We have had another brilliant week of learning in Primary 3.
In Topic, we have been using ICT to create posters about the sea creatures we have been researching. They are really informative. We have also been learning about ocean pollution which can be really dangerous for animals in the ocean. We thought about some of the things we can do to prevent this from happening including recycling where possible and picking up rubbish from the ground at the beach.
In numeracy, we have been continuing to work on our vertical multiplication strategy. The children are very confident with this strategy now. In Maths, we have been looking at creating amounts of money and adding two amounts together to make a total cost. We had a very good discussion about why money is so important in daily life.
We have been working hard on our report writing this week, and we wrote some good reports about our sea creatures. We included information about where they live, what they eat and what they look like.
Both classes have really been enjoying our orienteering in PE, both with Mrs Ferguson and the class teachers. We are developing our map reading skills very well and can locate different cards around the school playground. It has been nice to get the whole playground to ourselves!
PE days are Tuesday and Thursday.
Comic Relief day is on Friday 19th March. Children have been invited to come into school dressed as super heroes for this day. Red noses are still on sale via the school office.
Have a very restful and lovely weekend.
Miss Smith and Mr Williamson.
