This week in Primary 4 we’ve started our Scotland topic and the pupils were very excited to share what they want to learn about the country they live in! We had the Kelpies, why the unicorn is Scotland’s national animal, the cities, the history, the landscape, the languages, and much more! We began by trying to draw Scotland, which is difficult enough when you can see a picture but the pupils drew it picture-less and did a fantastic job! Linking back to our ‘The Dot’ artwork, we had lots of Scotland-ish drawings! We have also introduced climbing Munroes as our PE warm-ups; hopefully as a year group we can climb all 282!
We have been developing our typing skills this week now that pupils are very confident logging onto Teams. The pupils played typing games to improve accuracy and then played ‘Beat the Teacher’ to see who could get a higher score! While Miss Morris remained unbeaten, Mr Woodward didn’t fare so well, losing to P4B in spectacular fashion!
We’ve been continuing to read Yours Sincerely, Giraffe, putting on some fantastic character voices and learning about the importance of connecting with each other. We have also learned through about character and looked closely at Professor Whale. We talked about his characteristics and what kind of character he is using some fantastic adjectives to describe him!

PE: Mondays and Thursdays
Please ensure your child comes dressed in school PE colours on these days: black/ navy bottoms and a white t-shirt. As PE is outdoor this week, please ensure your child also has a black/ navy jumper as the weather is growing colder.
Homework has been posted on Teams and pupils can have paper copies if needed.
Thank you for your continued support,
Miss Morris and Mr Woodward
