Learnits- The Rules…

The children are asked the question on the learnits card on several occasions and if they answer correctly,  within about two seconds, they can have a tick. Once they have ten ticks they can throw the learnit away. Once the envelope is empty they can have some new learnits. You can keep the envelope at home until it needs refilled.

Don’t feel you have to do all of them at once. A few at a time is sufficient.

P4 Dates for your Diary- Assembly and Trip

Dear Parents, some dates for your diaries.

 Friday 19th May

The children have been working on an assembly and would love to show you their production. Please feel free to come and see the Loanhead Primary News Station report on the continents and climate on Friday the 19th May 11:45 in the large hall.

The children who have speaking roles will be bringing scripts home from next week to practise and may be asking for some items to wear. Please don’t go to any expense. I will send a note home about this when we have discussed what we may need.

Thursday 25th May

P4 will be visiting Dynamic Earth on Thursday the 25th of May from 9.30- approx 2pm. Packed lunches will be required.

We have been learning about the Continents, climates and the weather cycle and we will be learning more about this on the trip. We will also be taking part in a forces workshop on the day which is the new topic we are starting after the trip.

A letter with detailed costs will come out soon; I am still waiting on details of the buses and can’t calculate this till then.

The children have asked if they can bring some money for the shop and I have no issue with this, as there will be time but, I would ask that the amount they bring is limited to £3 per child.

I will also need a few parent helpers for this trip if you think you can help please return the slip at the bottom. If you can make the assembly also fill in a slip, this is to work out how many chairs etc are required.

Thanks, Mrs Cooney

P4 Homework 7-3-17

Homework 07/03/17

I must apologise for the lack of homework on the website last week- I totally forgot to put it on!

This Week

The Children have some assessment to undertake in class this week and have been bust revising Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday will be very tiring days for them and I expect they will be extra tired after school. Therefore, I have opted not to give any spelling homework out this week and reading to only a few of the groups. I am aware that most of the children don’t get to their homework till later in the week and I would like to take this extra burden from them this week and let them enjoy their clubs and daytrips etc.

P4 New Topic- Science- The Water Cycle

Hi All,

Our new topic is the weather cycle, water in our homes, environment and its impact on living things. We will also explore how water changes state. We will also try to make our own clouds.

Shortly after we will look at water on a global scale oceans, rivers, continents and different environments and people and the ways that water, lack of and abundance, affects them.

We are going to be taking part in some science experiments in relation to this topic and are looking for some resources:

  1. Empty jars of any size.
  2. A spare hairdryer or two.
  3. Grownups who would like to help on Wednesday or Thursday afternoons at about 1.15-2.30pm with some science experiments.
  4. Ice cube trays.

If you can help with any of these things send them in or come and see me anytime!

 

Thanks,

P4 and Mrs Cooney
