Hi Everyone

Apologies for giving everyone the wrong information, the Children in Need Bake Sale was on Friday 15 November and not Thursday 14 as I told the class.

We have an Edinburgh University student teacher with the class until 11th December  . Her name is Yifan Thomson.


This week we have been looking at different subtraction strategies. Please see the home learning blog for ideas to support your child with this.

Next week we will be looking at time.


We wrote sentences to describe Edinburgh castle using punctuation and finger spaces. We were trying to use connectives (because, but, and, so, then) and adjectives to make our writing more interesting.

We have really enjoyed listening to everybody’s talks about their favourite books. Lovely to see the wide variety of books and witness the children’s enthusiasm for reading.  We haven’t managed to listen to everyone but we will continue with this next week.

In handwriting we practised forming the letters f j and g. Some of the children found this quite challenging but everyone tried really hard. Keep practising!

PE- Ball Skills

We were practising controlling the ball by dribbling using our hands and feet.


This week was anti- bullying week, we discussed what bullying actually means and watched a couple of short films which showed different school scenarios. We finished by saying something kind about the person sitting next to us and as a class decided that we would #choosekindness. Please read through the guide in your child’s purple folder.


We revised our weather phrases from last week and thought of  a mime for each one to help us remember.

Have a good weekend.

Mrs Munro, Mrs Bailey and P3M
