Primary 4/5

Welcome to the first term of the new session. Primary 4/5 have already been extremely busy since returning to school.

In Maths the children will be working with number, measure and solving problems, and to make as much as possible ' Real and Relevant, ' tasks will be as active as possible. Please continue to support your child by revising tables often, discussing money and time and allowing them to weigh ingredients when baking! 

In Literacy the children will be expressing their knowledge and ideas by Talking and Listening through the film and novel ' The Sheep Pig. '  Ginn is the focus for class reading as well as a variety of short texts and comprehension activities to develop and enhance their skills. New vocabulary and spelling rules are introduced weekly. Please hear your child reading regularly and discuss what is read.

Our topics this year will include  The Jacobites, Solids Liquids & Gases and The Unsinkable Ship.

This year Primary 4 will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in November and the Sacrament of First Holy Communion in May.

Homework is issued from Monday - Friday. Please ensure the diary is signed daily and your child completes their achievement of the week on Thursday evening.

Looking forward to the year ahead and thank you for your continued support.
