P3 Parent Plan and Targets – Term 3

Welcome back to P3 Term 3!

This term our topic will be “Famous Scots”. We will focus our learning on Famous Scots in the present and the past. Here is a copy of our term plan which provides further details about the learning we will cover:

Your child will also come home with their Learning Journey jotters. Inside the Learning Journey is a copy of their targets for this term. Please make time to look through their learning and make any comments before sending this back to us for Monday 31st January. We have sent home an additional copy of your child’s home learning for you to keep. Please note the compulsory Literacy task this term, which is based on our topic of Famous Scots.

PE will continue to be inside on a Monday and Friday and children should come to school dressed appropriately for this.

As always, do not hesitate to contact us if you don’t have any questions:

P3 Learning

We have been exploring 2D shapes and 3D objects in class over the past few weeks. The following game can be used to guess the name of the hidden shape: https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/shiftingShapes/index.html

Also, we have examined how different shapes fit together to make different patterns. In class, we made our own tiling patterns by drawing around shapes. This weblink also allows learners the opportunity to make their own tiling patterns: https://apps.mathlearningcenter.org/pattern-shapes/

In spelling, we have been further exploring different spelling patterns including those with long vowel patterns. Forest Phonics is a useful online game which reinforces the spelling of words with the sounds we are covering in class. https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/forestPhonics/index.html

P3 Meet the Teacher

Thank you very much for joining us last week to learn a little bit more about Primary 3. It was great to have so many of you online. We appreciate that a lot information was shared and not all of you could make it so we have put everything together in a Sway for you to click through. We have also included some questions that were asked along with a video of your child’s classroom. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any other questions or queries.

P3 Meet the Teacher
Thank you for attending our P3 Meet the Teacher last week. We know that some of you couldn’t attend so we thought we’d upload this Sway on the website for you to refer back to.
