P.4’s Short Week Back

Hello everybody.

Welcome back after the February break!

On Tuesday we started our Race for Life training. We were divided into 3 groups. Logan T is in group 3 and thought it was really good. Jack is in group 2 and he thought his heart was beating really fast!

On Wednesday we started division. We learned to break up cubes into equal groups so they don’t have a fight! Abbie thought it was good fun.

We also started learning about using Super Settings. We wrote about a gate that was never open.

We also started science with Mr Wilson. Hope thought it was amazing. We will have science every Wednesday and Thursday.

We started Reading Buddies with P2!!!

On Thursday we did some Art for our new topic – HARRY POTTER!! We designed a crest for our team just like the Hogwarts crest.

Bye bye,

Love P4

P.4’s Sketchy Week

Hi everyone!

On Monday we did Music with Mrs Mailer. We learned some Scottish songs. In P.E we did a game called rats and rabbits and balances. Sammy thought it was crazy.

On Tuesday we had assembly and Mrs Carlyle showed us the new Eco Bins. Lauren thought they were beautiful.

On Wednesday we did our newspaper reports about the weather. It was terrible weather on Tuesday so we wrote about it. Our Star Writers were … MARK and LAUREN!!

On Thursday we did a reading comprehension about Giant Pandas and we did a magic e worksheet. We did a maths test!

5 P3’s had to come to our class because Mrs Carlyle was sick. There was also a powercut! It was a bit creepy.

Today we did drawings of a hammerhead shark. We had to try hard to sketch. Jack thought it was very hard!

Bye bye,

Love P4 x
