Number sequences and rules, Complex Partitioning, Greater Than, Less Than, Columns, Odd/Even, Split Strategy, Dienes, Arrowcards, Rounding, Numicon, Tens Frames, Expanding and Multiplication are just some of the strategies we used to show the value of a number in Number Talk.
All children have worked incredibly hard to secure their knowledge of these different strategies. This is through hard work, determination and perseverance.
During Scots Week Miss Mackay took in her violin and played some traditional Scottish music to us. We listened carefully to the music and created an image inside of our heads. When the music played we thought of different memories we had. We drew these memories on paper and shared them with each other afterwards.
We also listened to Ava M play her violin. She regularly attends Big Noise after school club and is currently learning to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. We thought she did a fantastic job playing to the class – very courageous too!
Well done, Ava!
In PE we have been developing our core movement skills. These range from running, throwing and catching, to balancing and control body movements.
As our topic is based around the Circus we have been working on balancing acts and creating sequences with partners. Here are pictures of some P4 pupils showing excellent control in their balances – some of which were for longer than 3 seconds…. and one handed (Kyle)!!
Also, making a link with their shape learning. Next weeks challenge is a triangle in groups of 3!
Super effort everyone 🙂
Just a small post to show you our magnificent juggling skills last week in P4.
The Moscow State Circus better watch out, St Pius Jugglers will be centre stage soon!!
