Christmas in P3M

As we get closer to Christmas, the excitement in P3 is rising!! I thought it would be easier to put some information on here for the rest of term.

Christmas Show

We have been busy singing our Christmas songs for the show and will be taking part, with the other P1’s and P2’s in our production of ‘Children of the World.’ Some children have got speaking parts and these will go home today. For our show outfits we will all need ‘party clothes’ This can be anything that your child would wear to a party and we will have tinsel etc. in class. Can all clothes for the show be taken into school by Friday the 1st of December in a named bag. The show will be on Monday the 11th of December at 9.30am and 2pm. A note will go home about tickets on Monday the 27th of December.

Monday 4th of December – Panto at school

Friday 8th of December – P1-3 dress rehearsal

Wednesday 13th of December – Whole school to HMT panto

Monday 18th of December – P3 Christmas party

Friday 22nd of December – Holidays!!

Welcome back

Good morning, I hope that you all had a fantastic October holiday. Here is some information for the next few weeks..

Individual school photos will be taken on Tuesday the 7th of November in the morning. All children will be getting their photo taken and information will be sent home on the day.

Some of you may have heard the children talking about Baby Chloe this week. Chloe is a 16 week old baby who will be coming into our class with her mum every 3 weeks. This is part of a program our class have been asked to do called ‘Roots of Empathy.’ Chloe and her mum will be with us until July next year and over the next 8 months she will be our mini teacher. We will observe and interact with Chloe as she grows and she will help us develop empathy, an understanding of growth and the similarities and differences that there are between people. We are really excited to meet Chloe next week and look forward to sharing our learning and all of our photos with you.

Parents evening appointment slips were sent home yesterday with dates and times.

Many Thanks
Miss MacAulay

It’s hard to believe that there are only 3 weeks left of P2 for the boys and girls before they move up to P3 after the holidays. We have a really busy few weeks ahead so I thought it might be best to pop the dates up here:

Friday 16.6.17
New teacher letter for P3 going home

Monday 19.6.17
Moving up afternoon (an opportunity for the children to spend some time in their new classroom)

Tuesday 20.6.17
Trip to Crathes castle – all children will need with them a packed lunch, school jumpers/cardigans, a snack and a jacket. School trousers do not have to be worn. If the weather is good then please provide your child with suncream. I am looking for a parent helper for this trip, if you are able to help then please get in touch.

Friday 23.6.17
Whole school sharing assembly

Monday the 26.6.17

Miss MacAulay

As part of our homework this week, we were asked to do our reading in a different place. There were so many different places that the boys and girls chose. Other than the photos shown, Sophie-Jane read her book outside, Constance read hers in the garden and Alicja read her book upside down.



Dinosaur Fossils

It was really tricky to choose our Star Writers this morning. Next Wednesday we are going to be making dinosaur fossils and had to write instructions on how to make them. We were looking for neat writing and accurate instructions so that our fossils turn out perfect. Constance, Martyna and Sophie-Jane were chosen as our star writers for this job!! Well done girls. 

Swimming and Football

On Thursday the 25th of May we will be going to the football festival at St Machar academy. Can the children please come to school on this day wearing tracksuit bottoms and trainers (no football boots) School jumpers must be worn as there will be other schools there. As it may still be quite cold, could all of the boys and girls also bring a jacket. We will be bringing our snacks with us on the day.

We are also very lucky to be going swimming again on Tuesday the 30th of May. Could all children bring their swimming costume/trunks and a towel on this date.

If you have any questions then please let me know!

Miss MacAulay
