P4 started the new year with a thinking skills task this morning and created some very impressive creatures. The task was to design a new animal or combine two existing animals to make one new creature. They drew some excellent pictures of their new creations and provided lots of details about them.
We have been busy in our final week of 2019 in P4. We made some lovely Christmas crafts, 1 paper plate made a wreath and a curly Santa, we decorated biscuits so they looked like melting snowmen, we used chalk pastels to create some unusual but beautiful reindeers and we enjoyed a snowman shake with P5. Think we are ready for our holidays!
P4 have been busy making their fabulous creations for the Christmas fair tomorrow. On sale will be wooden gingerbread figures for £1.00 each and wooden Olaf figures for 50p. The fair is open to all from 9.30 till 10.30am, hope to see you there.
We have been busy in P4 we have been learning about the techniques of persuasive writing. We used our new powers of persuasion in a class debate, we have also been looking at adverts and created some of our own and we have been writing persuasive letters – these will be coming home shortly so look out for them.
We have also been writing imaginative stories and have made them into books which we are going to share with the younger children in school. We have spent time working on our vocab skills by learning how to use a thesaurus and we then made our own to have in our trays whenever we might need them to up level our writing.
After a exciting return to school in August, the children have been continuing to work hard to develop their learning powers. Here are some of our Learning Heroes so far this year. Please now keep up to date weekly on our school Twitter page @EastLintonPS! :0)
P4 got outdoors today to take a look at the outdoor classroom we worked so hard on in P3. Things are looking good if a little boggy with all the heavy rain this week. We are needing to carry out some maintenance, remove dead plants, prune, weed, clean the pond, pick up the rubbish and top up the bug hotel. We think we may have a hedgehog living in the hedgehog house, fingers crossed! Lots to be done but we are keen to get out and maintain and improve this area.
