Welcome to Primary Four

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 write for different reasons and audiences in Literacy. We love reading stories, poems, facts and anything else we can find! Talking and listening are important skills in Primary 4.  

 

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. We enjoy getting outside to run or walk the daily mile.  

 

 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 ICT time we explore different apps on the iPad and use websites and programmes on the computers in the ICT suite. Our favourites this year are Scratch Jr and Mathletics.  

 

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! Sometimes we learn best on our own but other times we like to have a partner or a group of people to help us learn. 

 

 

 PE is timetabled on Thursday! Please remember to wear suitable PE wear to school every Thursday. 

We have been enjoying our topic which is World War Two. We have been learning all about the countries and people involved in World War Two and have been creating Blitz artwork. We are going to be looking at the timeline of WW2 and learning more about life during the war.

We have really enjoyed being back to school. We have loved catching up with our friends and getting lots of time outside (we have even managed to find time to read together outside). We are looking forward to having lots of fun in the summer term.

 


We had great fun predicting and testing experiments during our science day! 


In Numeracy, we have been very busy learning about money and weight.
 

In Literacy, we have been writing stories and using the iPads to create digital books.
