P4/5 will be an exciting year as we enjoy having fun and learning together.
Our topics this year include: Iron Man (P4), Stone Age (P5), Our Senses (P4), Egyptians (P5), Famous People (P4) Weather (P4), Flight (P5) and Journeys (P4). We also go on a school trip during the year which ties in with our learning. More details to follow!
In P4/5 we use the Lingusitic Phonics/Jolly Phonics spelling programmes and a range of schemes and 'real' books to help develop the essential skill of reading. We have a large variety of topic related fiction and non-fiction books in our class library and P5 also enjoy choosing books from the Accelerated Reading programme.
P4/5 will present challenges in terms of numberwork and maths concepts which are taught through fun, practical activities, investigations, games and computer programmes.
ICT forms an important part of our curriculum. We use iPads as well as desktop computers and the interactive whiteboard to complete tasks each week. This ensures that we are covering a wide range of core skills which are built upon year after year.
We always try to do our best so that we can be proud of ourselves and our classmates. Hard work and effort is rewarded with lots of praise, points, stickers, prizes, table-of-the-week trophy and a Friday sweet!
I really hope you enjoy your busy year in Primary 4/5!

Dear parents and P4s!
Thank you so much for all the kind words, beautiful cards and lovely gifts that I have been given over these past few days. You have all been so thoughtful and generous over the course of the year and I really have appreciated and valued your support.
I would like to wish you and your families a very happy and safe summer.
See you at the end of August!!!☀️
Dr. Beer, Rory's mum, came to talk to the P4s about her job as a Marine Biologist. She told us lots of fascinating facts about things that live under the sea.
We were all encouraged to get to the coast and investigate these treasures for ourselves by exploring in rock pools and along our many amazing beaches.
It is so important for us to look after our environment as many unwanted materials are ending up in our oceans and causing damage to the creatures that live there. Let's all play our part in keeping our world beautiful!
Thank you, Dr Beer!
