P3 Roman Assembly

On Thursday 17th and Friday 18th May, the children of P3 performed their version of the story of the Roman God, Hercules!  There was outstanding acting, clear narration, great group work and fabulous musicianship!  Both performances were fabulous and made everyone involved feel ‘Proud’.

Fred Frog was also very impressed… Click here to see what he had to say!

 


 

Roman Foods!

P3 have been learning about foods in Roman times. We tasted dates, grapes and figs. We also made honeyed bread which the Romans ate as a sweet treat.

 


Puppets and Nests
[Blog Post by Megan and Arran]

We made a puppet show and put lots of effort in to our shows.

 

We also went outside and built some nests.

 


Introducing… The P3 Puppet Theatre!

In Primary 3 we don’t sit still for long.  We read the stories of the Enormous Crocodile and the Giraffe, The Pelly and Me and we decided to put on a puppet show!  We then had to investigate Puppet Theatres, puppets and props.  The children wrote their own play scripts in several ‘scenes’ to allow the puppets to act out the story.  The children worked in small co-operative groups. They sorted out narrators, puppeteers, scenery designers, and prop builders. Each group put on their puppet show for a group from the other class and Miss Inglis popped in to watch one of the shows!  She was very impressed! Well done to all the children in Primary 3.

 


Looking For Spring!

The children of P3 were looking for signs of Spring and answering a maths challenge.  They looked for new buds on trees and shrubs in the friendship garden and the story garden.  They searched in the woods to identify new, fresh leaves.  They searched for spring flowers such as snowdrops, daffodils and crocuses. They worked through their challenge with a partner and finally, using some of the twigs, sticks, moss and feathers they found, built little nests for birds.  Here are some of the results.The children were really thoughtful about how to protect the birds’ eggs.

 


Let’s Go Fly A Kite!

P3 had a design challenge this week. This came from our weather study.

We had to design a kite, build a kite and try to fly a kite! A fun way to think about the wind.

Ask your child to describe how they made the frame for the kite.

 

We succeeded! Look at the fabulous designs the children put on their kites! The trickiest bit was getting the string attached, but once that was done we had great fun flying them up and down the field in the afternoon breeze.


Autumn Poems

P3 have been busy writing autumn poems, examining leaves for lines of symmetry(you would think they were there but….).

We made quick designs out of autumn leaves, twigs and stones.

Connor wrote about what it felt like to be a conker  in autumn.

The conker smells the leaves.

The conker sees darkness

The conker feels cosy

The conker hears the wind

The conker will soon fall off the tree.

 


Welly Walks!

Autumn weather means going for a ‘welly walk’. We found lots of interesting things in the poly-tunnel.

 


Extreme Weather Conditions

As part of their Weather topic P3 have been having fun designing houses to withstand extreme weather conditions.
