Primary 4 30.10.19

Hello everyone

We have had a fun, busy week in Primary 4. In numeracy we have been revising our knowledge of the 8 times table and we have introduced division by 8 facts. The children were able to notice the similarities between the times table facts and division facts. We will continue to consolidate this knowledge using a variety of strategies in class.

In writing, we have been continuing to write persuasive letters. This week the children wrote letters to their families at home (keep your eyes peeled for copies of these letters coming home in school bags!) The children’s job was to convince their families to allow them to watch their favourite movie at home. The children had great ideas on how to convince you!

In French Miss Carrigan and Mrs Muir have been teaching the children about weather. The children have revised different weather vocabulary. They have now begun to have a short conversation about the weather including information about the seasons. This was very tricky at first but the children worked very hard to pronounce the different vocabulary correctly. We will continue to work more on this in class.

Tomorrow we will be visiting Craigswood Sports Centre to take part in the local Cluster’s handball tournament. Children should come to school dressed in their PE kit and can stay in their kit for the rest of the day. We are looking forward to watching the children further develop the skills that they have learned with Mrs Ferguson in PE lessons.

Homework is due in tomorrow. Please see the class newsletter that will be coming home shortly for more information about homework. Remember only starred activities need to be completed. Each child should now have a reading book. Please encourage your child to bring their reading book to school each day as we use these during reading lessons. Children also have the opportunity to read their reading pages with a partner, an adult or by themselves each day in class.

Reminders – Indoor PE: Thursday
Outdoor PE: Tuesday

Thank you for your continued support. Have a great week.

We were so disappointed this week that we did not get to go to our Multisports Festival due to the weather not being on our side. We have a feeling Summer Winter did not want to be left alone whilst we were away and so made sure it rained hard all day! Hopefully this will be rescheduled for later in the term. Thank you so much for everyone coming to school prepared though!

We have been busy practising our songs and words for our school Harvest assembly. We  wrote acrostic poems to share our knowledge about Harvest, some of which you can see in the writing corridor.

Primary 3B (Miss Smith’s class) have been chosen to take part in Futsal every  Tuesday for the next 8 weeks and then Primary 3A (Mrs Smith/ Ms Matheson’s  class) will take part in this next term. We are very excited about this and looking forward to it. Nothing has changed, PE kit on the same days for 3B – Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The Parent’s night appointment books are now open and slowly filling, so be sure to book an appointment to come in for a chat. We are looking forward to seeing everyone again.

Thank you for your support,

Miss Smith, Mrs Smith and Ms Matheson
