With Growth Mindset being a key issue for PPS, particularly looking at Resilience and better life skills to help both in and out of school…..here are some more resources. Big Deal Little Deal has already been shared after being introduced in school…have a look and see the little video and post explaining it for the kids and ourselves.
Growth Mindset pocket book for Staff and others. (This can also be purchased from Amazon if you fancy using it more yourself as some parents are now doing).
And another wonderful video which explains a lot of Growth Mindset, ‘in action’.
For the starry eyed amongst you, here is a link to see the recent P3 trip to the Royal Observatory. And here is another to see how P3 got on when Shonagh the drama teacher came in to retell the story (or at least the first half of the story) of Hansel & Gretel
Don’t forget you can check in each week to see how P3 are getting on at their own class blog https://www.edubuzz.org/p3pps/
Primary 3 have been problem solving this afternoon. The P6 children created their own problem solving activities which the P3 children have been trying to do. P3 really enjoyed it – thank you P6.
Today all of P3 went to Tranent to take part in a football festival. Half the children played 5-a-side games whilst the other half took part in practices. They then all swapped over.
Everyone had a great time.
Primary 3 visited a workshop on Energy & Forces at Seton Collegiate Church. Peter the Stonemason showed us various demonstrations showing how medieval builders built buildings like the church.
Primary 3 are proud to present

Presented at PPS on Thursday 29th March 2012
Primary 3 & Primary 6 got together during Technologies Week to recreate Professor Heinz Wolff’s Great Egg Race. The challenge was to create a vehicle, powered only by a single rubber band, to carry an egg as quickly as possible over a 5m course.
This clip shows some of the contestants taking part in the race.
- We used ready mixed paint to create the blue sky.
- We sponged white paint to create the clouds.
- We used wax crayons and thick marker pens to create the hills.
- We used oil pastels on black paper to create the field of flowers.
- We used sand mixed with paint to create the beach.
- We used wax resist and water colour paints to create the sea.
- We used felt pens to create the house.
There are more on display on the wall outside our classroom.
