This week in P4A we have been….

‘ We have been writing our diary entries of the ‘triple tragedy’ for our interdisciplinary learning’ Brooke

‘ I have been learning how to make 3D shapes from nets. I made a cuboid which made a cereal box’ Finlay

‘ We were talking about our next topic and we think we will explore under the sea because the environment is filled with plastic bottles’ Rocky

Have a lovely weekend.
Please remember school visit slips to be returned for our adventure to Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace.

P4A – World Book Day!

P4A have had a fantastic morning celebrating World Book Day!
We have enjoyed our assembly where we got to show off our character dress up outfits.
We have listened to some audio books online and are going to vote on our next class novel.
We have completed a scavenger hunt – finding a list of objects/characters and punctuation in our library books.

Book marks, character selfies and reading to follow 🙂

Learning in P4A

Some favourite lessons of the week 🙂

‘My favourite lesson this week was numeracy bingo. I liked it because it was fun and I enjoyed learning the three times table’ Faith

‘ My favourite lesson this week was P.E because we were doing football. I enjoyed tackling and shooting.’ Ryan

‘ We were finishing off our class castle in science. We were painting it and adding detail’ Keegan

Please remember P.E is now on Tuesdays and Fridays and all children should bring a change of kit.

Learning in P4A

A really busy week in P4A!

We have been exploring Article 29 – You have the right to be the best you can be!

Well Done to those children who brought in a ‘Wider Achievement’ to share with the class.

Fraser spotted Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace in a local magazine and brought it in to share – we are really excited to visit!

Amy spoke confidently about looking after her baby cousin. She also spoke about helping to look after some dogs with her family.

Alexandra told us about looking after her cat. She is now feeling more confident when picking Green Grass up and Green Grass trusts her. She also shared some photographs!

Faith is going to share her achievements of medals – she kindly brought them in for us all to see.

Ciaran brought in his favourite football top and spoke about how he was a mascot! He spoke about his training too.

Thank you to all the children who baked a cake for the competition and donated to the P7 fundraiser through buying cakes!
