We had great fun creating our firework display inspired art in preparation for Halloween! We also discussed how to stay safe at Halloween including firework safety!

✨More Measuring Magic ✨

We had a lot of fun today measuring our everyday classroom items! We discussed how to ‘estimate’ and make sensible estimations. We used cubes to measure items such as glue, books, scissors, rubbers and pencils! 📚✏️✂️

Measuring Our School


We had great fun this week measuring different parts of our school! We used our hands, feet and even our bodies to measure different parts of the classroom and the school! We discussed concepts such as size, difference, taller and smaller! smiley

Baby Shark Number Bonds 

As well as celebrating Spanish Day on Friday, Primary 3 enjoyed working on number bonds to 10 using the baby shark song! 

We had lots of singing and dancing along to the song! 

Feel free to try this at home (if you're not too sick of the song already surprise...)


This is an example you could use at home...

10+ 0 doo doo doo doo doo doo, 

10 + 0 doo doo doo doo doo doo

10 +0!

This week we read about Harry and his bucketful of Dinosaurs going to school! The children then discussed and wrote all about what they would love to bring to school in the bucket load! We had everything from chocolate, to money and footballs! 

Primary 3 had a great time using our new Numicon!

Today we had a chance to use our new Numicon set for numeracy.

We used it to help our adding to 20! We worked super hard and Miss Curran said it won't be long before we can add really big numbers! Well done Primary 3!
