P4B – Autobiography Task

Hi Everyone,

P4B will soon be writing an autobiograhy about themself as part of literacy this term. Each pupil has been sent home a task sheet to help them gather important information about their life so far. Parts of this task will require a parent/guardian to help provide them with information (eg. When they took their first steps). Once the task sheet is complete the pupils will then return them to class for future use.

Please have the sheet completed and returned for Wednesday  29th so we can start writing our Autobiography that day.

Thanks,

Mr Burrell

P4B : UPDATE – Food Journey Map

Food Journey Map

When preparing and cooking a variety of foods, I am becoming aware of the journeys which foods make from source to consumer, their seasonality, their local availability and their sustainability. HWB 1-35a

As part of our food sustainability topic, Primary 4 are tasked with creating a food journey map. Take a close look at the labels on fresh food and veg at home, or in the shops, and we will use the information to log on our interactive map that you can access by clicking the image above.

***UPDATE*** Unfortunately the online Google Map does not allow people to add markers who have not been granted individual permission. If you could add a comment to this post with the food you have found and the country it is from, I will add it on to the map. Thank you, and apologies for the confusion!

Homework 13/01/20 P4B

P4B homework for this week.

Spelling – 4 sentences (due Friday)

Reading – Reading books (due Monday)

Maths – Number talk (due Friday)

The class have also had the chance to choose their new ACCELERATED READING books today. I have allowed them to take them home to read if they wish to do so.

P4 Scots’ Poems

Jings! Crivens! Help ma boab! It’s that time of year again, when we celebrate all things Scottish. We will be learning about famous Scottish people past and present in class, as well as looking at the Scots’ language and our hame land, Scotland!

You have to choose a Scots’ poem to recite for our annual Scots’ Assembly. This year you can choose any Scots’ poem (not Robert Burns). You have been given a double-sided sheet with suggestions, however you may choose any Scots’ poem you like (P4 Scots Poems for pupils). The minimum number of lines you must learn are 8.

Please challenge yourself with the length and pronunciation. There are two links below where you can have a look for other poems if you don’t fancy any of the ones I have given you. Please choose your Scots’ poem by Friday 17th January. You need to have practised and learned your poem for the week beginning 27th January, as this is when you will visit other classes to recite it.

Scottish Poetry Library

Electric Scotland

Success Criteria:

  • Good, clear diction
  • Pace
  • A good understanding of the poem
  • Correct pronunciation of Scottish words
  • Good facial and vocal expression conveying the sentiment of the poem
  • Variation in pace and tone
  • A moderate amount of appropriate gesture if it comes naturally and if it enhances the poem
  • Over-dramatisation should be avoided as this distracts the audience and detracts from the flow of words
  • You must recite their poem in verse not singing.

P4 Trip to Vikingar

The proposed P4 trip to Vikingar on Wednesday 4th March would cost £7. This cost has been subsidised by the school and includes the entry to Vikingar and the cost of the bus. Before we book the trip, we would like to ask all P4 parents/carers if you be willing to pay this? Please click the link below to complete the survey.
