Welcome to P4!
My name is Miss Morrison and I’m the Primary 4 teacher. In P4 we study many fun and exciting topics, these include: Myths, Legends and Ancient Greece, Pirates, Green Fingers and Journeys. We enjoy learning through our Literacy and Numeracy work, collaborating in groups on ICT tasks, learning outdoors and doing lots of experimenting and investigating.
Watch out for us here, on Seesaw and on the school’s Facebook page. If you want to contact me, my email address firstname.lastname@example.org

All of the children have settled back into school routine well and are enjoying learning in Primary 4. We have a busy first term ahead and I hope you will keep you up-to-date with us through our regular Seesaw posts and school website.
Our World Around Us topic this term is ‘Myths and Legends’ and the children have really enjoyed learning about Ancient Greece and various Myths and Legends so far.
In Activity Based Learning we will be busy navigating the spheros, writing secret messages using the Greek Alphabet, creating our own Greek Olympic Games, acting out the story of ‘The Trojan Horse’, creating information leaflets on Greece and much more.
We will complete various writing activities linked to our topic to develop our writing skills; facts on Greek Gods, acrostic poems and persuasive writing to Pandora. We will also be completing various Myths and Legends comprehensions and using all of the appropriate sentence structure rules to answer the questions correctly. Our genre of writing is Narrative and we will be looking at various narratives and highlighting their key features as well as beginning to write our own.
In Numeracy this term we will be revising a lot of our number work and continuing with place value, addition and subtraction to 1000. We will be learning about 2D/3D and their properties- edges and vertices. We will construct 2D shapes using various materials and look at what 2D shapes can create other shape. We will explore tessellations; what shapes fit together to create a tessellating pattern, create our own tessellations and examine tessellations in real-life. We will recap on days of the week, months of the year and seasons, how many days in a month and read and interpret information from calendars We will work on time- o’clock, half past, quarter to and past, 5 past and am & pm.
