P3A

daily miledaily mile 3

We have had a very busy week in P3A!

Ahead of beginning The Daily Mile next week we wanted to find out exactly how far is a mile? We discovered that a mile would be roughly 20 laps of the playground!! We think this will be quite a challenge but we are going to give it a good go.

We are going to use our knowledge of data handling to record how many laps we do and see if we can improve each day. We’re aiming to get a ‘bigger’ bar each day!

Gangsta Granny by David Walliams is our class novel at the moment and we are finding it very funny.

We are developing our skills to infer meaning from text alongside developing our ability to predict.

Ask us about it at home to see if we can summarise what has happened so far!

Primary 3A’s Children in Need Day!

Today was Children in Need day at King’s Park, and Primary 3a did a great job raising money to support this charity. We were dressed very oddly for the day, and even took a photo with our oddest faces on!
