This term we have had lots of fun learning about the Vikings.

I enjoyed learning about the long ships because there was to learn like how they put shields around the side – Ruby

I liked learning about the Viking’s jobs. They were farmers, fishermen, traders and craftsmen – Alfie

I enjoyed learning about their clothes because there were materials that I didn’t realise exists at that time like linen, cotton, leather and silk – Jack M

We really enjoyed our drama workshop: We learned that the Vikings lived 1300 years ago – JackT

We all pretended to be Vikings raiding Lindisfarne and some of us were Monks.

In Maths, we have been leaning about fractions and shapes:

We have been working out fractions of amounts using counters and division – Grace

The top number in a fraction is called the numerator. The bottom one is called the denominator.  We used mirrors to check if pictures were symmetrical  – Joseph

We have been learning to make tiled patterns using 1 or 2 different shapes -Fraser

## P4A Snow Day Activities

Good Morning,

I hope you are all wrapped up warm and enjoying the snow.

Today is World Book day so I would like you to go on a scavenger hunt.  Print off the checklist below and enjoy looking through all the books you have at home.  You might discover a book you have not read for a while or a new one that captures your imagination.  Bring your checklists with you tomorrow.

Have fun and stay safe.

## P4 Christmas Party

P4 had a great Christmas party full of games and dancing.

On behalf of all the pupils and staff in P4, we would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

## Welcome to P4A

We have had a really busy start to the year.

In Maths we have been adding ten and multiples of 10. We have also been rounding to the nearest 10 and 100. We have played lots of games to help us learn.

We have been writing diary entries and creating eye catching posters to advertise castles and houses in East Lothian for tourists.

In Social Subjects we have been learning about East Lothian. We have been finding out what jobs people did in the coal mines. If we were alive in the 1800s we would not be at school but would probably be trappers in a mine. We are all looking forward to our trip to the Mining Museum next week.
