Class Teacher: Mr Armstrong
Welcome to the P5/4 webpage! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year and didn’t over indulge too much.
The pupils have settled in well after the Christmas break. This term in maths we will learning how to read both analogue and digital time and work with money.
In language we are currently working from our class novel ‘Cliffhanger’ by Jaqueline Wilson. Unlike previous years, the novel will remain in class with the pupils instead of being sent home. We are still pushing as much reading at home as possible to achieve our goals set by the First Minister’s Challenge!
Our current mini-topic is about Scotland. The children have been learning about the history of our wonderful country, our customs and culture and important geographical locations. We will also be trying our hand at some fantastic Scottish-themed art projects!
In the theme of our Scottish topic, the pupils are learning the poem ‘Zebra’ by the famous Scottish poet J.K Annand. This is a fantastic, good humoured poem, and one that should get a few laughs at our Scottish Afternoon. A copy of this poem has been stuck into each child’s spelling jotter.
P5/4 continue to tune into Newsround every day to ensure we keep on top of current affairs. Additionally, we have all noticed a huge improvement in our fitness since starting our daily mile back in August- even I am moving faster!
Thank you again for your continual support throughout the year. Check back soon for more updates!
As your child progresses with their reading you may wish to try some of the strategies to make reading even more fun and interesting.
