Primary Four

Welcome to the P4 page for 2017/18!

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us by phoning the school or by email:

What to Bring

All children should bring a pair of indoor shoes to change into during the school day. Children should always bring a coat or jacket as we will often will be learning outside and wish everyone to be comfortable and warm. Please ensure all clothing, bags, shoes etc. have been named.

The children are allowed to bring in bottles of water to drink from throughout the day.

Physical Education

Our PE lessons are on Monday and Wednesday. The Wednesday lesson is with our PE specialist Mr Glass.

Children should bring shorts, joggers, t-shirt, long sleeve top and outside trainers so that they are appropriately dressed for indoor and outdoor PE lessons.

Homework

Core Homework

Spelling: Handed out on Monday and to be handed in on Thursday. The children will do extra spelling activities throughout the week and must bring their spelling jotter in every day.

Maths and Numeracy: Handed out on Monday and to be handed in on Thursday.

Reading: P4L: Handed out on Wednesday to be completed for Tuesday.

P4H: Handed out Thursday to be completed for Wednesday.

As children will be reading and using their books throughout the week in lessons so they must bring their reading books to school every day.

Occasional Homework

This year Queensferry Primary School is following the Health and Wellbeing programme, Building Resilience. Each term there will be a homework activity to complete. At times there will be a Social Studies, Science or Technologies task linked with our termly topic. When occasional homework is given the core homework will be reduced accordingly.
