This week has flown by in Primary 4 with the pupils being as busy and enthusiastic as ever. We started our new topic of Mini-beasts this week and the energy for the topic is sky high! We have had so many stories of mini-beasts and the knowledge of different insects is huge. We started off with some amazing insect art with drawing, painting and building different insects. The creativity was stunning and the different styles on display were impressive. We have spent time designing bug hotels and with the stunning designs it’s safe to say there could be a lot of very well taken care of mini-beasts in the future!

In health we have looked at emergency situations and the pupils performed very effective dramas showing a situation and how it would be resolved. They were confident identifying which emergency service to use and how situations can be made better and they were all so encouraging of each other with fantastic positive feedback. We even had a superbly mimed stretcher on the go!

In maths we have been revising place value and reminding ourselves of how numbers are built. We have also been learning compass points and how we can find our way around using compasses, and how we can help each other move around too.

Reminders:

PE – Monday and Thursday.

Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather, which has been very hard to predict at the minute!

Homework

We will be handing out homework starting next week so please look out for this. If your child requires a hard copy of them homework that can be provided.

Homework will be on a 2 week basis. On the grid there are starred activities which should be completed within the 2 weeks and other optional activities as well.

We hope you all have a fantastic long weekend,

Thank you for all your hard work and support,

Miss Clark and Mr Woodward
