In Primary 4 this week we have been continuing to learn about our Scotland topic. We have recieved a letter from Euan MacDonald who is looking for our help to find out more about Kelpies. We have also been learning about some of the major cities in Scotland and where they are on the map.
The classes have been using co-ordinates and grid references to find different locations on maps and make our own maps. The children will also be learning about Scottish traditions and symbols such as the thistle and tartan. They will be beginning to study Charles Rennie MacIntosh and how his designs and artwork are created.
The children have also been revising and learning their times tables. We will be continuing to develop our knowledge of the times tables and how to recall facts quickly. If you could help your child to practise their times tables at home that would be greatly appreciated.
The children have recieved new spelling sheets this week as we will be focusing on the different ways of making the ‘igh’ sound and when we should use them.
It is Shoe Share week at school. The pupil council are collecting any old shoes you may have that you do not use anymore so that they can donate them to Clarks and Unicef.
