P4G Reflective Friday 20.4.18

What have we learned?


In Handwriting we were learning to form our capital letters correctly.

We finished reading Kaspar, it was an interesting ending that was both happy and sad depending on which character you were.

In reading, we learnt about being a Book Detective, which we will start as a class on Monday when new reading books will be sent home. We learned about the role of Word Finder looking at new, unusual or interesting words and looking them up in a dictionary.  On Monday everyone will get a new reading book and have pages to read at home.   Please encourage your child to read what has been set so that they are ready for their group to meet.

Numeracy and Maths:

We were looking at the properties of 3-D shapes and learning what makes a prism.

“Two triangles and three rectangles would make a triangular based prism.” Katie and Ingrid.

“We figured out that a prism can’t be a prism if it doesn’t have any rectangles.” Alexandra

We learned about times tables using repeated addition to work out the answers. Keep working on the 2, 4 and 8 times tables. What patterns can you spot in these tables?

Everyone should continue to work on their Beat Thats.

Other areas:

Ukulele teachers came in to begin teaching ukulele skills.

The whole of Primary Four have been working on our World of Work assembly. We are learning Nine to Five, here is a link if you want to practice at home.


We moved to new tables and invented our new table names, linked to Food.

What have we enjoyed?

“I have enjoyed doing the Nine to Five song.” Rebecca

“I loved playing the ukulele.” Lily

“I liked making the table names.” Charlie

What have we found challenging?

Beat-that’s; learning the song; doing the letter search with Mrs Conlin; times tables quiz.

What would we like to learn next week?

Start the Vikings, more ukulele, cooking.
