P3 Maths Week #MathsWeekScot

P3 have spent Maths Week Scotland learning about Position and movement.

We have learned new vocabulary to help us give and follow and draw directions.

We then applied this knowledge to program a Beebot robot to move around a grid.

For outdoor learning this week, everyone enjoyed working with their partners to create a ‘treasure hunt,’ whereby we hid 3 objects, then directed our friends to find the ‘treasure.’

P3 Authors Live Event Rachel Bright

We had the pleasure of joining a Live Authors Event with the Scottish Book Trust and BBC Learning Scotland this week

The author we listened to was Rachel Bright who wrote the books “The squirrels who squabbled” and “The Lion inside.” We enjoyed listening to her new story for the first time and had an opportunity to learn how to draw from the book’s illustrator, Jim Field!

We tweeted into the programme and had our class name and school mentioned LIVE ON AIR as they asked our question: What was her favourite story? The answer: The never-ending story.

The top it off, Rachel said our drawings of Goldie the Gecko were great!

Missing Clothes, Property and Snack Boxes

We are only a few days into the new school year and already we are having reports of lost property.

The biggest cause of lost property in school is not the children leaving it somewhere, we expect that and try to gather it.

The biggest cause of lost property in school is unlabelled items.

With so many children wearing identically sized clothes, either uniform or sourced from the same shops, it is inevitable that confusion occurs and very often isn’t spotted at home.

The same is true of lunch boxes, water bottles and snack bags. There will definitly be anohter child or more with the same item.

Please label with, or write on all items and clothing, the child’s name and ideally surname and class as well.
