P4H’s Learning this Week 18.09.20

Hello. It has been a very packed week again in P4H as we settle into the way of working. We have been developing numerous skills over the week.

We reflected on our week and created our Blog together

Reading We have been looking at adjectives in our reading books as well as reading in class and at home. We predicted what would happen

Spelling This week we revised the rules for ing ( the root stays the same or doubling the letter or dropping e and adding ing )

We revised our tricky words so far …could, should, would, other, another, people and water

We found that thousand, hundred, nine, eight four and two can be tricky to spell

Grammar We continued looking at adjectives and how to use them to describe characters in stories. We found some in our reading books ,

In the Storm we were being reading detectives. We talked about Annie and her family. We had to decide whether statements were true by reading the text and finding evidence .

We looked at a non fiction text about dogs and answered questions. We had to read the words carefully so that we could answer the questions. It was quite tricky.

Listening We listened a list of instructions to follow and managed to design a house.Not all the houses looked the same at the end!

Home learning

Spelling….. practice the last few weeks words plus maths vocab


We continued wit place value with 4 digit numbers adding 10,20,30 before and after a certain number eg 10 after 235 We challenged ourselves with some like…. 200 before 2300 or 300 after 3500

We have been learning about probability and chance .We had lots of fun with learning partners discussing whether something is certain, likely, even chance, unlikely or impossible

Home learning Get someone to say 4 digit numbers and write them in digits and words

Think about events and work out the probability level of them happening. Explain why/why not.



We made a list of what we want to know about Scotland and found out where it is in the world using an atlas..We worked out what we would need to use to find the answers.


Designed circuits in the playground which we tested on each other. We challenged ourselves in fitness training. We had to see how many star jumps, sit ups, runs and step ups we could do in 30 seconds. We recorded them and are going to do it again in a few weeks to see if we are fitter and can beat our scores

We talked about the skills we used in our “Loose parts” outdoor learning last week. The list was very long and included using our imagination , being creative, digging, pushing, rolling , lifting , working together , sharing , caring ,thinking , listening and concentrating

Here are a few photos of the fun we had !

In assembly we listened to P7F tell us about their learning. It is good to see everyone together every week.

We reflected on our week and looked forward to what skillls we were going to work on next week.

Have a good holiday weekend
