Primary 3 have been learning all about measuring length over the last few weeks. They have been comparing lengths – longer, shorter, longest etc. They have also been busy inside and outside measuring different items using cm and m. They discovered that 100cm equals 1m and were very excited to find big things to measure in our playground using metre sticks.
Primary 3 have been working on soft c in our spelling this week. The rule is ‘When c comes just before i, y, or e it usually makes the s sound. It is called soft c.’ E.g. face, cycle, or city.
Your child will be coming home with homework on Friday (8th). There are spelling words using this rule. Please look for the homework jotter in your child’s bag.
Primary 3 discovered that their first topic this year will be the Ancient Egyptians. A mysterious box arrived in the classroom and when we investigated more closely, all the items in the box were about the Ancient Egyptians. We are all very excited about this topic and already have a list of questions that we hope to find the answers for when we research our topic.
