Scotland topic

Primary 3 have been having fun learning some Scottish Country Dances during their Scotland topic.  You can see them here trying out a Canadian Barn Dance.  We have just started practising the Gay Gordons which is a little more tricky!

Goggs has been helping us to learn about scottish landscapes and we are making a giant wall map of the River Clyde along with the other Primary 3 classes. We have also written some sense poems about scottish waterfalls and we are going to try videoing ourselves reciting our poems.

We have been using http://www.tutpup.com to help us improve our addition, subtraction and tables during active maths.  This website lets us play maths games with children from all over the world at our own level.

Marcus Macaulay is our new anti-bullying rep and Kyle Bunch is our eco-school rep.  They will be feeding back information to the class from their respective groups.

Meet Primary 3b

Primary 3b are back at school after the summer holidays and raring to go!  We drew each other's faces and then interviewed each other to find out some facts about our friends that we didn't know before.

Primary 3 have been showing off the beautiful handwriting they learned in Primary 2 - let's hope they keep up the good work!

We got together and worked co-operatively to make a class charter and then we all signed it.

We've also been planning this term's topic.  We made a learning plan all about Scotland.

We took advantage of a little spell of sunshine and went outdoors to draw a map of Scotland in the playground.  We managed to mark some of the main cities in Scotland.
