Easter Fun!
Some creative and engaging ideas for you to try out over the Easter break!

ABL FUN IN P.3 SEPTEMBER 2019 !!!!!!

What a wonderful time P3 had at Castle Espie.

We made 3D bugs!!!

Mrs Haggan came to visit P.3 to teach us some very important lessons!!!!!!!

We learned all about checking airway, calling for help, checking for dangers and what to do if a person is conscious or unconscious......

We had great fun making 'junk bugs' and wearing our 'bug boppers' during Book Week this year!!!!!

Some winning pupils in P.3!!!!

Today P.3. had great fun building homes for the little pigs !!!!!

P.E Ball Skills.......

We have been learning all about Capacity in P.3. 

We learned that capacity is the amount of fluid that can be in a container. It is a word we use when we measure liquids. We investigated the capacity of liquid in lots of different sized and shaped containers.

We used our tens and units to help us add two '2 digit' numbers. We must remember to add the units first and then the tens!!

We were so tired after PE!! We warmed up by playing 'Clumps' . We then had to control a ball with a bat moving it around cones using forehand and backhand passes. We had to keep our eyes on the ball while being careful not to bump into each other!! We cooled down by counting how many giant strides it took us to get across the hall. We then had to walk back using the same number of strides!!

Working together to set out money amounts.

Another day of Science at DPS !!!!



W5 visited today to teach us all about 'Newton's First law of Motion' and Gravity and lots lots more!!!! It was brilliant!!!!!!!

Observing Germs Through UV Light.......................and learning how a Cyclone works !!!!!!!

Science Week Investigations........

 Today in P.3 we have been learning all about germs!! We put some special glow gel on our hands and then observed the areas of our hands that glowed under UV light in a special dark box. We could see the areas of our hands that had the most germs! We then learned a special song 'If you're healthy and you know it wash you hands' to remind us how long (20 seconds) we should wash our hands for with soap and water.

When we tested again after washing our hands there were much less germs!

Happy Pancake Tuesday!!!

P3 really enjoyed their visit from PSNI-we learnt about how to stay SMART and loved being in the back of the Police van!

Colin the Firefighter came in and talked to the Year 3 classes about his job and how they can avoid fires in their homes.

The last of this set of ABL activities. Everyone has had good fun !
