Happy Tuesday Primary 3, we hope you have been enjoying the beginning of your week and you had fun starting to think about the summer and what you’d like to get up to over the holidays!

For today’s reading activity we are thinking about where you could read. You have thought about what you could read over the summer but we thought it would be fun to encourage you to think about the where. We also thought it would be fun to mix reading and den building, which we’re sure you’re all masters at! Why not spend today planning a reading den which could be a sanctuary for you to spend time in reading your favourite books? And if you have time and if you are allowed you could actually build it!

If you are still up for planning an end of term celebration that your family can join you in on Friday, today’s challenge task is to create a banner with your celebration title on it! You could do one big long banner, and practise your bubble writing, or even make your banner like little triangle bunting flags! It is up to you – be as creative as you like! Send us some snaps if you manage to make one – we would love to see!

Here are some Summer Maths activities for you. See if you can remember our work on clocks and time! Summer Time

Why not try another little Summer Art activity. It may just be enough to bring the sunshine back, and today it is all about Mr Woodward’s favourite thing… Ice Cream!

Materials: Anything you can find in the house to print with and make interesting patterns from their textures.

Paint

Paintbrush

A4 Paper cut in half into a long thin strip

Begin with a long, thin piece of paper.  Find objects around the house or junk that can be cut into circles and painted on.

Paint onto your cut shapes with different colours. Press them into your paper to print and create your ice cream balls.

Can you find something you can print on to make the ‘criss cross’ of a cone? How about a tangerine net? Or perhaps some polystyrene you can score into? Or thick cardboard?

Can you think of the flavours represented by the colours of ice cream you have used?

Thank you for all your hard work and support,

Miss Smith and Mr Woodward
