Maths Week Scotland 2017 – We had such fun!

Symmetry

We learned about symmetry and drew the other half of a monster to try to make it symmetrical. We tried our best!

'We drew the other part of the drawing and we tried our best!'

Cooperative Teams - Fill the Wallet!

We worked in our home teams to match the value to the coin/note. We then filled our wallets!  We practised using our team roles and were all successful at the challenge!

'It was very challenging!'

Sumdog!

We took part in the Sumdog Contest across Scotland and England. We came 954th out of 4901 schools! Not bad for our first contest!  We will continue to use Sumdog to improve our numeracy skills for home learning and in class.

'We tried our best to go first on the leader board. One of our favourite games is Junk Pile.'

 

11.9.17 – Update

Maths Week Scotland 2017

This week we are taking part in lots of different maths and numeracy activities to celebrate the fact that maths is fun! As part of this, we have entered a Scottish Sumdog Maths Week Contest.  We are trying to have as many children in our class playing Sumdog maths games in class and at home so we can get as high up the leader board as possible!  I have glued each child’s login and password details into their green home learning jotter so you can play at home too.

  • - type Sumdog into search engine
  • - enter login details
  • - have fun playing as many games as you can!

Sumdog will be available as on-going home learning all session so keep playing even after the contest ends of Friday. Good luck!

Reading

Reading will be sent home each week (Monday or Tuesday) with key words to practise as required. Please return every Friday so I can set up for the following week.  Thank you!

 

Welcome back! - August 2017

P3 are settling well into our school routine. We have been doing lots of getting ready to learn activities such as agreeing our class rules and reminding ourselves of the expectations in class and around the school.

P.E.

P3 have P.E. with Mr Stephen on a Monday and a Wednesday.  We will also have class P.E. which we may use on a Thursday. Please ensure that your child brings P.E. kit on these days or keeps P.E. kit in school and that all kit is clearly labelled. Thank you to all those who have already handed one in.  We keep our kit in a box in the classroom.

 

Water Bottles

We are a healthy promoting school so we are keen for your child to drink plenty water throughout the school day.  Your child may wish to bring a water bottle in to class which can be refilled throughout the day at our class sink if required.

 

Keep in Touch

Please don’t hesitate to speak to me after school in the playground if you require further clarification about anything in this newsletter or indeed on any matter relating to your child. I will be happy to help in any way.
