P3 Rm5 Mrs salmond

In Primary 3, we enjoy a soft start each morning to help us settle into school, play with friends, and get ourselves ready for the day. There are lots of different activities that the children have a choice from such as construction, social games, literacy activities and story writing as well as numeracy games that the children have created themselves! This is also a good opportunity for the children to use our Emotions Check-In board to demonstrate how they are feeling to their teacher.

We work hard every day to read and write common words, learn new sounds and apply our knowledge of our sounds to our reading and writing. We also enjoy exploring numbers, taking part in P.E and reflecting on our learning each week. We have been trying different ways to up-level our writing and have been using description bubbles and VCOP to create more detailed sentences. We work hard to demonstrate our Oracy targets and to work our way up the listening ladder. We enjoy learning the Expressive Arts with Mrs Watt on a Monday and Science with Mrs Baptie on a Thursday. We enjoy sharing our achievements and work hard to earn a place on our “Rory’s Wall of Fame” wall. We enjoy learning with our buddy class in Primary 5 and take part in activities such as paired reading and numeracy games with them. Our topic this term has been all about Scotland over the past 100 years and we are shortly about to present our learning at our class assembly – we are very excited to share our learning with our families!

We have the opportunity to earn lots of rewards in class! We really enjoy this about Primary 3. We can earn table points (marbles) in order to be in for a chance of winning table of the week. We earn our points for lots of different reasons e.g., by showing good listening, using manners, being kind and respectful to others and showing good focus during learning.  We are awarded House Points for showing kindness towards others when we are out in the playground and the adults outside help us with this. Perhaps most importantly of all, we have a Recognition Board in our classroom where we have the opportunity to write about what we are proud of for the week. Mrs Salmond then has the really tricky job of selecting a person to receive a trophy for all of their hard work! We wonder who it will be this week?
