P3A – Miss Bell


Wednesday 30th September:

Maths Week!

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!

Outdoor Clocks!

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!

Miss Bell
