In numeracy some of us have been further developing our strategies for division. Some of us are learning the 2x table. We have been learning about 3D shape. We have been making nets of different shapes.
In our writing we have been using Literacy Shed to learn how to retell a story in our own words. We have been learning to use the 5W’s to write newspaper articles. We have been working on getting better at summariser skills in our reading.
Our topic this term is castles. We have learned that some castles have a moat and some don’t. We can label different parts of a castle and we are looking at the people who used to live in a castle.
Some of us have been working towards our first reconciliation at church and we all did REALLY well last week!

In writing we have been looking at
character profiles and how to make one. We have
also been learning how to write a good letter – we
wrote a letter to the big bad wolf giving him a row
for frightening the three little pigs. We have been
learning about money in maths and how to make and
find change. Some of us have been working on
division with remainders in numeracy, we have also
been practising doubling and halving. We are doing
lots of practices for the Nativity. P3’s are the
narrators this year and P4’s are the musicians.

We have had lots of different
visitors in school. Our whole school enjoyed a
Fischy music workshop. P3/4 learned a song
about looking after our planet and we really
enjoyed performing it to the rest of the school
at assembly. We also had an assembly from the
NCPCC about keeping ourselves safe. In our
Africa topic we have been at learning about
endangered animals and how we can help save
them from extinction. In writing we are
focussing on planning a story. In numeracy we
have been learning new games to help with our
mental maths.

This term we are working hard on our imaginative
story writing. We are looking at how to make our
sentences even more exciting by adding wow words
and connectives.
In maths we are learning about 2D shape and how to
work systematically to solve a problem.
This term we are working with P2s in the afternoon
for interdisciplinary topics and skills groups. We
have just finished a mini topic on fairy tales and we
are now going to choose a country we would like to
We have been on 2 trips so far. We went to see
Joshua Seigal at the Book Festival – he was very
funny and inspiring! We also got to walk over the
new bridge called the Queensferry Crossing which
was an exciting opportunity.
