Sophie liked watching the video of the jumping lemurs.  She also enjoys blowing up her space bubble when we do PE.

Mia said that when we were practising different ways to jump in the hall we were getting lots of good exercise.

Sonny also enjoyed jumping, especially when we were jumping in and out of a hoop.

Jamie likes playing at the water tray.  He has been finding different sounds on the toy crabs.

Orla has learned her sounds, but she still enjoys practising them.

Cody likes to play tag outside in the playground with his friends.

Darcy enjoyed making a toy in class.  Everyone made a thaumotrope which is a scientific toy with two pictures. When you spin the thaumotrope the two pictures seem to combine to make one picture.

What could be better?

Millie would like the teachers to read more stories to the class.

Mia thinks that we should keep practising our sounds.

P3a Learning Log 18th January 2018

This week We had a great week because Generation Science came and we did cool experiments to make a fizz.

This week in topic we learnt about cool places to go in Edinburgh and Scotland, like the castles and Ben Nevis.

In art we made tartans and we coloured Scotty dogs and thistles.

In literacy we learnt words ending in -er, like longer and smoother.

This week in maths we learnt about units of time and we did a worksheet. We learnt how many days are in a year and a leap year. There are 365 days in a year and 366 in a leap year.

We need to keep working on our spelling.

Science in p4B

We were really lucky to have snow this morning at HPPS. We took this opportunity to look at a science experiment. The children brought in a snow ball and wanted to find out the answer ‘how quickly does snow melt?’. We enjoyed making predictions and recorded the process. Have a look at our findings…




*spoiler alert, it took 2 hours 55 minutes to fully melt.
