In maths we have been learning about how to lay out and do adding sums with carrying and also about symmetry. We have been designing and building wind turbines and learning about renewable and non-renewable energy. For Remembrance Day we made poppies and learned a bit about the war. For our topic we have been learning about the parts of a flower and how plants adapt to their habitats in Scotland. For Growth Mindset we designed our 5 Bs so we can learn to be more independent with our learning.
In P4 we have been doing winter pictures using tracing paper and gel pens to draw fireworks In maths we have been ordering numbers. In PE we have been doing more gymnastics and benchball. In our topic we have been learning about orienteering and we completed an orienteering challenge outside. We had to collect numbers which translated into words which spelt out 'Would you like hot chocolate?!'. Then we had hot chocolate with marshmallows. Last night we went to the Hallowe'en disco and we had a great time!
In PE we have doing gymnastics and testing out the gymnastic moves that we can do on the floor like cartwheels, handstands, forward rolls and backwards rolls. We have been learning to play benchball. We have started our class novel 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' and we have been learning about synonyms. We have been learning about MRS GREN and the 7 life processes that all living things do.
In primary 4 we have been writing persuasive letters to Adventure Holidays to try to persuade them to add Scotland to their outdoors holidays list. We have been doing lots of shape work. We've been working on our forest park designs for people to go to on their holidays. We have been talking about our class charter and qualities and we made HWB quality wheels. We have been learning about food chains which are things that show us animals and how they depend on each other to eat and survive. We are looking forward to our holidays!
Primary 4 have had a great start to the new year. Our new topic is 'The Great Outdoors' and we have been planning all our learning and what we want to find out about. We want to know about how to use maps, what wildlife there is in Scotland, what sort of outdoors activities you can do in Scotland like hiking, rafting and paddle boarding and much more! Mrs Daniels is going to help us design forest parks, set us The Bear Grylls Challenge and teach us campfire songs. And she has promised us hot chocolate!
