, we have some fun tasks for you to do!

This week, we will have a week-long celebration challenge, where each day you can complete a task, if you want to, so that by Friday, you can host a big end of term, end of P3 celebration.

Your first task for our celebration is to think of a title for your celebration. Alliterative titles are always catchy – see if you can use the same letters at the beginning of your words in your title, eg. P3’s Perfect Party.

A fun Art idea for today is to make your very own Sunburst painting. Let’s see if we can encourage the sun back for the rest of this week using as many colours as you can so it is lovely and bright!

Materials:

Paper

Paints

Paintbrush

Pencil

Draw a small circle in the middle of the paper. From the outside edge of the circle, use a rule to help you draw straight lines to the edge of the paper. Try to ensure your lines are the same distance apart all the way round the circle.

Paint each section in a bright colour. You can use the same colour twice, just ensure the same colour is not used in 2 sections side by side.

You could even use this as a decoration for your end of term celebration on Friday?

For your reading today we would like you to take some time to plan your summer reading. We know we have lots of keen readers and so we would love to see what books you are excited to read in the summer holidays. It would be lovely to see a display of your summer reads and you could even tick them off when you’ve read them!

For the final week, our Rights Respecting Schools Article is about minority culture, language and religion.

Some activities you may wish to do are:

  • Can you find out how to say ‘”Hello, how are you?”’ in 5 different languages. Share with friends and see how many you can get as a group.
  • Culture means traditions that groups follow like food, dances, song and clothes. Draw or write about what is important in your culture. Then think of someone who comes from a different culture and share safely with them what is important about culture for each of you. This could be someone you know or you could pick a country or indigenous group and write to a child of that country or group.
  • Watch ‘If the World were a Village of 100 People’ to find out about people around the world.
  • What does it mean to be from a minority or indigenous group? Find out what the words mean and then think about which minority groups there are in the UK. Why do you think Article 30 is important and how does it link to last week’s work on Article 2?

Here’s a little fun Maths activity using your multiplication facts and division facts. One is both Mild and Spicy – if you choose mild – just complete the sums for the times tables you are comfortable with. This should be; 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x.
