P4 walking with water

P4 have been learning about the many people in the world who do not have access to clean water.  We have been looking at how these people have to collect their water from streams, ponds and rivers.    We decided to try carrying water ourselves to find out how difficult it is.  We marked out a path 10 metres long and tried to carry one or two buckets of water over that distance.  We all found it very difficult and it is has really made us appreciate the luxury of having clean water on tap whenever we need it.

P4 making puddles!!

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.

Dramatics in P4

P4 have been attending drama every Thursday afternoon this term and they have been working really hard learning the conventions of drama.  We have used drama to explore our topic the Romans and have had great fun doing so.  We will be continuning drama after the October break.

Phones R Us

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

We will get a class set of these for the whole school to use.

Romans invade East Linton!!

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!!!!


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.
