Learning About Minibeasts

Welcome to Primary 3

Term 1 

We are very pleased to be back at school and the class have settled in beautifully! The class have adjusted really well to the new routines and we have been enjoying getting to know each other. There have been lots of discussions about what we want to learn in Primary 3 and how we can achieve our targets.


Primary 3 have been very keen to gain new responsibilities so have been taking on new class jobs each week. 

We have started our minibeasts topic which has sparked lots of discussion and curiosity. We were able to explore our school grounds for a minibeast hunt which was very exciting!

To accompany our topic we have started our class novel - James and The Giant Peach, which we are really enjoying so far. 

Our topic allows exciting opportunities for creative writing, art and drama and best of all - lots of outdoor learning! 

We are getting our literacy and maths programmes underway with a "back to basics" focus. In maths this term, we will mainly be focusing on improving our speed and accuracy in simple arithmetic. Primary 3 have been enjoying taking part in active maths lessons and games to support our learning.
