Miss Cooper and Mr Watson welcome you to P4.
P4 is an exciting and fun year at school, full of lots of opportunities to see, experience, learn and develop a range of skills and concepts across different areas of the curriculum.
Throughout the year, P4 explore the genres of writing and are provided with opportunities to write for various purposes across the curriculum. Much of our writing is based on our exciting topics. We enjoy reading a range of fiction and non-fiction books in our reading groups and we read 3 class novels throughout the year. Children are provided with formal and informal talking and listening opportunities across the curriculum.
Throughout P4 we will be learning lots about the five main elements of Numeracy and Mathematics to include: Processes in Mathematics, Number, Data Handling, Measures and Shape and Space.
World Around Us:
Our topics this year are:
Personal Development and Mutual Understanding:
We thoroughly enjoy learning about all aspects of the PDMU programme because we get the opportunity to explore our personal and emotional development. Through our circle time and weekly lessons we learn all about health and safety, relationships with others, and how we can work together for our own good and the good of our community.
P4 will get the opportunity to participate in a variety of ICT based learning activities. They will gain experiences in using desktop computers and iPads and they will utilise the Interactive Whiteboard in their learning experiences across various aspects of the curriculum. We are looking forward to engaging in self and peer assessment activities where we can compare and contrast our work.
PE topics include; basketball, football, dance, uni-hoc, gymnastics and athletics.
All of the Arts will be delivered through our World Around Us topic. Children in P4 also have the opportunity to audition for choir and for a part in our annual school production! The pupils also enjoy learning to play the recorder this year.
