What a brilliant time we had in Primary 3 last week. Our Egyptian topic is progressing well and this week we began by learning about the importance of the River Nile. We created our own miniature River Nile and flooded it to see whether any grass will grow along its banks. We also learned about the process of making paper from papyrus. We had a go at creating our own paper. See pictures at the bottom of this post. The children then wrote some Egyptian symbols on their paper. It was a fascinating week!
During writing this week, our chairs went on strike! They sent us a letter explaining why they were fed up. We were tasked with writing a persuasive letter to the chairs to ask them if they could come back. All of the chairs agreed that the children had tried very hard during this writing and they came back to our tables just in time for lunch! (We don’t think we will have any people swinging on their chairs from now on!)
In art, the children have continued to work had on their Egyptian mask designs, we can not wait to see the finished products!
A few reminders for your diaries (the children will also have these written in their own diaries too.)-
- It is Children in Need day this coming Friday and children have been invited to dress down for this
- As of the week beginning 30th November, our PE days will be on a Tuesday and Thursday. The Tuesday slot will be with the class teacher and the Thursday slot will be with our PE specialist, Mrs. Ferguson
Some children form Primary 3a forgot to hand their homework folders in on Friday. This will mean that, due to the current quarantine measures, Mr Williamson will not be able to look at the homework until the next homework due date which will be Friday 20th November. Can we also remind everyone that old reading books need to be handed back into school with the homework.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch and as always thank you for your continued support.
Mr Williamson and Miss Smith
