Here is what we have been learning in P4a this week. We would love to hear your feedback so please leave a comment on the post and we can read it when we come to school!
‘We have been writing about a haunted house we were using adjectives to help us describe the house’ Finlay
‘We learned about the purpose of a thesaurus and used it to find the adjectives and find alternative words’ Phoenix
‘In numeracy we have been rounding to the nearest 10’ Liam
‘We have been using numberlines to jump and help us reach the answer’ Robbie
Health and Wellbeing
‘In health and wellbeing we have been learning about Big Deal Little Deal’ Taylor
‘We started HWB wheels which show different scenarios and decided if they were a big deal or a little deal’ Amy
‘We were learning about solids, liquids and gases and we made molecules out of playdoh’ Kyle
‘The solids are tightly packed together and there is no space to move so they keep their shape’ Kayla
We have been working really hard in P4a and learning lots of new things every day.
Our interdisciplinary topic this term has been all about heroes and villains. In LITERACY we created our own superhero/super villain character. We have been writing comic strips and newspaper articles based on our class novel. In TECHNOLOGIES we designed a superhero cape using different materials which would be a good match for our characters. We then used our capes in SCIENCE where we attached them to our superhero vehicles and used wind power to make them move!
We hope you enjoy watching the video of our learning….watch this space as we have some big ideas for Term 2!
All gym kits and gym shoes have been put in school bags for a wash and a size check, please make sure they come back to school after our holiday.
Have a wonderful holiday and remember….swimming kits the first day back for Group 1 (Tuesday 23rd October)

‘In numeracy we were doing multiplying numbers by 10 and 100’ Lucie M.
‘In Maths, we had to complete a 2D shape making sure it was symmetrical and then tried to draw it in our jotters without help’ Liam
