Welcome to P4!
This term our topic is 'Mini-beasts', providing you with lots of opportunities to get into your garden and explore what is hiding underneath rocks or in the soil. You have all been working incredibly hard so far and we look forward to seeing lots more home learning.
Primary Four Teachers
Learning at Home Information
In order to help you continue your child's learning journey at home, we aim to provide you with information here on our P4 page. For those parents who have signed up to the SeeSaw app, we will keep in contact with the children through it.
Welcome to P4
P4 is the final year of Key Stage 1 in which we love to have fun in our learning! Our activities and trips bring our topics to life and there are also lots of after-school activities for us to enjoy with our friends. We can become members of the school ECO committee and be involved in different events to help care for and improve our school environment too.
Keep checking this page throughout the school year to keep up to date with P4 school life.
Our P.4 children will be learning lots of fascinating information about many of our holiday destinations and other countries of interest as part of our Going Places topic. Soon, we will find out about other languages that are spoken and we will learn how to say “Hello” in different languages. We will even have the opportunity to celebrate our learning through song and dance!
Our class novel is Horrid Henry’s Holiday, in which we will all discover what happened during Henry’s disastrous camping trip. (Luckily, everything turned out well in the end...) When we are fully familiar with the features of recount writing, we will have the chance to compose our own recounts and share our stories with our friends.
‘Making connections’ will be the focus of our guided reading lessons. Our mums and dads can help us a little more when we talk about all that goes on in our Easy Reads and library books together.
We will be revising our number facts and processes within 100 in maths lessons. Playing games with our friends is a great way to help us remember all of those tricky facts and we look forward to carrying out interesting investigations too. We will be gathering different forms of data within our classroom and discussing how best they can be presented later in the term.
In Activity Based Learning we will be introduced to ways in which “fair” tests can be carried out, as well as creating and writing our own picture postcards and exploring numbers within 100.
Our longer school days give us the chance to enjoy P.4 Games and the opportunity to move class and meet new teachers. We can even stay until 4 o’clock and take part in after-school activities!
