Year 4

Welcome back to a new term and a new year in Primary 4.

May we take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy new year! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and that Santa brought lots of great presents! Hopefully everyone is well rested and geared up for another exciting and busy term of fun and learning.

In this Spring term our topic is 'Space'. We will have a wonderful time discovering the various planets in our solar system and finding out about the moon and its phases. We will study the sun and the movement of the earth and how they create our days and nights and the changes of the seasons through the year. We are looking forward to our Space themed day and our Space Rocket technology project. It really will be 'Out of this World!'

In Numeracy we will be covering the topics of time, money, direction and bar charts, linking a lot of this to our Space topic. We will continue to expand our knowledge of both mental maths and problem solving strategies.

Our focus in Literacy will be on writing ‘Instructions’ and this will be approached in a very fun and practical way with various art and cooking activities! We will continue to cover lots of grammar and punctuation through the term as well as reading and comprehension activities. Once again much of this will be linked to our Space topic.

We will continue our Spanish lessons with our tutor Montserrat and will be learning all about animals and more importantly ‘Food’...the best bit being that we get to sample some authentic Spanish cuisine! We really enjoy all the games and songs she teaches us. She makes Spanish a lot of fun! We will also continue to enjoy our weekly PE sessions with our brilliant IFA sports coach and we’ll soon be starting our weekly swimming lessons, so we really are an active bunch! It is going to be another busy but fun term!

This term will bring lots of fun activities and happy memories, with World Book day, Pancake day, St. Patricks day, Easter and many more events to look forward to!
