Friday 22nd January:
Another great week of learning has happened in P3a. We have been so impressed with everything that you have sent us this week. You have been working really hard on your poems, mind maps and number work as well as lots of other things.
Thank you for the poems that you have sent in. Now we have the very difficult task of choosing a winner!
Here are some of the photos of what you have all been doing this week.
We have some fun at the Teams chat at the end of the day. Here is a photo of some of us on a call this week – don’t we look lovely?!
Thank you again to all the adults at home who are helping you to work so hard at home. (We both know what it is like to have small, and big, people at home all day to keep entertained, on task and fed!)
Have a great weekend everyone and we will see you next week. You all deserve a rest – so enjoy whatever you get up to!
Bye for now

Friday 15th January:
Well this is the end of the first week in 2021 and what a different start to term it has been! In class we would normally share our good work and so online we are doing it on Friday through our Magical Moments!
Thank you for sending your work in. Remember this can be done through Learning Journals. Take a look at some of the great work that people have been doing this week. (Please send anything in to us by Thursday 12pm to make sure that we can add it on this page.)
It has been great to ‘check in‘ with you at the end of the day and say hello. We have even managed to play a couple of games together which has been fun! (Hopefully the internet will be kinder to Mrs H next Thursday!)
Next week remember to have a look at the Sway that we have made for you which should have lots of helpful videos and information to help you with your tasks.
In class we normally announce our Sumdog champions on Friday so here they are :
1st place – Kieran 2nd place – Rose and 3rd place – Louis Well done!
See you next week.

Friday 11th December:
This has been a busy week.
In Maths we have been learning about Grid References. We have been making and describing pictures and playing Battleships.
In our topic work we have been making posters about places of interest in Edinburgh and we have been making puppets and acting out the Christmas story.
It was Christmas Jumper Day today and we watched a Pantomime – ‘Oh yes we did’. Don’t we all look really smart in our jumpers and Christmas clothes.
We finished off the week having some fun in the woods. We were all VERY excited in the woods! We climbed trees, played Hide and Seek and even ‘toasted marshmallows on a camp fire.’ (We pretended to do that!)
It has been a great week.

Friday 4th December:
It has been great to be with P3A for the last 2 weeks. We have had lots of fun and we have all worked really hard!
Here are some photos of us working in class. We have been doing some Orienteering activities, learning about directions in maths and we have shown great team work in the woods!
We have also been doing some mapping of our local area. Looking at maps, symbols and keys and we have been learning about neurons.
We are also gearing up for Christmas now that it is December. Do you like our door?!
See you all soon.

Wednesday 18th November:
Last week, P3A ventured outside to do a litter pick around the school! Before heading out, we shared our knowledge about the environment, recycling and the importance of not dropping litter. I was extremely impressed with what P3A already knew and their ability to share information with their peers!
On the litter pick, P3A went around the school to find and throw away different pieces of litter. We found crisp packets, wrappers and even a shoe! P3A were responsible, helpful and enthusiastic!
Thursday 5th November:
Numbers Around the World!
As part of our maths topic, P3A have been learning about numbers around the world. This week we have explored a variety of number systems that have been used throughout history – specifically looking at the Romans!
P3A were able to choose what activity they wanted to complete, including making clocks with Roman numbers, a colour by Roman number and a Roman number code breaker (which proved to be tricky but P3A showed excellent problem solving and teamwork skills!). P3A were superb at choosing tasks that challenged their learning and stimulated their understanding about numbers around the world both past and present – fantastic work P3!
Wednesday 30th September:
This week is Maths Week Scotland – a celebration of the importance of maths in our everyday lives. Today, P3A ventured outside and carried out a maths hunt around the school grounds! We searched high and low for different cards and we were able to work with our talking partners to answer the questions on each. There were all sorts of questions from time to shape to addition so a MASSIVE well done to P3A who put all their maths and numeracy knowledge into activity and were able to complete the hunt successfully! Great work!
Friday 25th September:
This week, P3A have been looking at analogue clocks. As a class, we have learnt about the minute hand and the hour hand, as well as using this to help us work out if it is o’clock, half past, quarter past or quarter to.
To continue with our learning, P3A ventured outside to create our own outdoor clocks with hula hoops, sticks and chalk. The class were excellent at showing different times by moving the minute hand and the hour hand to the correct position. Fantastic work P3A!
Tuesday 22nd September:
The children in Primary 3 have been very busy over the past couple of weeks developing their skills in mixing colours. They have been making secondary colours (green, orange and purple) using the Primary colours (red, blue and yellow) to create these striking Picasso inspired faces. Everyone tried really hard to mix lots of different colours using only red, yellow, blue and white and paint within the lines.
Primary 3 have started learning about Pablo Picasso. We have looked at his famous painting, “The Weeping Woman” which is one of his classic pieces of art from his “cubism” period. Over the next couple of weeks, we plan to recreate our own Picasso inspired images!
Tuesday 15th September:
Patterns and Tiling!
P3A have been extremely busy in mathematics for the past couple of weeks! Since the start of term, we have been looking at the names and properties of different 2D shapes. Last week, we were able to translate this knowledge into creating patterns and tiling. P3A were fantastic at hunting for different tiling examples around the classroom before creating their own using coloured paper! Well done P3A – awesome work!
Tuesday 11th August:
As you will be aware, there have been a few changes over the past couple of months… You have a new teacher and a new classroom!
Hello P3A! My name is Miss Bell and I will be your new Primary 3 teacher! I am extremely excited to meet you all and make this a great school year! I can’t wait to make our classroom a fun and exciting place to learn. Do you have a favourite subject? I will be meeting some of you on Wednesday and some of you on Thursday before we all come to school on Friday! I hope to hear what you have been up to during the summer holidays, as well as what you like to do in your free time and any other interesting facts about yourself!
We are going to be learning in classroom 8. It might look at little different when you come in on Wednesday or Thursday.
And this is the door you will come in at the beginning of the day and leave at the end.
See you all very soon!
Thursday 25th June:
Welcome to P3A!
