Junk Needed

Good morning,

As part of their science learning, Primary 4M have been learning about magnets and are excited to build their very own magnetic game.

This is where we need your help. We are on the hunt for some junk modelling resources. Objects like cereal boxes or the cardboard centre of a kitchen roll are perfect. The children have discussed with me what they can bring in from home and what I can provide from the school, there is no need to buy anything new.

Thank you for your continued support.
Miss Grant

P4M Week Beginning 28th February

Just a wee reminder that it is World Book Day on Thursday.  Our whole school theme is based on the story, ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ by Drew Daywalt. Our class colour is brown, so it would be wonderful if you can all come wearing that colour.  This is instead of dressing up as a character.  If you do not have anything brown to wear, then let me know and we can arrange to make you a hat or a sash in that colour.   If you would like to bring in a book from home to share with a friend that would be wonderful!                                                     Remember that we have PE in the afternoon, so you still need to bring a change of clothing for that activity.

Spelling Homework: o os  oes and sentences.(for Friday)

Reading : Try to read a bit every day. If you have your Accelerated Reader Book at home, then remember to bring it in each day.

Maths: Time worksheet to be completed for next Tuesday. You can also hand it in before then.

Any queries, don’t hesitate to ask.

Maths Websites to Try at Home


A few pupils in my maths group asked me for any good websites or games to use at home so here a few of my favourites. Build upon your skills by starting with lower numbers and number bonds .e.g. to 10, and then move onto 20, then 100, then 1000.

Hit the Button Don’t worry about the timed aspect – just try your best!

Place Value Basketball

Place Value Charts

Ordering & Sequencing


Placing a Number on a Number Line

Helicopter Rescue (Find a number/Count On and Back)

Chopper Squad (1 more/less, 10 more/less)

Mental Maths Train  + – x ÷

Fact Families  If you know one fact, you know three more! 3 + 4 = 7 so 4 + 3 = 7, 7 – 4 = 3, 7 – 4 = 3

BBC Bitesize – P4  Watch videos and play games about many different maths concepts

Sumdog  Play the games to practise at your own level.

Have fun, try your best and remember that practise makes progress!
