We have enjoyed a busy week of learning in P3M!
Literacy – Reading, Writing, Listening and Talking and Spelling
We have been learning to summarise a story. This means we have to write the book and what happens but not in much detail so it is just the important parts. We have worked hard on our reading in groups and have enjoyed different books. We have also been learning to identify our favourite part and using more detailed sentences to explain it.
We have been learning all about words which have an ea spelling in them as our weekly rule. We learnt about some tricky words that sound the same for example steal (when someone takes something) and steel (a type of strong metal). Other words that follow our rule are: seal, leaf and dream.
In our writing we have been learning to check for a capital letter and full stop in all of our sentences.
Maths and Numeracy
We have been learning about how to count in 2s and 5s. We have been learning all about how to add numbers to make a total. We were working hard on some number sums to help us. We have been learning to use a number line to help us ‘jump’ and count.
In our number work we have also worked hard on our number bonds (ways to add 2 numbers) to make 10 and 20.
With Mrs Ritchie we really enjoyed learning about sound and vibration in our Science work. We learnt that if you make a sound there will be sound waves from it. We had a chance to play with an instrument and watch the vibrations in water when we did this.
In our PE lessons we have
been learning rugby skills. We use our two hands to hit or score a try.
you for all of your help and support this term and well done Primary 3 for
working so hard!
Have a fantastic holiday and we look forward to seeing you all back on Wednesday 23rd October.
