P4H Wk beg: 5/3/18

Here is P4H dressed up for World Book Day (sorry it is sideways but it won’t seem to turn around).

Learning stories – Due to the snow days we had last week, learning stories will be handed out at parents evening.

Maths and Numeracy

We have been learning about tiling. We were trying to make tiling patterns with square paper and dotty paper. Doing it on dotted paper was much harder than square paper. We were using 2D shapes. We had to try and fit two shapes together to see if they would tile. For something to tile it must not have any spaces.

We have started making times table books. The book has got different strategies to help us learn our tables and division.


 We have been doing self, peer and teacher assesing for our Titanic diary. This is beginning to get easier.

We went down to P2 and read our picture books, it was great fun.

We learnt the ‘oi/oy’ sound in spelling. Here are our words;
