Primary 4 – Birds and homework task!

 

The year has flown by and we are already in our final term of primary four. Last term was very busy and successful and we would like to thank all parents for their support with our Viking museum. The children thoroughly enjoyed sharing their learning with you.

This term our focus will be on Birds. We will be learning about different types of birds and hopefully going in to the local community to go bird watching.We would be grateful if you could ensure your child has appropriate outdoor clothing for this. As part of the topic the children will design and make a bird box and give a short presentation to the class.Homework task

Please note our class assemblies this term will be on the following dates:

P4McC 22/4/16

P4W/B 13/5/16

 

 

 

Primary 2’s Summer Term

We can’t believe it’s the last term of Primary 2 already!  Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?  We have made a great start to the term and are encouraging each other to be that little bit more independent and to take more responsibility for our learning.

We are hoping that the sun will shine for us as we begin to investigate the effects of weather on daily life.  This, in turn, will give us lots of opportunities to take our learning outdoors and into our new classroom……

Keep your eyes peeled for more information about how we are getting ready for Primary 3!
