We have had a busy and varied week in P3A! Here we are all set for Sports Day…

On Monday we went to the Linlithgow Book Festival. We met an author called Colin Drysdale who has written a book called ‘Scotland’s Castles’. He told us some facts about castles and then we went outside the marquee to fire water balloons from a trebuchet!

In Numeracy this week we have been revising dividing by 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10. Some of us were also solving division problems and some of us were dividing with remainders. Next week we will finish division and complete our work with fractions.

In Literacy we have been learning to write the middle part of a story. We listened to ‘The Ice Robbery’ and we identified the problem and the solution in the story. We looked at our own story beginnings and reminded ourselves of our characters and setting. Afterwards, we created a problem for our characters and decided how it would be fixed and made notes on our middle part of our stories. On Thursday, we used our notes to continue our own stories. We had to ensure that we continued our stories in a way that made sense.

This week we explored what a healthy diet looks like. We looked at the importance of drinking water, exercise, sleep and keeping a happy and positive attitude. We also revised the main food groups on The Eatwell Guide. Afterwards we worked in groups to create PowerPoints on healthy living.

On Wednesday this week we had our Sports Day. In the morning we went round different potted sports activities such as bean bag throw, egg and spoon race, tennis, rugby ball passing, running, javelin throw, cheerleading and space hoppers.  In the afternoon we had different races. We really enjoyed it and it was lots of fun!

Thank you for reading our blog post. We hope that you have a lovely weekend.
