Miss Irvine


    We had a brilliant time during our school trip to the Ulster Museum. We had to use the clues to work out the season before we explored lots of interesting creatures.

    ⭐️ Well-being week ⭐️

    Hoppy Easter from P3 🐰We made Easter head pieces and showed them off during our Easter parade.

    We have been learning our times tables. We used counters, cubes and Numicon to help us with our 5 times tables.

    We have had great fun in Maths learning about capacity. We estimated how many cupfuls different containers would hold before checking to see if our estimates were correct.

    Pancake Tuesday! We worked together to weigh the ingredients and mix the batter before Miss Irvine cooked our pancakes. Once we made these, we chose our favourite toppings. They were delicious! Afterwards, we sequenced steps on how to make pancakes.

    We have been learning about symmetry. We challenged our partners to make our towers symmetrical. We painted butterflies to show how the patterns are the same on both sides. 🦋

    ❤️ Wearing red for Valentine’s Day ❤️

    To practise our instructional writing, we made delicious pizzas. We thought carefully about each step and the bossy verbs we could use. We took pictures on the iPads and used them to help us write our instructions.

    Celebrating Chinese New Year

    🎄 Merry Christmas from P3 🎄 We have enjoyed making Winter artwork and visiting the light festival in Botanic Gardens.

    We are problem solvers!

    Making Music using ICT

    For anti-bullying week, we decorated our classroom door with a kind word. Our word was BRAVE!

    🎃 Having a spooktacular time in P3 🎃

    We made barn owls like Plop in our class story, ‘The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark’. Plop loved to watch the fireworks.
