Good afternoon everyone and happy Friday!
For a short week, it has been a busy one. Primary 3 have been working so hard on our mini Health topic. We discussed all of our buddies jobs in our community and even mapped out our community and all of the ways it helps people. We then created models of our dream communities from craft materials and even learned how to fold paper to make it 3D. Our dream communities involved lots of ways of keeping active with arenas, kick boxing studios, horse riding, roller blading ramps, play parks and pools. We talked about and made our dream housing to ensure we are safe, healthy and nurtured.
We created imaginative collaborative stories about our buddies and their work in the community. We took turns to write one sentence each and the stories twisted and changed depending on what that person’s idea was at the time of writing. They turned out very well and are up on display!
We used our ICT skills to type them up and then used ‘Audacity’ to record our stories by reading our parts of the story aloud.
Next week, on Monday, homework folders will be sent home. Homework will take the same format as last year, and the homework activities will be put into our share-it jotters. Primary 3 will be given a little more responsibility every Monday, in writing up our little homework diary to remind us what to do.
We would appreciate it if the folders can be in the children’s bags each day at school in order for them to access their reading books. We use these in our lessons and Primary 3 reading work will be based on their reading books that week. Usually the reading books are completed over 2 weeks with some exceptions. If your child is the exception, further instruction will be given in their yellow homework diaries.
Thank you again for your continued support,
Miss Smith and Mr Williamson
