Primary 4 week beginning 31.10.16

We hope you enjoyed the Halloween weekend. We were glad to see so many of you at the school disco. The costumes were fabulous!!

This week we have been focusing on RME and linking this to our science topic about water.
We have been learning about how water is used in religion, particularly in ceremonies and prayer. We are now beginning to look at special buildings in world religions and are discussing and highlighting their features.

We have also begun our guided reading sessions in class. The children are following structured reading sessions that include independent writing tasks, reading with their group and discussions with the teacher about their story. We are setting homework to support the learning happening in the classroom.

After school clubs are now up and running and we would like to remind parents that the children play in the playground until 3:30 pm before clubs start. Clubs finish at 4:30, with the exception of homework club (it has a 4:15 pm finish).

Next week we will be sending out a table detailing the homework up until the winter break. Please refer to this if unsure about tasks. The diaries will still be used as plans may change and maths homework will be added to the diaries.

Homework due Friday 11th November (please see document attached for group reading):
Spelling
Reading – (see table)
Skye Boat song

Thank you,
The Primary 4 teachers
