P3/4 woodland walk tomorrow (Monday)

Reminder :

P3/4 will be completing activities to work towards the Woodland Trust’s Platinum Award in Craigmonie Woods.  Our final project will be creating a woodland trail to teach the school and wider community about the animals and plants that live in the woods.

On Monday 23rd’s visit we will be focusing on identifying plant and tree species.  Pupils will need suitable footwear, a waterproof jacket, long trousers & a long sleeved top.  Pupils could take their own gardening gloves if they have some.  Other requirements will be weather dependent ~ suncream, hat, midge repellent.

Busy, busy week for P3/4!

This week flew by! P3/4 had a busy week starting their work on our Woodland Trust Platinum Award. Pupils completed independent research on woodland animals including facts about their appearance, homes, what they eat. They then created beautiful woodland art using natural materials. We will focus on leaves and trees and plants on our woodland walk on Monday..

We have all been working hard on written subtraction with 2, 3 or 4 digit numbers and will keep practising this next week. We have also been learning our ‘wh’ question words for spelling what, where, when, why, which and who or other tricky common words.

May Moments!

We did a great Springwatch this afternoon and observed over 20 signs of spring from our playground. How many can you spot? We learnt about how bees and other insects love dandelion flowers for nectar & pollen!

We then improved our javelin technique in Athletics after working very hard in Daily Mile.

We have been working hard to recall our subtraction facts quickly and looked at the links between facts. e.g. 10-7=3 so 20-7= 80-7= 240-7=

We revised using subtraction jumps and empty number lines to solve word problems. Next week we will revise written subtraction.

Enjoy your day off tomorrow and we will see you all on Friday!
