Welcome to our Primary Three class page. We have Miss McKenna as our teacher this year and our two fabulous classroom assistants are Mrs McConvey and Mrs Morrison.

Have a look around and see all of the fantastic work we have been doing so far this year. We are exploring topics such as Food, Dinosaurs, Houses and Homes, Celebrations and Forces and Magnets and we thoroughly enjoy many outdoor learning lessons through these topics.

We have been working hard in the area of Numeracy this term and have loved using Numicon during our number work. We are able to count forward: and backwards in 2s,5s and 10s and are confident using different operations within the 100 array. We are quite competitive when it comes to our Mathletics points and aim to get at least 1000 points a week. We have been improving our problem solving abilities by using RUCSAC and we love the challenge of  a maths investigation. We are learning to identify 2D and 3D shapes within our environment and are also learning to represent data on a range of charts and tables.


In Literacy this year we are developing our writing skills in a range of genres such as recount, persuasive, report, procedural and narrative writing. We are also continuing the use of the Jolly Phonics programme to improve our phonics skills too. We are enjoying reading ‘The Twits’ as a class novel currently and love our daily guided and shared reading sessions.

One of our favourite times of the week is when Graham coaches us for Actisport on Thursday. We do lots of games, dances and learn lots of new skills. We also love class Music sessions with Miss McKenna where we develop our listening skills as well as our performance skills. Luckily we are focusing on ‘Music and Sound’ this year in particular in ICT so we will be looking at creating and recording some of our fabulous compositions.

Enjoy this snapshot of our class as we learn and grow together in St Brigid’s this year!
