Come to school on Tuesdays and Thursdays wearing your PE kit please.
Welcome to Primary Four
Welcome to Primary Four 2022-23! On Mondays and Tuesdays Mrs Crangle is our teacher and on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays our teacher is Mrs Curragh.
We are very busy learning new things, exploring, asking questions, solving problems and having fun. We start each morning by using our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) tubs. This helps wake up our brains and our bodies for a great day of learning.
In Numeracy we are learning how to read, write, add and subtract numbers up to 1,000, learn our times tables, use the clock to tell the time, name and describe shapes and understand different graphs and tables. We love solving problems and practise our skills by using Mathletics online.
We are learning how to write for different reasons and audiences in Literacy. We love reading and writing stories, poems, facts, instructions, reports and letters. You will often find a P4 in the AR library searching for a new book and talking about their favourite types of books and authors. Talking and listening are important skills in Primary 4.
The World Around Us topics include water, water everywhere, 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. Science experiments are a highlight of our topic work!
Our PE sessions focus on teaching skills and having fun while getting lots of exercise. This year we will develop our football skills, control and explore body movements through gymnastics and dance and try out lots of athletics activities. In term 3 we even go swimming!
Learning to speak and understand some French words and phrases is great fun! We learn to count to 20, use colours and basic greetings.
Our AR library is bursting with books! Let's try to read for a few minutes every day. Each child has completed a STAR reading test which gives them an appropriate book level range. Targets have been set for the first half of term 1.
