P4G Reflective Friday Week Beginning 4th February

Here’s what we’ve been up to in P4 Giggling Tokyo class this week:


  • We wrote diary entries about Marty or Will from The Legend of Spud Murphy.  We finished reading Spud Murphy and were a little bit surprised by the character Spud!
  • In Spelling, our new pattern was tch endings.  Please see the list below.
  • In Reading, we drew a picture to show what has happened in the part of our  reading books that we had just read.  We added captions and wrote a paragraph about why we thought the event was important.

Why not have a go at the visualiser sheet that we did in class using either a reading book of your choice or your school book?


Have a look at the spelling words below.  Could you write some really silly sentences using the words below?

Maths and Numeracy

  • We have been learning about the 24 hour clock and about using time tables.  We made up our own challenging  questions using Blooms’ Taxonomy linked to time.
  • We are continuing to work on our subtraction skills.  We worked on 1, 2 and 3 digit numbers and used an empty number line to help us.
  • We continued to work on our takeaway beat-that’s.

Ideas for home learning

Play Hit the Button or the Mental Maths Train to become speedier at your quick recall of sums.



Here is the takeaway sheet we are working on in our beat thats.  We’re aiming to answer a section within 30 seconds.  Why not have a go?

Beat thats- take aways

Other Areas:

  • Generation Science came in to do a workshop all about Electricity.
  • In Gym, we used the equipment to practise our gymnastic skills.
  • We did some art work in the style of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
  • We made Lewis Chessmen using clay.  It was fun but very tricky and some people found it frustrating!
  • We saw the P6 assembly about great inventions by Europeans.
  • We shared our learning about Valhalla with the other P4s and they shared their learning about Viking food and clothes with us.
  • Thanks to all the parents who came to see the drop-in session, we hope you enjoyed it!

Ideas for home learning:

  • Now we have come to the end of our learning about the Vikings can you make an A-Z of things linked to the Vikings? For example: A could be Asgard, B could be battle….how many can you think of?

Enjoy your week off!
