In P.E the boys and girls in Primary 4 have been doing some floor work as part of Gymnastics. They have been working on making shapes with their body and using these positions to start forward and backward rolls.  They found the backward rolls tricky at the start but managed to do some wonderful examples by the end.

We have been learning all about using grid references. The class have been using their skills to locate points on a grid and write down the coordinates of objects.

Volume was one of our maths topics this term. We learned how to measure in litres and millilitres and compared the volumes of different shaped containers. The class had a go at making their own before testing the volume to see which container could hold the most.

P4P have been very busy this month. We have been creating a story about the character on the screen “Tom Trueheart” after watching character description.

In mathematics, we have been investigating how to use balance scales and measure weight using non-standard units. Some of us have been creating our own container that will be used to investigate differences in volume. The aim is to be the group with the container than can hold the most when it comes to testing them and measuring the volumes.
