Welcome back Primary 4!

Hello everyone!

Miss Clark & Mr Woodward here. We are the Primary 4 teachers this year. We were delighted to welcome back the new Primary 4 children to Carmondean on Wednesday. The children were happy to be back and there was a real buzz about the classrooms and the playground with everyone excited to see their friends again and be in their brand new classrooms.

We will update the blog every week to let you know about our adventures in Primary 4 as well as reminders and other important information so watch this space ūüôā

On Wednesday we explored two different stories all about feelings. “The Colour Monster” and “Lucy’s Blue Day” both told the story of characters who changed colour depending on how they were feeling. We spoke a lot about our feelings, how we can tell how we are feeling and what we can do if we feel sad, worried or angry. We will continue to explore this today in class.

Our PE days will be on a Monday and a Friday. Please note that all PE will take place outdoors so appropriate kit should include – old trainers, long jogging bottoms/trousers, a t-shirt and jumper/hoodie for when the weather gets colder. On our PE days (Monday and Friday) the children can come to school in their PE kit and stay in it for the full day. They do not need to get changed back into their school uniform at any point. We will begin PE lessons this coming Monday.

We will send a newsletter home in the next week detailing more information about what we will be learning in the coming weeks. Please look out for this.

We really appreciate all the support you have provided the children on their return to school. We are sure that although different, we will have a very fun and exciting year ahead of us in Primary 4 ūüôā

Have a lovely weekend.

Miss Clark & Mr Woodward

Primary 5

Hello and welcome to a new year in Primary 5. The children have settled in well and are beginning to become familiar with their new rules and routines.

We have had a busy start to the new term and the children have been working hard. We have created our class charter and discussed how we can be respectful of others and how others can respect us. We have written about what we did in the summer holidays and how excited we are to be back at school! The children are working on creating silhouettes to show a variety of information about themselves. See if you can guess who each silhouette is of.

Hopefully you will see the results of their hard work when you come to Meet the Teacher on Wednesday 28th August. We are looking forward to meeting you then.



Monday-outdoor kit required. Thursday indoor kit required.

Please ensure your child has a pair of indoor shoes to wear in the classroom.

Homework will start soon and we will put reminders on here to let you know when it is due.

Thank you for your continued support. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Have a lovely weekend.

Miss Morris, Mrs Gilmour, Mr Shanks and Mrs Muir



Primary 4 26.8.16

Welcome back everyone!

It has been so nice seeing everyone back at school and getting to¬†know everyone in our¬†new class. We have been very busy this week settling in, for some of us into a new classroom, and to others having new classmates! ¬†Welcome also to three students who are new to our stage, two in Miss Smith’s class and one in Miss Donaldson’s, and to Miss Miller, who will be helping¬†in Primary 4 up until the end of February. I have to say, I have¬†been very impressed so far with the way we have been following routines and getting used to being a Primary 4 in the upper school!

If anyone has any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to meeting some of the parents next Tuesday 30th August at Meet the Teacher. This will help us put names to faces and to pick up the class newsletter to find out what is happening this term in Primary 4.


Tuesday 30th 4:30 – 5:30 – Meet the Teacher. Feel free to drop in between these times.

Outdoor PE kit (outdoor shoes and warm active-wear) every Tuesday

Indoor PE kit (shorts and T-shirt) every Thursday



Due Monday 29th August – Please cover both spelling homework jotters and homework diaries with paper. If you do not have paper at home, please let me know as we can provide this without a problem.
