P3B, Maths – Addition

Primary 3B have been learning different strategies to help with addition.

We have used numicon and the part-part whole strategy. We are learning that different strategies suit different learners and finding the one that works best for us can be super helpful.

“This strategy makes adding so much quicker”, Albie O’Halloran

P3B, Symmetry 🔺🔹and French 🇫🇷

This week, P3B have been learning about symmetry in shapes. Check out the Autumn 🍂 pictures we have completed, using one line of symmetry. We also made symmetrical pictures using coloured shapes.

P3B have revisiting how to count in French. They have also been learning how to ask “How old are you?” in French and how to reply. Some of us are 6, some of us are 7!

P3B Literacy ✏️

Primary 3B have been focusing on the importance of using capital letters and full stops when writing sentences. Sometimes we forget to use them!

In groups, we played games to create sentences. The sentences had to have a capital letter at the start, end with a full stop and words in the correct order.

Our sentences were silly, but it was lots of fun! We finished the lesson with some textbook work – this is NEW for P3, but we are enjoying this focused learning, and feeling very grown up!

P3B, Ancient Egypt 🇪🇬

Primary 3B have begun their learning on Ancient Egypt 🇪🇬 We are very enthusiastic and keen to learn as much as we can.

We started our learning by using an atlas 🌎 to find out where Egypt is in the world and more about its location.

We worked in pairs to help each other and learned how to use the index and the contents.

After finding Egypt, we used compass points 🧭 and located the River Nile, the capital city Cairo, found out about the climate and other key features. We finished the lesson by labelling our own maps and we coloured in the flag of Egypt.

P3B – 2D Shape

Primary 3B have been learning about 2D shape, introducing new shapes like rhombus, pentagon, hexagon and octagon.

Last week we went on our shape hunt, this week we have been learning which shapes tesselate and which ones don’t.


The children have really enjoyed using the shapes to make tiling patterns! We hope you like them!
