P3 Map of the Week

Good morning P3!

I have uploaded the timetable for the week. All resources from Monday to Friday are available on the Google Classroom so you can make it as flexible for you as you wish!

You also have time in the afternoons to work on a skill or interest of you own. Please share these with us on the Stream!

Here is to another excellent week!

Take care

Emergency Provision for Keyworkers Update

STATEMENT REGARDING ESSENTIAL CHILDCARE
CORONAVIRUS 19 – LATEST UPDATE FROM THE FIRST MINISTER
The First Minister has just reiterated that following the closure of schools, childcare being established in each local authority is emergency provision for frontline keyworkers where there is no-one else in the house to look after your child and no other alternative. East Lothian will be opening a small number of Children’s Hubs but we need to ensure that those parents who really need a place get it. Please help us and don’t apply for a place unless it is absolutely essential. We are required to keep numbers in the hubs to an absolute minimum and will be prioritising Category 1 keyworkers in the first instance.

P3 Home Learning

Good evening P3!

I have attached the P3 Home Learning Timetable for this week.

Each day I will put a detailed timetable with learning intentions and success criteria on the P3 Google Classroom with any resources you might need.

Remember our Learning Hero this week: INDEPENDENCE!

I look forward to seeing all your learning 🙂

Every day is a learning day!

Every day is a learning day! We had a busy staff development session this week.

Mrs McDonald led us all as we looked at how French and German are being taught in school – we looked at the feedback from our pupils too and all the teachers made a plan for their class!

Working together, we looked at how we plan for learning and teaching. We shared good ideas and asked questions of each other to improve experiences for our learners. We used the Connect, Extend,Challenge thinking routine.

We used Chalk Talk to explore the ELC Pedagogy Placemats – we asked ourselves how do they match our practice and ethos in school? What can we learn from them?

East Linton Learning Heroes So Far…

After a exciting return to school in August, the children have been continuing to work hard to develop their learning powers. Here are some of our Learning Heroes so far this year. Please now keep up to date weekly on our school Twitter page @EastLintonPS! :0)

Our First Term in P3

P3 have been exceptionally busy in their first term of Primary 3. Here is a wee snapshot of what we have been up to:

LITERACY

We have been learning to include VCOP in our writing to make it magical, magnificent and extremely delightful (some of the words P3 have added to our WOW wall!). We have also been making posters thinking about layout, key information and making them eye-catching!

We have read some very funny books like The Twits and There’s a Pharaoh in my Bath!

NUMERACY

We have spent a long time deepening our understanding of number and increasing the range of numbers we know. We are now read to move on to looking at addition and subtraction strategies! Yay!

MATHS

We have been enjoying working with 2D and 3D shapes and moving on to using directional language. We have been using angles, compass points and grid references to help us follow and give directions. We even created our own town map to help us!

HEALTH AND WELLBEING

We looked at and worked on developing our growth mindsets. We thought about mistakes and how they are a part of learning, discussed the learning pit and what is says about how we learn, and found out about successful people who never gave up! We have also been focussing on the value of respect and we will be continuing to grow a garden of respect in our classroom!

TECHNOLOGY

In ICT we have been practising out Google Doc skills. We looked at changing fonts, using old and underline and even adding pictures! We created tremendous posters that we are very proud of!

SOCIAL STUDIES

As you probably know, P3 were discovering all about Ancient Egypt. We became Egyptians! We made papyrus paper, mummified tomatoes, wrote in hieroglyphs and used Egyptian numbers and even danced like Egyptians! We also found out lots about Egyptian Gods, Tutankhamun and ever held ACTUAL Egyptian artefacts at the Museum! We have thoroughly enjoyed our topic, so much so, that we are going to be doing our assembly after the October break on it!

FRENCH

We have been learning all about the days of the week, months of the year and numbers to 31 in French. We will soon be able to say the date each morning! How exciting. Also, we found out lots about the country France on European Languages Day! C’est super!

Here are a selection of photos from the term. I have everyone has a lovely relaxing week! 🙂
