Welcome to P4/5!

Summary of Learning

We are currently reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J K Rowling.

In Term 2 we are learning about Scotland.  We are finding out about the geography of Scotland, Scottish history and famous Scots.

In language we are focussing on non-fiction reading and writing.  We will be writing instructions, recipes, newspaper reports, fact files and leaflets.  We are also enjoying reading cafes where we have the chance to read and discuss books.

In Maths, the Primary 4s are learning to divide, divide using remainders, the 6 and 7 times tables, how to use money to £10.  The Primary 5s are learning about symmetry, fractions (equivalent and simplifying), introduction to decimals, money calculations and finance.

All children – remember to practise times tables regularly.
