World Book Day in P3A

P3A had a really enjoyable Word Book Day. Here’s some of the photos from our day.

We made origami bookmarks and did a treasure hunt based on the book ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’. After break, some of us exchanged our tokens for books and the rest brought them home to be used in a shop. We enjoyed a visit from Mrs Barker who read some stories to the class. It seems a lot of the class are very fond of our current class novel ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets’ as we had lots of magical characters in our room today…thankfully, ‘You Know Who’ didn’t cause too much havoc!

The P3 teachers were also entertained for the day trying to figure out how to sit down in our costumes. Life isn’t easy being a crayon….IMG_00216f92df8c-66b7-4b83-8b48-1a8c5575379e

P3C love World Book Day

P3C had great fun on world book day! They had some fabulous costumes and shared some of their wide taste in reading. They also enjoyed having Ms Gallagher and Hugh’s mum read them a story!

I’m sure these crayons look familiar as well?

P3A National Portrait Gallery

P3A visited the National Portrait Gallery on Thursday as part of our ‘Elements of Art’topic. The kids took part in a workshop called ‘Does a portrait need a face?’ They were all really engaged and had lots of interesting ideas about the paintings. The staff at the NPG really praised the kids about their enthusiasm and ideas!

Super Sewing in P3A

We really enjoyed creating our festive decorations using cross stitching. The kids were super at helping each other and kept trying even if they found it tricky! Thanks to the parents helpers and Mrs Mehmood who helped us, especially to thread needles! The kids did a great job and can’t wait to bring home their decorations for the holidays.

Move over Strictly …

… it’s the Sciennes Dance Show!

Everyone was thrilled and swept up in the magic of the dancing! Mr Hunter was overheard saying, ‘fab-u-lous’! All the dancers and speakers did a brilliant job! What a joy of a Friday morning!

Here is a flavour of the magic!

Fun on the Farm

P3 enjoyed visiting Langhill Dairy Farm today. We got to meet the cows and their calves up close. We also saw the milking parlour and learned all about the dairy industry. We finished the morning by making some butter and we even got to milk a cow!!!! Don’t worry…. it was Charlotte, the plastic cow. We now know what goes into our little milk carton at school.

P3A Langhill Farm

Primary 3 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Langhill Farm today. They got to see how a dairy farm works and how the cows and calves are looked after every day. They learned a lot about dairy products, how much cows eat every day and how cows are milked. They even all got to try milk Charlotte the plastic cow!

Autumn Art

P3A took to the outdoors today to scavenge for leaves for an animal art activity. Needless to say, a massive pile of leaves keeps 30 kids happy and entertained for quite a while! Here’s a snapshot of some of our leafy creations from this afternoon
