Our topic this term in P4 is water. We have been learning about the water cycle and decided to take our learning outside to see the water cycle in action. As it was a dry day we had to make our own puddles in the playground. The children worked in groups, they found suitable places to make their puddles and then we went back to see them after an hour to see what had happened to them. Where had our puddles gone? Ask your child to explain our experiment with puddles.
In our accelerated reader we have been working towards getting an average of 80% on our reading quizzes. We have been working towards the target for 5 weeks. We got 82.5% this week, our reward? A popcorn party!!

P4 are doing a mobile phone challenge. Would you help us please? It would make all the children happy. We would get activotes for our whiteboards. In exchange for the phones money also goes to the charity Childline. And you are recycling your phone. Remember you can bring your old phone to us and all the children get a sticker

After 6 weeks of research, planning, building, assessing, rebuilding and evaluating , our roman chariots are finally ready to be unveiled to the public!
Today was Roman Day in P4. The 4th legion arrived to school ready for battle. We spent the morning getting our armour and weapons ready to invade the rest of the school, claiming all the classes for The Roman Empire.
We tried Roman food at our morning feast and then we had a very special visitor. A Roman soldier named Claudius who fascinated us all with his amazing knowledge of the Roman Empire.
We ended the day with a playground battle between the Roman Army and the Iceni tribe led by Boudicca. What a great day!!!!
P4 have been learning about 3d shapes. We have learned names and properties of 3d shapes. We know all about corners, faces and edges. We can spot shapes in the environment too.
We are experimenting and exploring with different types of building toys and equipment. We will be starting to build roman chariots soon and may decide to use some of this equipment.
