Hello from P3!
Literacy comes in many shapes and forms; this week we continued a story in the style of the author. It was a funny story so we had to use phrases that would make the reader smile! We had great fun sharing and assessing them! We have also been looking at the use of punctuation in a piece of text we know why writers use exclamation marks, speech marks and ellipsis… Our spelling patterns this week are: Ants ‘th’ – which is confusing as we often say ‘f’ as in ‘wif’ instead of ‘with’ so keep practising! Bees and Moths had ‘ough’ that made an ‘o’ sound as in bottom. We made spelling scribbles, practicing the pattern over and over, we think we’ve got the hang of it!
We are continuing our work with fractions as we are finding this tricky. We know that finding a half is the same as dividing by two, that finding a quarter is the same as dividing by four and so on. We are finding it tricky because some of us are not confident with our tables so please keep practising at home!
We have been very busy practising our assembly for our parents and carers. Our teacher thinks we have worked really hard on it and we all hope it is a success on Friday! We know all the show songs, now we need to learn them off by heart without the words, but we are doing so well that it shouldn’t be a problem. We also designed our own tartan with paint. We will make them into kilts by adding a sporran and a kilt pin!
Remember our assembly tomorrow!!
