Primary 3 - Mrs. Andrews and Mrs. Best

Welcome to Primary 3

African Projects

This is Charlotte's lamb. Robert the lamb is 3 weeks old and loves to drink milk out of a bottle. P3 children enjoyed patting him.

We dressed up to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday. We had a Royal Quiz, an outdoor lunch and lots of fun!

This week we have been learning about Pumpkins. Do you like our Pumpkin Faces?

We studied the Lifecycle of a Pumpkin

We guessed the height of our pumpkins. Then we measured them using cubes.

Autumn in P3.

Primary 3 work on their Bear Topic.


The Posh Bear's Brunch


We created posh clothes for our bears to wear.



After designing menus, making shopping lists and sending Mrs Andrews to Tesco, it was time to get ready for the Brunch. First we had to make sure our hands were clean.



We learnt to spread butter by using the side of the knife.




Ham was a popular filling!


     was jam!




Now for the tricky bit - cutting the sandwich into quarters (lots of maths here).




The rain and the wasps stayed away. We brought our sandwiches outside and enjoyed them. Mrs Andrews made us

eat our crusts!



Bear songs with Mrs Andrews.




One of the children brought some honey for us to sample. Bears love honey!





We made little bears from moulding material with Mrs Best. We learnt how the heat of our hands helped change the shape of the moulding material (science).




Then we created a den for our bear. We had to think about what it would need...

...water?           ...somewhere to play?          ...somewhere to sleep?

We raided our gardens!

Here are some of the finished dens.

Can you spot the bear?


Bear Maths

We put the bears in order of their heights


We've loved learning all about bears!
