Big Pedal 2021

Sustrans Big Pedal - Sustrans.org.ukThis year, as always, the school will be taking part in the Big Pedal, the Sustrans national competition to get everyone moving – cycling, scooting and walking.

Below you will find a video and information sheet.

This year will be a little bit different as we are asking children to bring their bike or scooter on alternate days.  Please see the timetable below for your child’s days.

Date Classes

Tues 20th April P1,P3 and P4

Thur 29th April P2,P5,P6,P7
Fri 30th April P1,P3 and P4

There are only a few simple rules –

all children must wear a helmet on a bike

bikes and scooters should be wheeled through the playground on the way in and out of school and on the ashy path.

Parents and younger siblings are welcome to join in the challenge.

Each child will get a chance to cycle or scoot with their friends in the playground during the day.

We would ask that you check over bikes and scooters to make sure they are safe to use, especially if they haven’t been used for a while.

Please don’t worry if your child is unable to bring their bike or scooter on any of their days.  Walking counts too!

We are all looking forward to the Big Pedal. It should be lots of fun.

P4F & P4J Homework – Monday 22nd March

Homework

Reading – At some point this week you will be given a banded reading book. This is to be read at home and in school, so please bring it in every day. If you do not have a banded book yet, you should be remembering to take home your AR book.

Spelling – You may wish to practise your spelling words on Spelling City. If you would like to complete written work, you can complete an active spelling task using the PDFon Teams. You do not have to hand this in.

The spelling rule this week is ‘y’ for the short vowel sound ‘i’ (as in fin). There are no new common words this week.

Group A – myth, pyramid, lyrics, syrup.

Group B – myth, pyramid, system, lyrics, typical, syrup

Maths – You now have your target table home to practise. You should practise reciting your table from memory and also memorise the multiples going forwards. For example, for the 3 times table, you would say 0,3,6,9,12 etc. It would be good if an adult can listen to you doing this and when they ask you to stop, tell them what times what gives that answer. Once you think you know your table well, ask an adult to ask you the facts out of sequence. You may wish to practise your number bonds and tables by playing Hit the Button, Sumdog or any games on the P4 Maths Links. Hit the button is a good one because you can set it to your target table.


Thank you,

Miss Mackay & Mrs Allan

P4F & P4J Spring Tea & Homework – Monday 15th March

Spring Tea

Information regarding the Spring Tea was posted on Teams on 8th March. Thank you to those of you who replied. All orders should have been received by Monday 15th March. However, as long as we know by tomorrow morning you can still order. If you do not wish to order a Spring Tea can you please bring your packed lunch on Tuesday 1st April. 

Homework

For the next two weeks, we are focusing on reading for homework because during home learning you did not have full access to reading books at your book band level or a variety of accelerated reading books.

Spelling – You may wish to practise your spelling words on Spelling City. If you would like to complete written work, you can complete an active spelling task using the pdf given during home learning. You do not have to hand this in.

Maths – At some point this week you will have your target table home to practise.  You may wish to practise your number bonds and tables by playing Hit the Button, Sumdog or any games on the P4 Maths Links but we are not giving any written tasks.


Thank you,

P4 Home Learning – 22nd February

Hi P4,

We hope you are having a great weekend with your family. Have a look at the 22nd February Timetable to see what your learning for this week looks like. The lessons highlighted in green are live meetings with your teacher or P3-4 Assembly.  It would be great if you could join us. The lessons highlighted in yellow are recorded by one of the P4 teachers. The lessons highlighted in blue have links to videos.

Remember to check-in on the Check-in post, leave a compliment for the Pupil of the Day, read then complete the tasks and ask your teacher for help at any point during the school day (9.00-3.15pm). Take regular breaks away from your laptop/tablet and do something active to raise your heart rate. Use the Chill-out Zone to catch up with your classmates but don’t spend too long there.

Please carefully the instructions in each task and complete the task to the best of your ability. Once you have received feedback, please read it to see what you have done well and what your next steps are. Ask your teacher for help/advice because that is what we are here for! We are very impressed with all of your effort and work so far, so please keep it up!

Please remember that it is World Thinking Day on Monday 22nd February so you can wear you uniform into the hub or at home and post a photo. 

Thank you,
