We did ICT. We didn’t ask the teacher for help. We learnt to type and how to get on to Google. We clicked on the icon and it took us to Google. We typed in ‘invented Lego’ and we learnt about it. (EH)
We were talking about respect in class. If someone was having trouble with their work you can help them. We looked at it on the white board and we worked together in class and we learned that respect is good. (VG)
We showed very respectful behaviour when we had a 2 minute silence for Remembrance Day and made a wreath altogether to lay on the memorial.
We were adding the balls and found the number that was the double of that number and saw the pattern and we did do it because it was number work outside with Martin. (OM)
The forces are push, pull, squeeze, squash, stretch and twist. We learned if you push an object hard it will go further. If you push it soft it will go shorter. We learned what motion is. We pushed objects. We figured out what order it went. (ES)
We learned to keep the beat in music. We clapped on our knees and hands to the music and table too. We learned how fast and slow the music was so now we know how to keep the beat. (SW)
Lots more December information to come!

P4 have been learning about the depth of the ocean as part of our Great Barrier Reef project. We have been learning about the different layers of the ocean and some of the amazing creatures that live there. We created the ocean layers in a jar – see Google classroom if you want to try this at home – it can be a bit messy!
We have also been learning about how fish defend themselves against their predators. Fish have a variety of ways to fool their enemies, such as black eye, camouflage, moving in schools and poisonous stingers! We created our own beautiful fish to add to our growing barrier reef.
P4 have been learning about sea turtles this week for our project on the Great Barrier Reef. We found out lots of amazing information about these beautiful creatures, we have been learning how to draw turtles and mixing paint to create the right colours for them. They will be the first creatures on our reef display.
P4 have been busy over the last few weeks working on their writing skills. We have used the short film Blue Umbrella as inspiration for our writing. We have created our own version of the story and each day we add sentences from our work to our sentence stacking wall so we will have a class version too. We have been learning to write action sentences, feeling sentences and sound sentences and we have developed our writing techniques by using similes, onomatopoeia and alliteration. One more writing session to go to finish our fabulous story – we are so proud of our work!
Initially our top priority is happy and settled children – and the children have done themselves proud returning to school with really positive attitudes and ready to learn after being away for so long.
This year our school improvement plan has a strong focus on Literacy as a key area we wish to review and improve. There are also other areas of school development that we have carried on from last year.
