  • Pirates Love Underpants Talk4Writing

    Published 30/04/24

    We have been using our story map to learn the story of 'Pirates Love Underpants.'

    Check out the videos of us retelling the story using actions.

    The actions help us to remember the important events and the details that happen in the story. We have used the structure of the story to re-tell the events of the book from the point of view of a pirate on the exciting quest to find the golden underpants. Also see below some examples of our wonderful writing in P3!

  • Speech Festival

    Published 22/04/24

    Well done to all the children for learning the poem 'Afraid of the Dark' over the last few weeks for our whole school Speech Festival. The P3 teachers are so proud of everyone for having the courage to perform in front of their class.

    Five children from P3SG made it through to the semi-final. They performed the poem in front of P1-4 classes on the big stage. Well done to these children and congratulations to Isla and Jack who make it through to the final later this week. We loved your speaking and facial expression!

  • Coding in P3

    Published 17/04/24

    The children in P3 just loved trying out the coding resources that we have here at school. Today the 'Digital Leaders' took the lead and we had the opportunity to:

    • Use Indi cars to create a route
    • Use Microbits to make a code on a laptop
    • Play with the Sphero to create a picture using paint and navigate around a maze- we especially loved this one in P3!
    • Use the Dash robots to race them to the finish line
    • Complete unplugged coding activities such as set arrows in the right direction to guide teddy to the end

    Thank you to the 'Digital Leaders' for being such great role models for the P3's! We really enjoyed all of the stations that you worked so hard to prepare for us!

  • Our First Confession

    Published 13/03/24

    On Tuesday 12th March the Primary 3 children made their First Confession at St Patrick’s Church. We are so impressed with the maturity that the children showed during the Sacrament and with all their preparations- the children have worked very hard learning their prayers, songs and reflecting on how they can make positive choices at school, home and in their community to live like Jesus. We are so proud of all our P3’s!

    Below are some photos from the Bun sale we had to raise funds for an after First Confession treat- a big thank you to all of the children (and mums and dads!) who baked and prepared the buns for this! The children did a great job collecting the money, giving the correct change to their customers and counting the total money when all the buns had been sold.

  • Numeracy Activity Based Learning: Money

    Published 27/02/24

    In P3 we have been learning about money.

    We have set up a shop in our classroom and have been counting amounts of money to buy the items. We have also been looking closely at the coins and discussing what they look like to help us quickly recognise their value.

    We have been using some online games to help us practise our money skills. Here are the links to the games that we have been using for the children to continue practising at home!

  • Superhero Art

    Published 02/02/24

    For this half term our World Around Us topic is 'Superheroes.' We recycled old paintbrushes to make our own superhero characters- look at the photos below to see how great they turned out!

    Alongside this, we linked our topic to our Literacy work. We wrote a description of our character's superpowers, we created a fact file about our own heroes and created sentences using verbs based on a superhero obstacle course- we have been very busy showing off our wonderful ideas in P3!

  • Telling the Time in P3

    Published 16/01/24

    In Primary 3 we are learning to tell the time. Today we made clocks using hula hoops and added labels for o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to.

    Our clocks have two hands - we are learning about how important it is to remember that the longer one shows the minutes and the shorter one shows the hour.

    Miss Greene was very impressed that we worked so well as a team and made sure that everyone in the group had a chance to contribute.
