P4 Home Learning – 25-29th January

Hi P4,

We hope you are having a great weekend. Have a look at the 25th January Timetable to see what your learning for this week looks like. The lessons highlighted in green are 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.

Try your best and don’t worry if you are struggling with any tasks – 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 up the amazing effort!

Thank you,

P4 Class Teachers

P4 Home Learning

Happy New Year

We hope you had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed time with your loved ones over the festive period. We are so sorry that we won’t be seeing your smiling faces as soon as we thought but we will be getting right back into the P4 learning programme on Monday.

Here is a little rundown of how we would like our home learning to go:

  • There will be three main posts every day:
    • Every day you should say ‘hello/good morning’ in the Check-in post before starting any work. This will let us keep a register.
    • We will also have a Daily Task post where you will find the tasks for that day. There will be links there to take you to each assignment.
    • We will have a Pupil of the Day post where you can leave a compliment for your friend.
  • We will have a Team meeting every Monday and Friday at 12pm. If you can please join the meeting to say hello and give us your news. It will be so nice to hear everyone’s voices and hear what you have been up to. If you can’t join us, not to worry. P4H will have their first check-in meeting on Tuesday 12th because Miss Boyle is in the hub on Monday 11th.
  • Assignments – Please upload your work to the assignments so we can give you feedback directly. If you have any corrections or you would like to make improvements to your work, you can always make changes then upload again. We will set the closing date for assignments for one month and you can still hand them in after this date.
  • Daily Tasks – Every day you will have Literacy (spelling and at least one other task), Numeracy and Maths (mental and one main task), Health and Well-Being (Pupil of the Day, daily fitness and twice per week PATHS) and other curricular area .e.g. art, music, People in Place)
  • Non-assignment work– Some tasks will not need to be uploaded as an assignment. You can just add them by replying with a comment to the Daily Task post or uploading a photo using the paperclip icon when you reply to the post.
  • Please keep the General Channel tidy and only reply to the posts so there are not comments all over the place. Please only chat with your friends and use emojis and GIFs in the Chill-Out Zone. Do not share your gamer username on Teams.
  • We know that every home has different arrangements about when and how you do work, so please do not worry if you can’t get everything or anything done. You can only do what you can and please email us if you have any questions or worries.
  • Please use your Spelling and Maths Homework jotters to complete any work.
  • Technical Issues – Sometimes word documents, PowerPoints or other applications do not open on your device which is why we will upload them as two different versions. The Powerpoints might have voice recordings on them so make sure you go to ‘Slideshow’ at the top, then click on ‘From beginning’ to play the PowerPoint properly. You can get the computer to read PDFs to you. When you have opened the PDF, go to ‘View’ at the top then select ‘Read Out Loud’. Now select ‘Activate Read Out Loud’ and then either select ‘Read this page only’ or ‘Read to the end of the document’.

We are looking forward to working with you all on Teams and know you will all try your best which is all we are hoping for. Enjoy your weekend.

Kind regards,

P4 Class Teachers

P4 – Christmas Around the World Task

Click here for the task sheet.

Learning Outcomes: I can identify similarities or differences between Christian practices and traditions and compare them to how they are celebrated in Scotland.

Skill for Life: Synthesis – I can explain the different ways Christmas is celebrated in a country of my own choice.

Skill for Learning: Organisation and Planning – I can use my time wisely to research and create work that answers the given criteria.

Background

Christmas is a Christian festival celebrated around the world. Every country has different traditions and customs to celebrate which are similar and different to the way it is celebrated in Scotland. In class, we will be learning about Christmas is France and other countries.

Task

Your must work independently to research the traditions of Christmas in a country of your own choice. You should use the suggested websites to find out the following information:

  1. Flag – What does it look like?
  2. Santa Claus – What is he called and what does he do in your chosen country?
  3. Food – What do they eat on the build up to and on Christmas Day?
  4. How to say Happy Christmas in your chosen country
  5. Traditions – What might you see .e.g. trees, decorations, mascots, etc?
  6. Comparison – How do these compare to Scottish traditions (difference and similarities)?

Once you have all of the information, you must create a presentation to share your learning with your peers. You can present it in any way you want .e.g. poster, powerpoint, TV show, news report (these could be recorded at home and emailed to your teacher)… anything at all! Be creative and include all of the information.

Success Criteria

Your research must:

  • include all of the information above (all six points)
  • be creative (entertain your audience through exciting facts to keep their interest)
  • be enjoyable to look at (colourful, correct spelling, interesting images/drawings)

Christmas Mugs

The Christmas mugs with the children’s designs have now finally arrived and are ready to be taken home.  If your child ordered any and you are OK with him/her bringing it home in their school bag, then tell your child to let us know that and we will give it to him/her tomorrow.  If you would rather pick up the mugs yourself then please arrange to come in to the office at a quiet time (basically avoid drop off and pick up times).

For those of you who are doing the home learning, we can keep the mugs in school until you return next week or a parent/carer could come and pick it up at a quiet time throughout the day (as above, avoid pick up/drop off times.)
