Welcome to P4.

P4 Information

Welcome back everyone! I hope that you had a nice holiday and are settling back into the school routine easily.

I thought I would provide you with some current information about timetable and topic organisation, homework and swimming.

Timetable Information

Music- The children have music on a Monday morning with Mrs Callaghan and will come into school from the lines first.

P.E.- Our pre-planned P.E. days are Wednesday (with me) and Thursday with Mrs Duncan. I think everyone now has a P.E. kit in school but if not can I remind you to provide one for those days.

Class Novel- By popular demand I am reading Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone to the class after breaks.

Topic- For the next week we are learning about Pirates and Mapping. Linked to survival on a desert island a member of the Outdoor Learning Team is coming on Monday 4th September to assist us in the building of Outdoor Shelters.


Due to the fact that the building of the new leisure center is not yet complete swimming will begin on the 12th of September. Children will need a packed lunch that day- a letter with follow.

The children should bring a swimming  costume/trunks a towel and goggles. There is no need to pay for a locker and we won’t be using hairdryers or vending machines.


Homework in P4 will be distributed on a Tuesday and should be returned on  a Monday.

There will always be reading and spelling and initially (starting from next week) the children will be asked to revise their learn its. More numeracy homework may be handed out as and when additional numeracy support is needed.

Tomorrow (Tuesday 29th) I will give everyone a printed copy of the spelling chart and children will be expected to write what is required in their jotters.

There will be a copy on the Website, posted by 4pm on Tuesday.

Any worksheets that are required will be given and any further copies will either be available from the website (if possible) or from me.

Primary 1 Homework

Homework will be given out Monday to Thursday – I will keep the homework bags on Fridays to prepare for the following week.

Your child has been given a red book for their phonic homework. I will be teaching three sounds per week in a block of six sounds. Please only complete one sound per night: The homework consists of learning the correct letter formation for the sound and some colouring to help with pencil control.

When doing the homework please feel free to play games involving the sound we are learning e.g. hunt for something beginning with the sound, earning points if you hear the sound etc.

Your child has been given a reading book. These books are wordless but they have a printed extended story for you to read with your child. There are also questions for you to ask. This is an important part of the reading process, encouraging your child to look closely at the story and follow it. Listening to and looking for visual cues helps children to get better understanding of a story.

Monday 28.1.17
