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.
