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! 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: UNDERGROUND! We have been learning about the trains that travel underground and the animals that live underground. We have been creating our own underground worlds in art, creating and presenting PowerPoint on an underground animal of our choice and we have been outside looking for mini-beasts. We have really enjoyed this topic and now have a greater understanding of the many things that may be happening below our feet!
