We have been learning about Scotland’s traditions this week. We had fun trying to play the chanter and trying on a kilt. The chanter was really noisy!!!

Last week we received a visit from the ambulance. We had lots of fun when the paramedic switched on the siren and the flashing blue lights.

We have also posted our letters to Skeld Primary in Shetland. We hope to receive some replies so that we can learn about island life.

Have a fantastic Easter break!



Our Visit From a Lifeguard

Reminder – tomorrow (Friday 18th March) your child can come to school dressed ready for action in aid of Sports Relief. Please bring along a donation for this cause if you can.

We were very lucky to receive a visit from a lifeguard this week. He taught us about the dangers we could face when near or in water. We now know the 4 SAFE rules.


We have been busy creating designs inspired by the artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh. We used both oil pastels and water colour paints to create our designs.

Writing – we have been planning and writing our own Katie Morag books. Our stories are looking and sounding fantastic. We used time connectives to help us plan our stories.




World Book Day

Reminder – we will be visiting the book fair on Monday. If your child wishes to buy a book, please ensure they bring their money to school in a sealed envelope with their name and class on the front. 

We really enjoyed sharing our favourite books with the primary 5 boys and girls for World Book Day.

We have been learning the alphabet in French. Some of us wanted to dance to the alphabet song.

Maths: We have been creating odd and even posters, playing different subtraction games and using the giant number line to find the middle number.

Some of the boys and girls retold the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff by creating their own puppet show. They were able to build their set, puppets and take on the role of one of the characters.

The World of Work

World Book Day – could everyone please bring their favourite book to school tomorrow (Friday 4th March). We will be pairing up with primary 5, room 13 to read our books.

This week we have been busy creating short pieces of drama about places of work. We discussed different types of jobs and what we think it would be like to work in each of these roles. Our plays had to have a beginning, a middle and an end and everyone in the group had to have a role to play. We enjoyed using costumes and props to make our plays more exciting to watch.

We went on a word hunt around the classroom. Once we had found a word we had to place it in the correct category by identifying the phoneme within the word.


Some of the class created models of houses from the past and the present. As a class we looked at the difference between the two designs.

In maths we have been learning about tens and units. We had fun using the boards to display our answers.
