Collaborative working in P3B

Last week, Primary 3B worked collaboratively to learn about Fishing in Scotland. Each group were asked to research one of the following questions:
- Why is fishing important in Scotland?
- What are the dangers of fishing?
- What kinds of fish can be found around Scotland?
- What methods are used to fish in Scotland?

After collecting and displaying their information, the children then took on the teaching role and shared what they had learned with their classmates. The children did a really fantastic job, and worked brilliantly together.

Well done, P3!

Chefs in the Making

Today P3B launched their new Food and Farming topic with a trip to Pizza Express on George IV Bridge. 

After washing their hands the children were able to feel the dough and learned six of the seven ingredients required to make it- Pizza Express were very tight lipped about the seventh! They were able to prepare their very own Margarita pizzas and got to taste a variety of different toppings such as: basil, tomatoes, olives, peppers and pepperoni. 

A fun day had by all.

 A very excited Primary 3!

I think it's a bit hot for Jack!

Planting in P3

A big thank you to the team of parents who helped Primary 3 with the planting. P3B very much enjoyed tasting the pea shoots that we have been growing over the past few months. Their only wish was that we had planted lots more!

Bring a Toy Tuesdays for P3B

P3B have really enjoyed their new topic so far. Last week for 'Bring a Toy Tuesday' the children enjoyed playing some board games together. It has been an excellent opportunity to explore different games and develop the skills required to play successfully with one another.

P3B Dance Show

We hope that you all enjoyed the P3 Dance Show on Friday. The children worked extremely hard to learn their 3 dances and they were so excited to share them with you. We're sure you'll all agree that they were fantastic- we are all very proud. Well done P3.

So far in our Elements of Art topic we have explored: colour, line and shape. This week we have been using lots of different media to learn about tone and how black and white can be used to change colours.

P3B kick start our art topic

This term in P3 we will be developing our knowledge of the seven elements of art: colour, line, tone, shape, pattern, texture and form. We began this week by looking at colour (primary and secondary) and exploring different hues. Over the coming weeks we are going develop our skills and get creative! Watch this space to see how we get on.
