Primary 3A

Well P3A, we’ve made it to the final week of home learning! 
 
It has been a very strange year but a huge well done to everyone who has kept on working hard and sending me photos and messages. I know it has been strange not coming to school and doing your work at home but I hope you have enjoyed spending time with your families and sharing your learning with them. 
 
I have posted your home learning grids below. They are a little bit different since it is the last week of term, we hope you enjoy them. Mrs Armour has included a scavenger hunt, also posted below. Look out for additional tasks from Mrs Scott and your new P4 teacher too – these will be posted on the Facebook page and Twitter. 
 
Enjoy your final week of P3. Best Wishes,
Miss Foster

Hello P3, 
 
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed sports day last week. Thank you so much to everyone who sent in their photos and scores to me, I loved seeing them all and it looked like you had great fun competing. There is still time to send in scores/photos if you have not done so yet – admin@eastcraigs.edin.sch.uk. Mr Cheung has been busy with his calculator counting up all the points and we will find out the winning house this week. I have heard it is very close!!
 
This week is ‘World of Work’ week. Keep an eye out for some special videos being posted on Twitter and we even have a special video all about being a farmer below. I have posted the home learning grids for this week below with some links to thinking about the future and careers. As always, please send me any photos, questions or suggestions. 
 
I hope you all have a wonderful week. Before you check out the learning grids, please read the special message below, from us all at EC.

P2, 3 & 4,

We wanted to talk to you about what is happening in America and the world just now. This is not the first time racism has been on the news. If you are upset about what you hear and see that’s ok, we all need to feel safe. Please watch the PowerPoint below and speak to an adult about any questions you have. We all, adults as well, need to learn more and help others to learn more.

From All the Staff at East Craigs Primary

Hello P3A,
 
What a beautifully sunny weekend it has been. I hope you have all been outside enjoying the sunshine and are now ready for some more home learning this week.
 
Our topic continues to be farming. Unfortunately, we are not able to take you on a farm trip but I have found a farm near Jedburgh for us to take a virtual trip to! There are also some fun activities you can download from their website. Follow the link below to check it out:

Hello P3A, 
 
I hope you are all ready for another week of home learning! I have posted our grids below.
 
I am so impressed with everyone who has completed the ‘measure assessment’ on Sumdog: Frankie, Joe, Kuba, Millie, Niranjani, Rhys, Tom B, Blair, Chloe and Tom W. I have awarded you all 50 Sumdog coins. Congratulations! I will be looking out for more people I can send coins to this week so keep up the good work.
 
Remember there will be maths Twitter challenges posted on Tuesday & Thursday, and a health & well-being challenge posted on Wednesday. As always, there’s also Mr Cheung’s PE grid and Mrs Lewis’ science grid plus extra modern foreign languages and music challenges under the ‘General Home Learning’ tab on the website. Make sure you check them out too. 
 
Finally, I hope you all are managing well with you home learning and also getting outside for lots of fresh air and sunshine. If you have any questions, suggestions or want to show me your work, please do get in touch: admin@eastcraigs.edin.sch.uk

Hello P3A,
 
I hope you enjoyed your long weekend. I have posted the home learning grids below.
 
This week there is also an additional challenge grid for literacy – it includes a reading comprehension and some literacy tasks linked to the reading. This is an extra grid so please do not feel that you must do it or finish it all, it is optional. It is quite tricky so please do not worry if you find it too challenging, just stick to the normal literacy grid. 
 
There is also a science grid linked to the science box in the mixed grid we have made. 
 
We are coming to the end of our learning on ‘measure’ in the maths grid. Once you have finished the tasks, there is a Sumdog Measure assessment for you to try. I will maybe award some Sumdog coins to those who complete it too so try your best!
 
If you want to check out some helpful maths videos Mrs Archer has kindly made for P3, head on over to the P3B website. The videos match our grids. 
 
If you want to email me to ask any questions or share your learning, please do! Email address is admin@eastcraigs.edin.sch.uk
 
Enjoy your week of learning!

Dear P3 pupils and parents/ carers,

Everybody should read for at least 30 minutes per day, either independently or aloud with an adult. Please spend some time discussing the story too.  Reading time could be spread over two or three short bursts, if this is easier. 

Everybody should take part in at least 30 minutes of physical activity per day. Please see the separate PE grid on the main page for activities.

Literacy 

Please complete two tasks from the Literacy grid per day. These cover spelling words, grammar/ writing skills and reading.

Spelling words will be uploaded each Monday. Please remember to do a test with your child each week, and continue to practise any words which are not yet learned ‘off by heart’.

Maths

Please complete one Maths tasks from the grid per day. Your child can choose what level grid they want to work on or vary between 1, 2 or 3 star. Sumdog and Education City logins have been issued.
