Primary 4

Welcome to our class!

Teacher: Mrs Alice Adamson

Happy Monday! 23.3.20

All parents have now been emailed the GLOW log in details for their children, hopefully pupils can have a go at logging in at home and exploring Glow. Last week I set up a GLOW team for Primary Four, this is like a virtual classroom. The children can ask questions, complete quizzes, share work, work on documents together and download files and resources, they can also private message myself or Mrs Claire Adamson (ASN PT). There are short training videos to help everyone access this resource on the main pain of our school blog, as well as in the help section on GLOW, these are very useful.

I am still contactable during school hours Monday – Friday on if you would like any advice, support or questions answered about Primary Four and their online learning.

Hope you are all well, keep safe,

Mrs Adamson.

Term 2

The Christmas term flew by with lots of learning and development of our skills and knowledge. We began writing stories about our own made up monsters, we learnt about characters, settings and main events and how to link these together. We tried out new ways of learning our spelling words and sounds and experimented with new literacy games.

We used our ‘Wonderworld Wednesdays’ to learn about different places around the world, we especially liked using maps on the board to see where these places were in relation to Shetland! We particularly liked the story of Buddha and how he became so influential to some cultures, we rewrote the story in groups making use of all the different skills our peers have. We particularly enjoyed our Culture Day where we made pitta breads with Gus, learnt about Hindu Wedding ceremonies and the Hindu culture from Ashley and tried different dips from around the world. The Indian treats and Mango Lassi were so tasty!

Children in Need saw us raising money for charity, we spent some time in class learning about the importance of caring for others. We also started our ‘Times Table Workouts’, Primary 5/6 showed us how they learn their times tables in class and once we had the moves we were away! We now practise our times tables every day as a class workout. Hot Chocolate Fridays with Mr Clubb and Mr Manson have also been a wonderful new tradition.

Term 1

Term 1 was a busy one, we adjusted to life in Primary Four and got to know the routines of the classroom and our timetable very well. We spent much of our maths time working on addition and some place value, really making sure our number knowledge was being practised every day. We started a new class novel – The Worlds Worst Teachers by David Walliams, we are all really enjoying this book! In literacy we spent 8 weeks building a story from the beginning, focusing on different aspects each week such as characters, setting and dialogue. We had our school photos and class assembly as well as plenty of time outdoors for exercise and enjoyment. We also had a visit from Alistair Bruce, an astronomer from the Edinburgh Observatory, he showed us his infared camera and told us about the mission to the moon.



Class Assembly, we’re very proud of how well we did!
