Hi! This week in numeracy, some of us were counting in 10s, on and off the decuple. In a maths and PE lesson, we estimated and measured how far we could jump. The groups were all working really hard!

In the BIG Write, we were writing a story about a child who is kidnapped by goblins and then a knight or jester comes to rescue them.

We have been doing lots of singing practice for the show! We have added some actions to the songs.

Thank you for reading our class blog!

We had our assembly on Tuesday, it was about Robert Burns. We read out poems and facts about Robert Burns, performed a short play and did a quiz about words in Scots asking the audience to work out the words in Scots meant in English. We really enjoyed doing the assembly, thank you for coming out to see it!

In P.E. we have been practising balancing and racing to get fit and prepare for the athletics festival. In maths lessons we have been learning the two and three times tables, we have been working with higher numbers and how to divide numbers by halving and splitting, and sharing numbers. We can also divide by counting in two’s and three’s.

We have been learning about the fruits of the Holy Spirit: love, self-control, peace, kindness, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, patience and joy. We get the fruits of the Holy Spirit by using Gifts of the Holy Spirit, this makes us kinder, better children.

Thank you for reading our blog, hope you have nice weekend! Primary 4 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hello Rear Readers,

This week we have been working hard practising for our assembly on Tuesday and Burns Night on Wednesday. We have been writing facts about Robert Burns, did you know Robert Burns wrote over 600 songs and poems! and when he was a child he used to help his dad working on a farm, he moved to Edinburgh when he became famous. You will find out more on Tuesday!

We were painting using Pointillism in Art with a Scottish theme. We painted thistles, highland cows, and Saltires using cotton buds.

In writing we were writing factual reports about Living Things, Robert Burns or Confirmation. We were practising using generalising vocabulary such as all, many, lots, other and few. We were writing in paragraphs using sub-headings.

Hope you all have a nice weekend, have a guid Burns night and  see you on Tuesday (for oor assembly!)

Happy New Year! It’s good to back at school. Two weeks off felt like a month…

This week we have been learning about Robert Burns to get ready for our assembly. We have been learning some of his poems; “To a Mouse”, “Up in the Morning Early” and “My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose” for this one we have been doing some acting. We also did some reading comprehension, finding out facts about Robert Burns.

In art we made oil pastel drawings of highland cows, linking Scots to our topic about living things.

In maths we have been doing function machines to practise our addition and subtraction strategies. It is fun and there is always more than 1 way to work out an answer!

We met Mrs Esamel this week, she read Room on the Broom in Scots to us (better than Mr Campbell!) We are looking forward to working with Mrss Esamel.

Hope you have a good weekend! Primary 4

In maths we have started working with fractions – we have been splitting a whole into equal parts making halves, quarters, sixths,  eighths and thirds. We have also been practising working with times looking at quarter past and quarter to.

We got new reading books – The Lions have been reading “Building High” finding out all about scaffolding and how to put it together and how you make large structures. The Tigers have been learning about the inventor Thomas Edison – he invented the light bulb and phonograph!

In Drama with Miss Watt we did scavenger hunt looking for inventors and finding out who made what. The Wright made the first aeroplanes and Levi Strauss invented blue jeans.

We have made cards, posters and Christmas tree star decorations for the Christmas Fayre tomorrow. Hope to see you all there!

Happy Weekend! 🙂 Primary 4 x

This week we have been using laptops to research and find out facts about Scottish inventors, and answering questions about them. In our BIG write we wrote stories about inventions we had made up. In science we have doing experiments with magnets to see how many paper clips they could pick up. We designed robots in art with Mrs Johnson linking it with our topic and the artist Leonardo Da Vinci.

In Maths we have been learning about time, looking at different clocks and times, we made our own clocks to help us tell the time.  We have been thinking about the Act of Sorrow and practising our handwriting by writing it out.

We had our last lesson of swimming this week, it was fun and we got to play for the last part. We got to jump in the deep end and we all feel much more confident in the water. We would like to say thank you to Richard for helping us learn to swim and to Sheila, Mrs Fettes, Mrs Mercer and Mrs Pucko for taking along to the Loch Centre.

It was great having all the parents in for the open morning. We felt a bit shy and nervous at first but then it was fine and we really enjoyed it. We had a BIG writing station, a topic station, an art station and maths station. We really liked being able to share our learning with the parents and hope they enjoyed it.

Thank you all for coming today, have a great weekend!

We did desert island maths this week. We had choose which items we would take to survive if we were stuck on a desert island, worked out how much they would cost and how much change we would get.

The aliens are about to leave to go back to Varna, so we wrote factual reports for them about Tranent’s history and Prestongrange Museum to take with them.

We had fun playing drama games today with Miss Watt that made everyone laugh!
