Monday, September 30th, 2019

Since the beginning of the year we have had lots of fun learning about numbers through play.  We have enjoyed using  a variety of materials to make numbers, count one-to-one, match numbers, sequence and order numbers.  We have develop our knowledge and understanding and worked really hard.

Did you know that Pierre has a pet rabbit? Pierre loves lots of different animals but he’s a bit scared of some.

It means I have a rabbit.

J’ai un chien. (I have a dog).

J’ai un chat. (I have a cat).

J’ai un poisson rouge. (I have a goldfish).

J’ai un hamster. (I have a hamster).

J’ai un serpent. (I have a snake).

J’ai une perruche. (I have a budgie).

J’ai une souris. (I have a mouse).

A Super Week in Primary 4!

Friday, September 27th, 2019

Primary 4 have had a super week!

We welcomed a new pupil to our class and we are making sure that she feels welcomed and included.

We have worked very hard yet again. We completed our Class Charter, we played Benchball, we acted out a story in Drama, we added tens to 3-digit numbers, we made posters about the Water Cycle, we learned about pets in French, we wrote our own poems and we started to prepare for our School Mass next Friday.

We have been working on our non-fiction books all week. One of our books is called Odd Eggs so Mrs Singer brought in a real ostrich egg to show us. It was huge!

Here are some of our thoughts:

I like adding and subtracting in Maths. Sam

I like doing the Reflection. I like thinking back. Mario

I liked seeing the ostrich egg. Jessica, Natasza and Kourtney

I liked doing Drama. Erin

I liked playing Benchball at PE. Kourtney.

I liked doing Art. Shannon

Please remember that Primary 4 will be reading the readings and prayers at Mass in the School Hall on Friday, 4th October 2019. The theme of our Mass will be the Pope’s Extraordinary Month of Mission.


P1 Football

Tuesday, September 24th, 2019

We had another great session with the football coach, Kevin.  We learned that in football there is an attacker, defender and goal-keeper. We were learning how to dribble the ball, shoot into the goals and how to save the ball.  It was great fun!

P1 – Let’s Make a Pattern!

Monday, September 23rd, 2019

This week in maths we are investigating repetitive patterns.  We love singing a song all about patterns.  ‘Banana, banana, meatball!’  This is a great song which has repetitive words and actions.  We looked at patterns in the environment and how patterns are made.  We used different concrete materials to make our own patterns.  The more we did it, the more complex the patterns were.  Well done everyone!

P1 – The Doctor will see you now!

Tuesday, September 17th, 2019

I am looking forward to the observe the learning which will develop through our new Doctor’s Surgery!  There is doctor and nurse costumes for role play.  Lots of opportunities to ‘have a go writing’, with prescriptions to be written, appointments to be made and patient details to be updated.  The doctor can take your blood pressure and even give an injection.  The nurses can wrap up swollen wrists and ankles using the rolls of bandages and supports.


Primary 4 have been having an Arty Week!

Thursday, September 12th, 2019

Primary 4 have been having a very Arty Week!

On Tuesday, we completed our wonderful geometric design with Miss Mackie. We used colour, line and shape to form 3D images. We used primary colours, opposite colours, cool colours and hot colours. We used vertical and diagonal lines.

On Thursday, we learned how to paint using watercolours. We were inspired by the work of the French painter, Claude Monet.
