Welcome to Primary Four

Welcome to Primary 4!  We are very busy learning new things, exploring, asking questions, solving problems and having fun.

 

In Numeracy we are learning how to use big numbers up to 1,000, tell the time and use different graphs and tables! We are learning how to use new punctuation marks, improve our grammar, and write for lots of different reasons and audiences in Literacy. We love reading stories, poems, facts and anything else we can find!

The World Around Us topics include pirates, the Post Office, World War II, underground and our five senses. We love learning about our local area and wider world, about our past and how things have changed. Our PE sessions focus on teaching skills and having fun while getting lots of exercise. PDMU lessons are a great chance to talk about our feelings, friendships and how to stay safe at school and at home. RE activities help us to think about decisions we make and how to treat each other based on important stories and people from the Bible and Christian church.

During P4 we have lots of opportunities to be creative during music, drama and art activities. We are encouraged to use our imagination and try new ideas even if the end result doesn’t quite turn out like we planned!

 

This term we have been making pirate ships from clay, writing our own stories about pirates and creating pirate portraits using oil pastels! We have been enjoying our daily mile and Scottish dancing each week.
