Good morning P3
I hope everyone is all ready for a great day ahead. Some super photos have been sent in already this week.
Take a look at Jakob and his fantastic spelling flower – good job Jakob!
Willow went mud larking with her sisters Mabel and Violet. They had fun on a rope swing and even found some Jerusalem artichokes.
This looks like fantastic maths work being done by Sebastian – great to see.
And here is some creative Chemistry from Katie. Well done!
Reuben has created an amazing rocket – looks terrific Reuben!
Before you begin each task today remember to date your work.
The short date for maths – 31.3.20
The long date for literacy – Tuesday 31st March 2020
Try to complete a page of your maths workbook today – 2 if you feel like a challenge. Remember to ask a grown up to check your work as you go along.
For literacy have a shot at the following reading challenge once you have read a few more pages of your reading book:
Write 5 questions you could ask someone to find out if they have read the book carefully.
As the weather is getting better it’s definitely feeling more like Spring. This is a great time of year to find inspiration in nature for creating art work.
Using any materials you like create your own Spring picture – have a look in your garden or on the computer for some ideas. I’m looking forward to seeing them!
Have a super Easter holiday when it comes everyone!

Good morning everyone!
I hope you have all had a fun weekend and are all ready to begin week 2 of our home learning.
The weather is meant to be lovely and sunny today so try to spend some time in your garden if you can.
Begin your day by being Timetable Chief and deciding what order you would like to do your activities today.
As it is Monday, it would be great if you could write about not just your weekend but how you found your first week of learning at home. It’s such a new experience for us all – it would be good to take time to think about what you did and how you felt.
Huge well done to Sophie for working so hard on her handwriting!
As well as writing your diary, have a go at a spelling activity from your grid – perhaps writing rainbow words or creating a spelling flower? You choose.
For maths, carry on with the next page in your workbook. If you haven’t already, take a look at Dyslexia Gold. Everyone can now log in and have a go at the times tables activities. It’s a lot of fun!
If you are feeling creative there are lots of fantastic lego challenges on the school website. I know that some of you have made some amazing models already!
The challenge on Day 6 is “You are stuck on Mars and need to build a new ship to get home.” Do you think you could design your own Spaceship? Give it a go.
I hope you all have a fantastic day everyone! Keep the photos coming if you can.

Good morning P3
I can’t believe it is Friday already! Week 1 of our home learning has gone so quickly. It’s been fantastic to see all your pictures and read your messages to keep up with what you have been doing. You have been so busy – well done everyone!
It was lovely to see Lewis’ amazing research about Skara Brae – fantastic work Lewis! Well done also to Finn and Jamie for your science work!
Here are a few ideas for what you could do today:
If you are feeling energetic you could join in with Joe Wicks – his lesson starts at 9am. Give it a go – it’s a lot of fun!
For maths how about making a times table game like one of the games we have been using at our Times Table Station? Maybe someone at home could play it with you.
Continue to work on either your literacy booklet or your textbook. Do remember to take care to write as neatly as you can.
Keep up with your spelling words – just a short time working on them every day will make you a super speller!
Remember to read a few pages of your reading book each day too – read to someone in your house if you can – I’m sure they’ll love listening to you.
I am missing you all P3!
Keep in touch and have a super weekend.

Good Morning again Primary 3
How are you all managing today?
I am very much enjoying seeing the variety of types of learning going on inside your homes as well as out in your gardens (what lovely outside spaces you all have)!
Super to see Lomond and Finn busy focussing carefully on handwriting well done boys, and Rhys showing some very skilfull football and tennis moves!
Finn has also been following the science experiments and applying this VERY successfully to make this absolutely amazing looking ‘lava lamp’, absolutely brilliant Finn.
Once you have organised your timetable , I suggest an activity from your maths home learning wall. You may want to complete this in the back of your purple jotter.
Perhaps you could complete a page of your handwriting as well. Before you start , you may try choosing an audio book to enjoy whilst you write: Audible.
See if you can find some materials or construction/recycling items to create a 3D rainbow ….we noticed one today made of lego! Perhaps you can find things in the kitchen, garden, recycling….. I can’t wait to see photos Primary 3.
If you can remember, tell your grown up how rainbows are made and what the droplets do to the light.
Don’t forget to make a little time to read in your den.

Good Morning Primary 3
Well done for getting to Wednesday! It has been lovely seeing photos of your activities happening and reading messages. We loved seeing Jakob’s quiet retreat that he built yesterday!
It was also great to see Rhys hard at work on his writing too! Keep it up!
In my house we are VERY glad that the weather has been dry and a little sunny as this means getting some fresh air and exercise in the garden is really pleasant. This morning ( whilst I put the washing out) Jude gave our cat Lottie exercise on her harness and Eva did some pictures and designs on the ground with chalks.
For today’s learning, let’s keep going with being your own Timetable Chief and choosing what order you complete activities today. ( I would love to see some of your pictures if anyone would like to send a photo.)
Don’t forget to include or add new activities for some days….perhaps a ‘help my grown up’ ‘ or ‘listen to some music’ pictures could be added. ( Relaxing Music & Birds Singing has calming tracks)
In your purple jotters, let’s continue spelling and practicing our words by choosing an activity from your spelling sheet.
Use the look, say, cover, write and check method. Use the blank or lined part depending on your activity.
Some of you may go on to add some of your own sentences including an underlined spelling word for each sentence, capital letters to start and full stops to finish.
Some of you may add connectives to make slightly longer sentences and a Wow word/adjective as well.
Continue with the next page of your maths workbooks and practicing your times tables.
Use ‘ topmarks maths’ and choose Times Tables games category to practice and speed up your knowledge of times tables.
Have a good day Primary 3 and keep in touch !
Tuesday 24th March 2020
Good morning Primary 3
It was great to hear how some of you got on with your learning yesterday – well done everyone!
If you have made your timetable, begin your morning by deciding what order you would like to do your activities in. How exciting to be able to choose!
I suggest having a go at another literacy/ spelling task and perhaps a little handwriting too. Remember to focus on the size of your letters. Best to do a small amount really well.
For maths carry on with the next page in your booklet. It would also be fantastic if you could choose a times table to practise too.
Lots of boys and girls are making rainbows for their windows to make people smile as they walk past – give it a go and make yours an amazing one!
Have a great day everybody!
Monday 23rd March 2020
Good morning everyone.
I hope you have all had a super weekend. The next few weeks will be a little different to what we normally do but I hope you enjoy working on the activities in your folder.
As this is the first day of learning at home perhaps everyone can be the “Timetable Chief!” It could be fun to make your own pictures and use them to organise your own timetable each day.
Have a look in your folders – you’ll find lots of different activities. Once you get started it would be fantastic if you could complete a maths page, a literacy/spelling task and a few pages of your reading book each day. Take care to write the date on all your pieces of work and complete them in your very best handwriting. Take your time to complete each task as well as you can.
To begin the week it would be great to write about your weekend as we often do on a Monday morning at school. Do this in your new lined jotter. Add a picture if you can. For maths, complete the first new page in your workbook.
Ask a grown up to check that your work is correct as you go along.
I’d love to hear how you are getting on – good luck!
