Class topic –  INSIDE OUT : The Human Body

This term Primary 3 have been learing about the human body. We started of by looking at the human skeleton and identified some of the bones.

We made these super skeleton Art pictures using cotton buds and pastels. The children had so much fun!

The children have been learning about some of the organs in the body –  the brain, heart, lungs and the digestive system.  They have learned about why they are important and some of their functions.

We will now go on to look at the five senses – sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell.

Class Topic – The Woodlands

Term1 – Primary 3 have been learning about The Woodlands.

The children followed a set of step-by-step instructions to draw these fantastic owls for our classroom display. In ICT the children have been researching different types of Owls and they also had the opportunity to find and record facts about other woodland animals.










































The children have been learning about the needs of a tree and different tree types.    They have learned that deciduous trees shed their leaves in Autumn and evergreen trees stay green all year because they don’t shed their leaves.

Our Magical Tree Art display was created using black pens and cotton buds and colourful paints.

The children then moved on find out about woodland animal habitats and the names of their homes.  They made these wonderful animals masks  using the technique of collage.
