P3 Trip to Edinburgh Castle

On Monday, the children from Primary 3 went on a trip to visit Edinburgh Castle. Although the castle was very busy, they got to visit all of the key parts including, The Crown Jewels, the Main Hall, St  Margaret’s Chapel, Mons Meg and we even had time to watch the one’o’clock gun being fired.

The children really enjoyed the trip as we also got to visit St Giles Cathedral and Princess street Gardens. Having seen all of these famous landmarks will help the children even further with their current learning context, ‘All about Edinburgh’.

Gary Northfield came to school because he wanted to show his book. It was called Julius Zebra it was funny. Gary Northfield talked about his book and comics. Jenny got to be a soldier and she got to tiptoe around the room.

Maud was on a high cliff she was one of the five dragons. Maud was very sad because the other dragons were very mean to Maud and Maud only had one friend which was mouse. Mouse said you should believe in yourself. Maud didn’t believe him. Then Maud tried to fly then she flew and she filled the sky with clouds of colour.
[Curtis P3A]

Maud was on a high cliff, she was one of the five dragons, she was not like the other dragons. Maud was really sad because the other dragons were really mean to her and she only had one friend, her name was Mouse. Mouse kept telling Maud to believe in herself. Maud didn’t believe Mouse. One day it was Brimlads five hundredth and fifty fifth birthday, and finally Maud decided she would fly with Mouse.

Show and Tell Friday was so fascinating today. We heard about a first wedding, how to make a homemade spinner and how to press flowers.

These students did a fabulous job of sharing their artwork, new pencil case and holiday news. The questions the talks generate are wonderful too! Keep it up P3A!

P3 students all have a chance to bring something of interest into school on a Friday for Show and Tell. This week we heard about football success, running achievements and completing a summer reading challenge at our local library. We love hearing about your sports and hobbies!


Hula-Hoops Fun in PE!

The children in P3A and P3B were waaaaaaaaay better than Mr O’Connell and Mrs Mathieson!


Celebrating Books in P3

What an exciting start we have had to the school year!

In just our first full week, we went on a trip to the Edinburgh International Book Festival to see Naomi Howarth – she was amazing! She discussed her book The Night Dragon and we all had a go at drawing a dragon.

Back at school, we met Gary Northfield and heard all about his career in art and his books featuring Julius Zebra. Again we got advice on how to draw his character!

Some of us bought books and also got them signed!


Zero Waste Super Heroes

Angela from Changeworks came to visit and taught us how to reduce and recycle our rubbish. We all recycled old CDs to make ‘Zero Waste Medallions’.

We even had a bag made from old packets!
