P3 home learning (due 20.01.17) and class update

 

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

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.

Topic

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

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.

Home learning due 16.12.16

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.

Dates to remember:

Wed 7th-Panto in the afternoon

Thursday 8th-Drumming workshop and class talent show heats.

Wednesday 14th-Christmas Luch

 

Book Week Scotland 21st-26th Novemeber

P3 will be celebrating Book Week Scotland next week. Due to other exciting reading activities we will not be following our normal reading schedule. I will not be sending reading home. Instead, I would like children to read for enjoyment or share books together as a family. Children should aim to read for 20 minutes each night. See below for further information.

  • I would like children to bring a book in next week to read for enjoyment (if you don’t have a new one or you forget then there are plenty in school to borrow). In addition to this, I would like them to bring in their favourite book. If they could keep it in school for the week that would be great.
  • In class we will be using the ipads to create ‘book trailers’ in groups (like film trailers), writing book reviews on our favourite books, creating book marks for the library visit and recommending books to each other.
  • Children will be asked if they want to do a really short informal book talk. It will be a little like show and tell but for book recommendations. They should introduce their book, say why they like it, why they would recommend it to other children and read a very small excerpt from it. I will speak to children about this next week and then send a little slip home so they can prepare.
  • On Friday 26th we will end the week with an exciting visit to Loanhead Library.
