It was lovely to welcome the children back to school on Tuesday and hear all of their holiday news. We hope you all had a fun and relaxing Easter break.
This week we have begun work on our new topic of Mini beasts. The children are very enthusiastic about this topic so far and have lots of ideas about how to make this topic very exciting! We started by working with a partner on writing down what we already know about mini beasts, what we want to learn and how we want to learn. Then we worked with a partner to research a particular mini beast in detail. The children wrote notes under the following 4 sub headings: habitat, defences, diet and characteristics. The children used fact files, the internet search engine kiddle.co and non-fiction books to research their mini beast. Next week we will begin writing a report about our mini beasts using the notes we have taken.
Next Monday some of the children will be heading on their adventure to Auchengillan. The children are all very excited! Please remember to hand in any medication your child will need during the overnight stay to the school before the end of the week if necessary. Arrival times on Tuesday will be communicated by GroupCall so please make sure the school has your up-to-date contact information. Thank you.
The children who will remain at school will have an exciting couple of days exploring our topic in more detail, completing art activities, going outside for PE and working on the school show. We look forward to being back together again on Wednesday to share all of our news.
In maths this week we have been learning the 9 times table. We have been using a song to help us learn all the stations of the 9 x table. Here is the link if the children would like to listen to it at home: 9 x table song The children in P4C have even created a dance to go with the song! Please ask your child to show you it 🙂
Thank you for your support. Have a lovely weekend when it comes.
