P3As Marvellous Medicine

*No Grandmas were harmed in the making of this medicine* Continuing with our instruction writing and linking to our recent class novel ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’, P3A created a concoction of our own. We talked about the order we would put in our ingredients and what our bossy sentence would be as we made our medicine! We all tried a spoonful at the end, thankfully with no side effects apart from a mini sugar rush. But that just gave us extra energy to do our instruction writing!

Pizza Express

P3A ventured to Pizza Express for their first class trip this year to become professional pizza chefs for the day! There we met Dexter who helped us follow the steps to make our very own tasty cheese pizzas. The rain held off long enough for us to sit outside and enjoy a slice or two before we went back to school. A big thank you to Hamish’s mum, Leo’s mum, Annie’s mum and Mrs Mehmood for accompanying us on a thoroughly enjoyable trip.

Making a mess! P3A

We have been focusing on instruction writing in primary three this term. We have been learning about ‘bossy verbs’ and other features of instruction writing. We followed the instructions to conduct the experiment Make a Mess… There was lots of glitter, laughter, excitement, foam, goo, sticky fingers, a strong smell of vinegar and (thankfully) some table cloths!

Outdoor Maths

P3A went outdoors to practise their counting.Using chalk we drew lots of empty number lines and hopscotches and practised counting forwards and backwards as we jumped. We worked

in pairs and small groups and gave each other a starting number to count forwards or backwards from…some of us even counted in 2s, 5s and 10s as we hopped too!
