P4B’s Last Two Weeks of Learning

In the last two weeks P4B have been busy at  work

We have been learning about Mary Queen of Scots early life and why she moved to France to live. We pretended to be Mary Queen of Scots and wrote a diary entry. We also practised our times tables.

This week we developed learning how to measure liquids by making potions. We worked on developing our typing skills by trying to use the right fingers to accurately and quickly type. In P.E, we continued to develop our basketball dribbling skills. We learn’t that the Pope lived in the Vatican City and is in charge of the Catholic church.

We would love you to come along to see a flavour of our current Literacy work on Tuesday at 2.45pm. Unfortunately, we can only invite one adult per child to the classroom to accommodate space limitations.

Just  a wee reminder that Our P.E. day this term is on a Friday, can we please ensure that everyone has P.E. kits and indoors shoes. Some of us have forgotten to bring them back after the Christmas holidays.

P4B’s Week of Learning

I have been working really hard on my R.W.I sounds. I want to move up groups.

I liked learning about Space and making my Google slide. I can know insert a picture, I tried to insert a video. I can change the size of font and the colour of the font.

I loved going to Museum and looking at the meteors, I would like to go back.

I liked practising my numeracy strategies.

I enjoyed learning about making a fire responsibly and which one to make when making something to eat. We made melted marshmallows they were yum.

My best bit was measuring all the ingredients to make my Christmas decoration.

 

On Tuesday will be P4’s , P3/4’s and P3’s Christmas Party after lunch. Can pupils please come in their School Uniform and their party clothes in a bag and they will have time to get changed after lunch. We wouldn’t want anyone to slip at break or lunch and get wet/dirty.  Thank you.

P4B’s Week of Learning.

We really enjoyed presenting our Viking assembly
We have started our new topic space, and zoomed into something strange.
We have began to look at similes. A simile is when we compare an object to another thing.
We have started to learn how to play tennis in P.E. We have loved Tennis.
We have began to do mental maths in our head.

We would love you to come along to see a flavour of our current ICT and Digital Literacy work on Friday the 22nd of November at 11:45 am. Unfortunately, we can only invite one adult per child to the classroom to accommodate space limitations.

UPCOMING NEXT WEEK.

Tuesday can P4B come in their sports clothes for the visit of our athlete.
Also
Friday is Children in Need, pupils can dress down for a donation to Children in Need.

P4B’s Week of Learning

This week we have been learning about our growth mindset and fixed mindset, and how to use this with problem solving.

We used our Viking knowledge this week and created our own Viking long boats, mine is called Dragons Breath . Viking’s long boats have oars, sails and a dragon face at the front and a tail at the back .  Shields were on the outside of the boat to protect them from attack. We learnt that they could lift the boats out of the river and carry them on land.
In the mornings we were doing spellings,  we cut out letters from a newspaper and put them into  are spelling jotters.
Photos  of our boats are available on Twitter
