Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Primary 3 has enjoyed starting their new topic 'Let's Celebrate' We have talked about all the different ways we celebrate with our own families and will be looking at how other cultures celebrate including weddings and holidays.

We will explore how Chinese New Year is celebrates as well as Eid, Diwali and Hanukkah.


Primary 3's topic in the Autumn term are 'School's Cool' and 'Safe and Sound'.We learned about the materials our school is built from and how to identify them; we created our class charters and did some fantastic writing about our classes as well as demonstrating our super skills as amazing artists by sketching our school and painting our self portraits. It's been a busy few weeks!


  • About Victorian schools and the lives of the children there. We'll even get to have our own Victorian classroom.
  • We had a design and technology day on Friday 28th September
  • We interviewed our very own Mr Ball too - he knows everything about our school!


In 'Safe and Sound' we had a visit from the PSNI and learnt about how to stay safe in the dark. We experimented with the best materials to be seen at night. We investigated how animals use colour to stay safe.


We learned all about the different emergency services and really enjoyed the topic.


P3 written homework is sent home weekly. We send a little bit home for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evening and folders are returned on Thursday morning. Any questions, please get in touch.
