Welcome to the Primary 3 Learning Area!

We hope that the page can be used to share some of the fantastic work completed by our very talented Primary 3 children.  

Below is a selection of literacy and numeracy learning intentions for this term. We hope that you will find them useful when supporting your child at home.

Let’s Get Together – At School

The children will gain an increased self-confidence at school and awareness of their school identity. Opportunities to explore the school grounds and be aware of its layout (know where different classrooms/ key places) are situated will be provided. They will begin to recognise changes in schools today (including their own school) and in the past; learn about some of the jobs of people who help us at school; find out more about local festivals celebrated such as Halloween and know about some basic road safety and personal safety skills when out and about.
