Our Cultures 

On Friday we are welcoming parents and carers into our school to see for yourselves what we have been learning this term. We hope you can make it! The children will also be creating a booklet to share at home. 

Writing 

We will be learning to use onomatopoeia words e.g. “whizz” and “bang”. We will be using this language in our writing about the fireworks seen by Plop the Barn Owl (continuing from last week). 

Maths and Numeracy 

In numeracy this week, we are learning strategies to help us with multiplication including repeated addition (5 x 3 = 5 + 5 +5) and using arrays. We will also be continuing to learn about using different coins to make totals. 

Health and Wellbeing 

As part of Children’s Mental Health Week we will be learning about making connections and internet safety.

Our Cultures 

We are hoping to gather a range of recipes from around the world. We hope to collate these into a recipe book. We would love it if you could share some recipes from home – a handout will be coming home this week and also below.

Writing 

This week we are continuing to write about Plop the Barn Owl – inspired by the story ‘The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark’. We will be using adverbs to describe how Plop is acting e.g. nervously, hesitantly. 

Maths and Numeracy 

In numeracy this week, we are learning about creating equal groups and using arrays. Here is a short video explaining arrays video.  

In our money topic we will be learning about using the correct coins to make totals. Perhaps if you are shopping you can talk about what coins you would need for an item or even pay in cash!

St John the Evangelist feast Day Mass

Thank you to P3 for leading the school so beautifully in the Mass to celebrate our Patron Saint. They did exceptionally well with the readings, especially with having such limited practise time. Fr Jock was impressed of the knowledge of the children during his homily!

P6 also took part in the initiation ceremony for the Pope Francis Faith Award – this is offered to pupils in P6&7. Throughout the two year award, pupils learn about the Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Spirit and how they can use these gifts in daily life. The award aims to connect all aspects of our parish community: school, parish and home. We wish P6 every success in their Pope Francis Faith Award work.

St. John’s RC Primary P3 Home Learning Grid for Friday 16th December 2022 

Good morning to all of the children in P3 and their families! We are very sorry that we won’t see all of your smiling faces today. We know that you will feel very sad that we are missing our party today. We will be sure to have a party before the Christmas holidays (and watch a film too to make up for missing our pj and film afternoon) 

Here are some activities for you to explore today while you are at home. We hope that you enjoy them! 

Love from Mrs Williamson, Mrs Birdsell and Mrs Agate
