Here we have the first piece of completed art from our P3 Andy Warhol project. This one is Naomi’s and she has done a beautiful job at selecting vibrant, contrasting colours in the style of the artist. Amazing work Naomi!
Today we were learning all about advertising and we are beginning to understand that adverts are aimed at different audiences. We watched some adverts and discussed why their images, language, text and music made them effective! We especially loved the infamous Cadburys eyebrow advert!
As part of our topic, we have been learning all about communication and sending messages. Part of this has involved thinking about how we communicate warning sounds in times of danger. Here are some pictures of us sorting sounds into ‘normal’ and ‘warning’ categories.
Today in P3 we enjoyed a teddy bear picnic and party for filling our class marble jar. We played traditional party games like musical statues and hide the keys and even ate some tasty treats together. Our marble jar is filling up again fast and we are all so excited to pick the next reward!
In P3 we have been learning about fractions and to show our understanding today we had a maths lesson with a twist- a class party where everything we ate or drank was split into halves and quarters! We had to problem solve with a partner to share packets of crisps equally, estimate when our cups were half full and find a way to split a pancake into quarters!

This morning in primary 3 we were shocked to find that we had been visited by a snorgh! The snorgh left behind some shells, a crumpled list of snorgh rules, a disgusting pot of green soup and a book for us to read. We read the story “the snorgh and the sailor,” and found a hidden letter asking us to help build the snorgh a boat so he could go on an adventure! Here are some pictures of us discovering the items and some diagrams of our boats.

We have been using the text to build our own versions of Miss Honey’s cottage. Once we are finished, our cottages will be judged; the winner will be the person who has best stuck to the clues from the text.
Here is how we are getting on so far!
