The Class of Primary 3
Hello P3, I hope you are all keeping well and working hard at your tasks each day. I hope you've been able to enjoy the weather too. I have been going for a walk each day and have spotted some of you while I have been out and about round Kinallen!
I'm uploading a powerpoint to remind us what an adjective is.
Perhaps you could write a story about what you have been getting up to (or perhaps it might be what you would like to be getting up to!)
Remember to think about the setting (your home) and the characters in your story.
Remember also to think about planning the beginning, the middle and the end of your story.
Try to use as many juicy adjectives to describe your setting and your characters.
Perhaps there might even be an imaginary character in your story!
It's your story. There are no right or wrong ideas - but try to keep your capitals and punctuation in mind when you are checking your work.
I hope you're all keeping well and your children have been able to work through the packs which were sent home. We are hoping to switch to on-line learning from 20th April which means that I will be posting tasks on this web page on a weekly basis. The tasks will be a mixture of purple mash tasks - which will be set up as 'To Dos' on your child's account - and activities which can be accessed from here.
We are in the middle of very challenging times and it is important that the work which is set does not become a source of stress for either you or your child. Daily tasks will be set, but can be completed at any stage during that week. I would encourage you to keep reading with your children and to practise simple number bonds and high frequency spellings regularly.
Please stay safe and remember, we don't expect you to be teachers. Spend time learning together and let them show you what they can already do - they are already little experts in lots of ways! I can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org if any of the children would like to send pictures of their work. 👩🏻🦰

Over the next few weeks we will be taking a look at the World Around Us. It's Springtime! My favourite season.🌺 I have attached a powerpoint for you to read with someone in your house. Then I would love you to try to find some of the signs of spring when you are out for your daily exercise. We are so privileged to live out in the countryside with lots of beautiful plants, flowers and trees. If we are quiet and listen carefully we can hear the birds singing. I have loved hearing all of the different bird songs when I have been on my walks .🌳🦋🦅
Have you heard the Red Kites? They have been keeping an eye on us from above. If you listen carefully you can hear their very distinctive cry. I am sure you have seen the little lambs and perhaps even some chicks.🐤🐑 Keep your ears and eyes open for lots of the signs of spring.
