Primary Three

Primary Three

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to Primary 3. We are looking forward to a fun-filled and rewarding learning year!

We would be grateful if you could ensure that all your child’s clothes and belongings are carefully labelled.

P.E.

P.E. days will be on Monday and Thursday for both P3 classes. Longer hair should be tied back on these days and clothing such as ties and buttoned shirts should be avoided, if possible, to allow the children to enjoy as much of their PE time as possible. In the warmer weather we plan to be outside for PE, so it is best that children have joggers, a t-shirt and sweatshirt to wear in order to stay warm.

Homework

Children will be asked to complete weekly reading homework. Literacy and Numeracy homework will be given on a termly basis with suggestions for activities supporting our learning in class. This does not need to be signed and returned, as much of it will be practical. However, we would love to see any examples of work and photos brought in to share with the class.

Outdoor Learning

We are hoping to use the outdoor space for learning as much as possible.  We hope to establish good habits while the weather is fine that can be carried on through the autumn and winter.  Please can you ensure that your child has a waterproof jacket with them everyday to support this.

Many thanks,

Mrs Leithead, Miss Dunning and Miss Hendry
