What have primary 4/5 been doing?

Well it has been a busy week in P4/5. We enjoyed taking part in the outdoor day on Wednesday alongside the whole school.

Literacy

Whilst the primary 5 pupils attended green gym, the primary 4 pupils created a word search with the ‘e’ sounds. This was a fun and challenging way for the pupils to engage with their spelling words.

Can you see the ‘e’ sound in every word?

 

PE

In PE the class have started football. This week we looked at warm up drills such as high knees, side stepping and bum kicks. We also mastered the art of ball control through different dribbling exercises.

Watch out for Miss Robb’s soccer squad!

Dumfries House

Primary 4/5 went along to Dumfries House on Thursday for a chance to learn about the animals and their habitat. The children looked at what they needed to be happy and healthy and compared this with what animals need finding many similarities.

The children then went around the farm feeding the animals whilst learning all about their preferred habitats.

The second half of the day consisteted of pond dipping, creating nests for birds and assisting in building an ant hotel!

The rainy weather certainly didn’t dampen our spirits 🙂
