P4 Newsletter 27/09/16

Hi all,

Just a little update about some things going on in class just now.


Our new topic is Vikings! We are going to be learning about the past and how to use evidence to tell us about it. We are going to be looking at facts and theories and discussing the evidence that we have to support the fact we are learning. We will be identifying evidence that is reliable and evidence that is not.

If anyone feels that they can help in anyway with this topic, please don’t hesitate to be in touch!


The children are excited about the new topic and to support their learning I have organised a trip to the National Museum of Scotland. The children will watch a play and have a chance to explore the museum and some artifacts.

The trip is on the 6th of October from 10am-1:30pm and we are in the process of costing the trip. However, if anyone is available to help out on the day it would be much appreciated. Just let me know by note, in person or via the office.

Sponsored Triathalon

Luca in our class is taking part in a sponsored triathlon in support of Laila in P4.Luca is hoping that he can raise enough money for Laila and her family to have a nice treat now that she is feeling much more fit and well. He is taking part in his Triathlon on the 22nd of October, starting at Arthur’s seat in Edinburgh and then going onto the commonwealth pool.

Though in no way expected, if anyone wishes to sponsor Luca, you can have a chat with his mum Nicola in the playground.

I am sure that we are all wishing him well in this task and hope that he does his best in the event! Thank you Luca!

Classroom Helpers

I am really looking for a volunteer who might like to help me on a Tuesday morning. from 9:30-10:30 whilst we are spelling. This could be every second week if necessary.

If there is anyone who wished to help that could commit to a short block of visits it would be much appreciated!

As always if anyone has any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
