Good morning Primary 3, it’s Wednesday already! This week is flying by and it’ll be Friday before you know it! I hope to see lots of you on our Class Chat today at 10am to hear all your stories and to find out what you are going to get up to over the summer. Miss Smith’s class chat at 10 has a theme this week – Word Wednesday! Tune in to play a word game!

For today’s writing task we are thinking of a creative summer story. If any of you have seen Chitty Chitty Bang Bang you will know that the family take a trip to the beach, fall asleep and when they wake up their real adventure begins. We’d like you to do the same. Write a story about you and some friends or family on a trip to the beach. How would you enjoy yourselves on the beach, what does you beach look like, where is your beach? And then you fall asleep after much enjoyment. When you wake up your adventure begins, and it can literally be anything you like. Something happens when you awaken on the beach. What happens, do you travel anywhere, what problems do you encounter that you have to overcome? Let your imaginations run as wild as you can, be as creative as you can. You have completely free reign after you wake up on the beach, we are so excited to see what wild and wonderful stories you can come up with!

Today’s summer art involves using straws to create a different paint effect!

Create a lovely summer meadow using the following instructions:

Straw Art – Creating Summer Meadows.

Materials – Straw

Paints

Water

Paper

Paintbrush

You may want to begin by putting a ‘wash’ of green on your paper. This will give you the base colour for your meadow, then you can begin to add the flower colours on top. Place a big watery blob of paint at the centre of where you want your flower to start. Use your straw to blow your paint in different directions to create lots of lines coming from the first blob. Use different colours to make the flowers interesting and Summery. Here is a real wild flower meadow to give you some ideas of colours.

 

 

 

 

 

For your ‘End of Term Celebration Challenge,’ why not use your knowledge of healthy eating and plan to prepare a healthy snack for your party goers! Will you have to weigh out ingredients? Do you have enough ingredients? Will you have to use your health and hygiene knowledge? Or remember safety instructions using things around the kitchen? Remember to plan out quantities so that you have enough for everyone. Let us know what delicious food you are planning to prepare for Friday!

Also, to keep your Maths ticking along, here is a summer worksheet, today the focus is money!

Thank you for your continued hard work and support,

Miss Smith and Mr Woodward
