P4a, angles everywhere!

In numeracy this week we have been learning about right angles. We made right angle checkers and learned that a right angle is always a right angle no matter how big or small a shape is. We explored angles outside and found a huge stone slab that looked just like our angle checkers.

We began to make a map of our own farms. We had to use our knowledge of maps and area and also created a key.

In literacy we started writing persuasive arguments. Next week we will be holding a debate with P5a as our audience. P5a visited us this week to share their learning on different countries in Europe.

We did shot put in PE and we think we were amazing!

We also got outside lots, Tuesday was Rugby day and Thursday we had an extra long play outside which Miss Baillie gave us because we have worked so hard this term.

Today we will be taking home some of the seeds we planted- these just need to be planted into our gardens where they should grow bigger and flower.

The next few weeks will be busy in P4a. We are going to the Marches Book Festival on Monday- leaving at 10.45 we need a packed lunch, drink, waterproof coats and sensible shoes for this.

The following Monday- Monday 12th June- we have our trip to the National Museum. Packed lunches, snacks and a drink are needed for this- Please do not send in money as we will NOT have time to visit the shop.

Reminder we will be off on Tuesday 13th June for the Marches and the Gala Day is on Saturday 17th June.

Have a great weekend 🙂
