P4A – Term 1

Wow! What a quick term!

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)

Strictly Come Pinkie 2017

On Wednesday we had this years annual Pinkie Talent Show…. with the them of Strictly Come Pinkie!

It was an entertaining feast for your eyes and ears! We had dancing, singing, comedy and gymnastics on show. In our eyes, everyone was a winner and all were so courageous to perform in front of such a huge audience! Well done everyone. Our fabulous winner this year who took away the glitter trophy was Maddie from P6 who sang ‘The Climb’.

We want to say a big thank you to our panellists who were Mr Scott, Alan Penman, Colin Smith and Anna Potter!

Check out the spectacular event which happened on Wednesday, captured by Mr Smith and his camera.
