Mr Macaw's travels

Read about a snowy weekend with Jack and the last of the Clan Macaw with Liam on Mr Macaw's blog.
Mr Macaw is getting into the Christmas spirit and is looking forward to spending his Christmas holidays at Miss McCurdy's house!

Christmas Activities

We all wrote letters to Santa last week and today a big envelope arrived in our classroom with replies from Santa!  There was even a special video message for Jamie from the North Pole!

We had our Christmas party with the other Primary 3 classes. We had great fun playing games in the Gym Hall before we had some snacks in our classes. Everyone looked great in their party clothes!

Christmas Concert

We had a great time performing our song at the Christmas Concert.  We sang 'Frosty the Snowman' and our own  'Frosty'  came alive on the stage (with a bit of magic from the Magician) and danced across the stage with the other children.

Making Badges

Our 'Badgers' company has received lots of orders this week. We have been sorting the orders and making lists for each class.

We practised cutting out circles and then each group chose the best people to cut out the badge designs from the order forms. We also have to label them with names so that they don't get lost.

Mrs Gray came into our class to show us how the badge making machine works and we are looking forward to making the badges. The designs people have been sending in look very colourful!

Primary 3 have been working hard on their enterprise topic.  Miss McCabe helped us to set up our co-operative learning groups to make and sell badges.

Our business is called ‘The Badgers’ and we have already visited classes to find out what sort of badges they would like to buy and what price they would be willing to pay.
We put the results onto graphs using the pictogram website at http://gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/numbers/pictogram/pictogram.htm
The Advertising group have been choosing the best posters to advertise our badges and we are busy making order forms to give to classes.

We have been writing about monsters.  First of all we made our monsters and gave them names.  Then we had to write good descriptions about what they looked like, their personalities and how they behaved.  We peer- assessed them and they will be going up on the wall soon.  
Firstly we chose the monster's head.

Then we cut out a body.

And finally we chose some legs or a tail.

After we made our monsters we wrote about them using good WOW words.

Mr Macaw can't wait to visit Craig's house!
Primary 3b have been learning to tell the time in maths this week.  We looked at a big clock on the smartboard and used our mini whiteboard clocks to draw what time we thought it was.

We have started to learn our song for the Christmas Concert and Mr Frosty hopes it will be ready on time!

You can read about Craig's weekend with Mr Macaw.
