Tick tock – look at our clocks

Primary 3 have been working really hard with their families to design and create entries for our P3 Clock Competition. The standard is high and their imagination and creativity has blown us away yet again! Well done everyone who has joined in.

The clocks will be on display in the P3 classroom all week. Families and friends are welcome to come in and view them either before or after school.

It is going to be an incredibly difficult job judging winners from such a fabulous collection of entries. Here are all the pupils proudly showing off their masterpieces! Which ones would you vote for?

 

 

Step in Time

This term Primary 3 have been learning about telling the time and this afternoon they welcomed parents, grandparents, aunties and sisters into school to see how they have been learning in class. Everyone took part in different activities with the children from making cut and flap clocks, telling the time lotto and digital/analogue games. We started off by teaching the visitors our Clock Rap and some of the children led us in this. Using different voices like angry, posh or silly made everyone laugh.Here is Olivia leading us in silly voices.

Everyone went home with a bag full of resources for helping to support learning in telling the time. We also launched our Design a Clock Competition – the children are excited about transforming their clocks using their creativity and imaginations. Watch this space for entries in a few weeks time. Thank you to all those who were able to come along and support their child for this event.

 

P3 Parent Workshop

Thank you to all the parents who came along to Primary 3’s parent session on number sequences. The children really enjoyed showing their family members what they are learning in school and having them join in with games and activities. Everyone took home numeracy bags with resources for supporting numeracy development at home. We look forward to seeing you again at our next session in Term 2.

Working out Percentages

Last week in Mrs Northcott’s Maths set, the Purple group were working on working out percentages of a quantity.

We used money to help us understand.

First, we used our dividing skills to calculate the percentage of a quantity.

Then we took it a step further- we asked ourselves “How much does it cost now?”

We used take away sums to find the answer.

We decided to put this into a real life context by making adverts for an imaginary shop. These imaginary shops were all having sales! We incorporated our ICT skills to display our learning.

Take a look at some of our really great adverts! Do you think they are offering good deals?
