P4 – Miss Hart

The sun shone for P4 visiting Dirleton Castle on 14 May. P4 were able to find evidence of life in the past and did a great job learning more about life in and around a castle long ago. Andrew our guide did a marvellous job of bringing history to life!

On Thursday 28 March, Jonathan Charles a film maker with Creative Scotland, joined us in class to help us plan our documentary film about Bubbles Beat Balloons, our school campaign.
We are very excited about being film makers. When we have shot, edited and made our film, we hope to share it with you. Be prepared for a premiere screening before the end of the summer term. Good luck P4! Another exciting opportunity for you to develop lots of new skills.

As we approach the end of Term 2 of P4 we would like to share some exciting moments from our learning so far.

The Eat Well, Cook Well Project

Community nutritionist, Ruth Davie and her team have worked with us to create some tasty meals which we have loved sharing with our classmates. We made a tasty burger and a spicy noodle dish. P4 learned about the importance of good hygiene as well as the safety involved when cooking.

The First Minister Finds Out About Our Campaign

Thursday 7 March was a very exciting day for Longniddry Primary when First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon found out more about our Bubbles Beat Balloons campaign. Everyone was keen to learn what she had said and what we learned on our visit to the Parliament.

Active Numeracy
P4 have been applying their learning to many different games and problem solving activities. Games help us learn the strategies of addition and subtraction. Has anyone been using cards and dice at home to make some simple number games? Some of us created our own addition lotto. We have enjoyed using these new games in class to keep our skills fresh!

Learning About Our Planet and Strengthening Our Campaign

As part of our science and social studies learning, we have continued to find out more about the dangers to our wildlife and sea life caused by plastic pollution. In Term 1 Tara from Marine Conservation (Scotland) joined us and agreed to back our campaign, Bubbles Beat Balloons. In Term 2, Mal from The Scottish Seabird Centre entertained and educated us with a fascinating and fun workshop in the assembly hall. Thanks Mal. Look out for our campaign certificate the next time you visit the Scottish Seabird Centre. They were proud to sign our pledge!

P4 use drama to tell stories. In Term 1 we had the fun of enjoying a taster drama workshop. Later we worked with East Lothian drama specialist, Sheonagh Davidson on a story called Giant. This story had a message for us about why caring for our environment matters. We co-operated with each other to bring the story to life using mime, movement and language. Well done P4 for sharing your confident drama skills. In class we used our ideas to inspire our writing.

Open Morning Term 1
We enjoyed taking our friends and family on a learning walk of our work from our WWI topic. Our stall for guessing the birthday of Flanders Bear was very popular. We did a great job to help raise funds for Poppy Scotland as part of the Poppy 1918 challenge. The Big Band did a fantastic job of entertaining us with their songs, including World of Peace. Our singing of WWI songs was amazing! Well done everyone and a huge thank you for joining us on this special morning.

Hopefully P4 have been careful at home as they think more about the energy we use from the national grid. The Generation Science team joined us to explain through story and drama, how energy is used and where it comes from. We learned a little more about renewable and non-renewable forms of energy and how important it is not to waste energy. Remember to switch those lights off when we no longer need them. Unplug the x-box now and again and don’t just leave your TV on standby. We are being very eco-friendly in our classroom too.

Can we sit in 2’s on last day of school and choose who we sit with…Dont make George and Hamish sit next to each other?! Sorry the questions are very random!!!!
    Love From Hannah !xxx!

  5. Hi Hannah
    Great to see you are looking forward to Sports! I know you have been trying so hard to get your fastest times. I just know you will earn lots of house points. I like you idea for the seats. Perhaps we could do that for the last week? We will see what the others think of the idea. 🙂

  6. I have really enjoyed are mini polar region topics on the animals there!
    It was a ton of fun researching an animal then making a PowerPoint or poster on that animal.

  7. I like that you are giving me a challenge in my maths. And I also enjoyed the rugby taster. It was fun to have a shot of one of my dad’s favourite sports!

  8. I am really enjoying our swimming session on Fridays. It is good to build up my strength in a different sport that I wouldn’t usually do. I am liking the coordinate grids to. Mini dot to dots really!

  9. I am going to be really sad when it’s the end of term! Because you have been a phenomenal teacher all year round! I will be over the moon if I get you next year. But if I don’t I won’t be to sad because after all it is good to have a change learn different strategies from different people!

  10. Christie your comments made me smile! You are using fantastic words and phrases! Did you need to use spell check for those amazing wow words? You were a star at rugby! Dad would have been proud to see you getting stuck in to the tag games and being so brave! Maybe you will be in the girls’ Scottish or Irish teams one day ? 😉

  11. Hi Miss Hart! I’m looking forward to sports day sadly it was moved to next week. 🙁 I showed my mum the video it made my mum smile. Also i’m looking forward to going to P5!!! and I hope i’m in P4/5 again!!! ***bye***

  12. Brilliant comments Dylan. Glad you’re loving maths. What are you enjoying best: symmetry, grid references or the recent directions work? You’ve done so well on all of them!! You are becoming such a confident mathematician! ???

  13. Hi miss hart! I have really enjoyed the p5 John Meir work as well as the mini polar region topic!! I like Hannah’s idea for the seats we should do that!! Oh and are you allowed the same teacher 3 years in a row?!?! If not I will really miss you !?

  14. Hi again! I just want to say I’m really really enjoying maths I used to hate it but now I love it!! And when will we find out our new teachers and classes?

    Love Ellie ??

  15. Hi Miss Hart!!! I wish that I could you as my teacher next year?

    At the start of p4/5 I thought maths was very boring? But when we started grid refrances In X tables I have started to really like it.

  16. Hi miss hart sorry forgot to put my name on it Hamish mcgregor!!!

    I don’t agree with Hannah’s idea that me and George can’t sit together???

    I’m looking forward to sports day.

    I am really ingoying the daily mile because us fit and healthy ☺️?

  17. Hamish don’t worry, I was agreeing to the idea of sitting in pairs (that’s all). Great to hear you are enjoying maths. There are so many different parts of maths not just number. You were brilliant at the grid references and directions. Must be all that outdoors camping and map work!! 😉

  18. Hi Ellie,
    You will find out about your next teachers later this week and will have meet the teacher on Thursday. I have not taught the same people for 3 years in a row so that would be a record for me but it would certainly be fun!! It is music to my ears that you are enjoying maths so much. It is a great subject once you learn to love the puzzling out part and learn no to be afraid of numbers. Remember they can only ever do 4 things!!! Do NOT be afraid. Spread the word…maths can be great fun!!! 🙂 🙂 😉

  19. Yeah maths is great fun!? I’m so excited for sports day and meet the teacher!❤️ I’m desperate to get you again!!!

    Ellie❤️?❤️??❤️?❤️?❤️?❤️?❤️?❤️
