If your child does not have a book please read every evening and discuss. I have also sent home two reading worksheets. Any questions please ask.

Welcome back. I hope you all had a lovely break.
News for this term…..
- We are starting a novel study on ‘The Twits’. As we are basing all our reading tasks around this there will be no reading book sent home (I predict this will be 2/3 week). Please continue to read every night. I have stuck a reading journal into the back of homework jotters. Reading can be anything from, stories, an article on the internet, reading a recipe. Be as creative as you like!
- French – We will be having Margaux, a French language assistant on a Thursday. She has already told us lots about her home in France.
- Topic- Ancient Egyptians continues.
Homework grid will be inside homework jotters. It is due in for the 3rd March.
Homework will be due in on Friday 10th of February.
Spelling- Words stuck in jotter. Look, say, cover, write, check three times. Then copy words out with consonants in red and vowels in blue.
Maths- This week’s maths homework will be a sumdog time challenge plus continuing with learnits. If you would like to do any extra work at home we have been working on o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to on analogue and digital clock.
Reading- On reading marker.
If anybody had any copies of ‘The Twits’ at home I would be very grateful if the class could borrow them as we are going to complete a novel study after the February break.
On Friday we will be going to Loanhead Library to return our books and borrow some new ones. If any children have their book at home please can you make sure they bring it in. There will be no permission slips given out as it is a local excursion.
Miss Prior 🙂
Just a little reminder. We will be reciting our Scottish poems on Monday (23rd). Two children will be chosen to recite their poems to the whole school on Weekday (25th).
On Wednesday afternoon (25th) the lower atrium (P1-4) will be having a Scottish afternoon. We will be celebrating with food, music and dancing. Your child is more that welcome to wear something ‘Scottish’ if they wish.
Sorry I did not collect the homework in on Friday. I will collect it in on Monday and send the new homework grid out on Tuesday. In class, we will be focusing on poetry and also reading comprehension this week. Therefore, for this week’s reading homework I will send a comprehension task instead of reading book. Some children may come home with a book so please check reading folders.
Any questions please do not hesitate to get in contact.
Miss Prior : )
I have sent home three Scots poems today. Could you please choose one with your child and help them learn it for Monday. On Monday we will have a class recital competition and the two winners will be chosen to go forward to the whole school competition on Wednesday 25th.
I have printed the poems out and have attached a copy if anybody needs it.

If anybody knows of anyone who plays the bagpipes or does Scottish dancing could you please contact me. I have a little favour to ask!
Happy New year!
I hope you all had a lovely break and the children are well rested for the term ahead.
I will update the Primary 3 main page in the next week or so to outline what we will be covering in class this term. We will also be welcoming Mrs Wallace back on a Wednesday.
P.E days will usually be a Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child has full, labelled PE kit. It is best to leave it in school as occasionally there is a timetable change.
During January we the whole school will be celebrating ‘Scottish month’. We will studying this as a mini topic in P3. Looking at; geography, culture, poetry, food and maybe even some Scottish country dancing!
Homework will follow the same structure as last year. Children will be given out a grid every two weeks. All boxes on the grid must be completed for the specified date. Reading will be on a marker in your child’s book.
This week’s homework is stuck into jotters with spelling words. I have attached the grid here if it is needed. P3 HW 08.01.17-17m3h5c
Any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Sorry I forgot to collect in the homework on Friday. My mind was preoccupied with the Christmas Fair. I will take the jotters in on Monday. Homework will be a little different this week. Children will be given a Christmas activity booklet to work through. There will be various literacy,maths and design activities. Please work through this in any order. There will be no homework issued on the final week.
We will be doing various reading activities in class over the next three weeks looking at skills for reading and reading comprehension. However, with all the festive goings on I will not be sending home reading books with set homework. Please ensure your children are reading each night a book of their choice.
