It’s been another week full of new opportunities for P3. Of course all the usual stuff was there – reading, spelling, handwriting, maths (time & problem solving), daily run etc But there was much more to it than that. We made some rather large watches so we could practice telling the time. In art we made Ancient Egyptian inspired hieroglyphic wax resist pictures and did our share on the joint P3/P4 giant Christmas hall display.  We all took part in the Star Reader activity which is the beginning of the accelerated reader programme. Some of us will start on AR books next week while others will go on later in the year.  The dance instructor came in to school and showed us how to do the waltz, tango and cha cha. They were a lot of fun. In music with Mrs Davies, we started to learn the Christmas songs that will be sung at the tree lighting ceremony in December. The author John Farnell came into school and talked to us and the P3 children from Salton, Humbie and Sanderson’s Wynd who also came to listen. He made us laugh with his stories and illustrations. And in the woods we made assault courses and fitness stations. We got to try them all out.
