Here is an example created by Amy and her buddy:

# Guess, Check and Improve

Primary 3 have been learning about problem solving in maths. Set 1 have been working individually, in pairs and in small groups to solve number and shape problems. At the beginning of the first lesson we all discussed ways to work out the answers to our problems. We realised that sometimes there is no set way to solve the problem and sometimes we had to make an educated guess! After making a guess, we checked our solution to see if it worked and then we made any necessary changes to improve our solution. After working on some number problems we looked at tangrams. This was really fun and we are now using a set of seven shapes to make pictures to use on our maths display in our classroom. Watch this space for some pictures!

On Monday 15th March. P4 will be building shelters. Please remember to wear warm and waterproof clothing. It will be cold (and may be wet).

We will take pictures so remember to check the website and see us in action!

# World Book Day 2010

It is a very important day today as it is World Book Day and we have all been thinking about how important it is to be able to read and getting involved in lots of different reading activities.

We all got a £1.00  book token to spend on a new book.

At 10.30am many classes switched on to watch Michael Rosen live in their classroom, joining 80,000 other children doing exactly the same thing.

Law Primary has registered to become a fair trade school and a shop has been set up selling fair trade goods. Over the next month all year stages will have an opportunity to shop there and it will be run by primary 6. This is just one of the initiatives planned for the future.

Durign the next fortnight the whole school are engaged in learning all about fair trade over the next few weeks and also doing a multicultural focus which will come to a crescendo near the end of term when we have a Malawi Day.

There are all sorts of activities going on around the school and you can read about them on our different blogs. Please click the links below if you wish to know more about these issues.

# Getting in the Christmas spirit in P3b…..

Well, on Monday all the P1’s, P2’s and P3’s were treated to a BRILLIANT pantomime performance of Goldilocks. It was so funny and we all got so involved in the story we nearly screamed the school walls down!
In class we’ve been making some Christmas crafts too. We made our own advent calendar using our origami skills. By carefully folding our squares of paper we each made an advent basket for each day leading up to Christmas Day.
We also have each made our own 3D Christmas trees with snow sprinkled on the ends of the branches. Christmas is definitely on its way!
