Another busy week in Primary 4…here’s what we have been up to…
At the start of the week both classes got into new home teams and created new home team names and a shield representing their team! They will work in this team for the rest of Term 3, where they will take part in lots of tasks.
For writing this week we looked at how to write a letter and the correct features a letter should have. We looked at a WAGOLL – What a good one looks like, to help us. The Pupils wrote letters to Heather Dyer the author of The Fish in Room 11. The pupils shared with her their favourite part of the book and also asked the author a question. We will be writing a different type of letter next week where we will be extending our skills.
On Wednesday afternoon P4 were making and setting SMART targets for the coming term. We will be referring back to these as the term goes on to see if we are on track.
We introduced our new topic this week… Famous Scots. We will be looking at Famous Scots from the past and present and what their influence has been. The pupils told us what they know, what they want to know and how they want to learn. We will take this and use this to help us plan our lessons. We will start of our topic looking at Robert Burns and his work, we are lucky to be having a Burns Expert coming in to work with the both classes next week – more on that later!!
P4a will be having sessions with the P.E teacher and the Music teacher this term. P4b will be having sessions with the Art teacher and French teacher this term.
More next week… come back then!
