Primary 3

Hello and welcome to Primary 3!!  In Team P3 we have Miss Mercer (Class Teacher) and 3 additional adults – Mrs King, Miss McAllister and Miss Whiteside.


We have an exciting year planned and cannot wait to get started.  This year our focus is taking our learning outside to experience ‘real life learning’ in all aspects of our curriculum.  In Primary 3 we like to do as much ‘hands on learning’ as possible and at every opportunity! Learning can and is FUN!


We have started Term 1a looking at the topic of ‘Space,’ we have learnt some interesting facts so far.  For example, did you know the sun is in fact a star?  Before half term our topic will be Autumn where we will look for signs of seasonal change.  In Term 1b our topics are Healthy Me and Christmas.


Term 2 topics include Winter Animals, Transport and Harland and Wolff.


Term 3 topics are Under the Sea and The Circus.
