P4┬áhave been learning about electricity this term. We can now build a range of different circuits and explain why some circuits work and others don’t. Investigating was great fun and we are looking forward to our next science topic.

World Book Day Assembly

On 8th March P4 delivered an assembly on World Book Day to the whole school. We had a great time finding out about different authors, everyone’s favourite books and taking a closer look at our school library.

Thank you to everyone that was able to come to our assembly.

And remember keep reading!

Good Choice Marbles

After planting bulbs at Hazlehead Park, P4 decided to choose playing in the park as their good choice reward. Marbles have been collected in term 1 and 2. Lots of fun was had by the pupils!

Bulb Planting

On Thursday 8h November P4 helped our local community by planting bulbs at Hazlehead Park. If you are visiting the park in the spring have a look near the maze for our hard work.

Working with P1/2

Primary 4 and Primary 1/2 have been paired up to work as partner classes this year. P4 went to visit the boys and girls in Miss Dyker’s class last week and introduce ourselves. P1/2 showed us round their classroom and told us about their favourite part of their class. We then returned the favour by showing them what working in P4 is like. Some of Miss Dyker’s class were lucky enough to have a story read to them.

We can’t wait to work with them and to share our learning with P1/2 again.



Spelling – Elkonin Boxes

Pupils in Primary 4 have been learning how to use elkonin boxes to help with spelling.


  1. select a word
  2. sound out the word
  3. put the first sound in the first box
  4. continue for the 2nd, 3rd sound …etc until the word is complete

(Remember: 1 sound per box, a sound can be made of more than 1 letter)

Have a look at P4 splitting ay/ai/ea/ey/a-e words into the individual sounds.
