Don’t Worry, Be Happy- Talk and Tell Sessions

Hello everyone.
I hope you are all staying safe and enjoying the snow ⛄️
I wanted to let everyone know that if you had a Talk and Tell session booked for Wednesday or Thursday of this week and have missed it due to the snow storm, that I will be in touch with you next week to rearrange your appointment. You will not miss out on your Talk and Tell time, it will just be at a different time.
Stay safe and warm and I shall see you next week.

Primary 3’s Week

We had another fantastic week of learning in Primary 3!

On Tuesday we had PC Smith visit us to teach us a special program called ‘Sticks and Stones’. In ‘Sticks and Stones’ we all learnt the importance of not saying mean things to others. At the end some of us even got to try on PC Smith’s handcuffs!

Wednesday afternoon we became inventors. We had to make an object that could move only by pushing or pulling it. To make our objects we followed our plans the we had made a couple days earlier. Through trying to make our objects the first time some of us needed to make changes or “adapt” our plans. This meant that a lot of us learnt how to make our objects through trial and error. Keeley learnt that using the double sided tape helped to hold her wheels of her wagon on, where as Lucia learnt that sellotape was the best option for her castle. We could not have made our fantastic inventions though without the kind donations of; boxes, bottles, double sided tape, coloured foil, string and many more objects, from our families. Thank you very much families!

This week in Primary 3 we are going to have another busy week of learning, with looking at number line addition, magnets, using adjectives in our Big Writing and learning how to read with expression when reading our stories.

Homework Week 8 Term 1

 

Hello Families,

 

I hope that you all had a brilliant weekend. Please find the homework below for the week beginning 3/10/16-7/10/16. I have made a couple of changes with the homework to better suit the needs of your child. I have attached a list of word cards to focus on with your child for the week. Starting Wednesday this week your child will have 1:1 time with one of our fantastic learning assistants to test how well your child knows the words, and then the next set will be given. The words that will be highlighted are the words that your child read correctly, but please continue to practice those words with them. If you would like two copies of the words please come and see me so you can play games like memory, snap, go fish or you can just use them as flashcards. Spelling elephants is also starting this week and your child will have 1:1 time with Mrs Pusko to test the spelling. In your child’s homework bag, there will be a grid of spelling practice choices. Please let your child pick what activity they would like to do to complete this week’s spelling. If you have any questions, or any feedback on the homework please come and let me know or write it in your child’s homework book.

 

Reading:

 

Please read this text with your child at least 3 times during the week focusing on the sounds, the green and the red words in the story.

 

Please practice the word cards that are attached with your child. Feel free to play a game with the cards or use them as flashcards.

PS. This week for our topic we are beginning to make our push and pull objects. Children have made their design plan in class last week and are using resources such as cardboard boxes, milk bottles, bottle lids, string, wool, magazines etc. If you could please donate some of these resources for Wednesday’s lesson that would be greatly appreciated!

Primary 3’s Reflection

We have had a great week of learning in Primary 3!

 

Our Big Writing topic this week was all about exploring nocturnal animals. Everyone loved researching an animal and then having a go at writing an information report. Sol learnt that wolves can run up to 65km an hour and Eve learnt that a group of owls is called a Parliament.

 

In Maths we had our last week exploring 2D shapes, 3D objects and lines of symmetry. Jamie, Megan, Mark and Zed enjoyed making 3D objects out of lolly sticks. Olly, Lucia, Maci, Archie and Daniella thought it was great when we made reflective patterns for our partners to copy.

 

Next week for our topic we are going to begin to make a push or a pull object. Everyone has made a plan of what they would like theirs to look like and are very excited to start the build.

 

On Tuesday next week we are going to be very lucky and having some police visiting St. Martins to teach us all about a special program called “Sticks and Stones”.

 

Have a great and restful weekend!
