Welcome to our P4/5 Page, here are some of the fun activities we have been doing.....

April in primary 4 and 5.


This month in Literacy lessons the pupils will be very busy

The P4 and P5 will be writing reports based on animals.

The pupils will write poems using strong adjectives to describing the settings and characters within the poems. The children will then use various ICT packages and the I-pads to bring these poems to life and to a larger audience.

The pupils will identify words with contractions like we’ve should’ve etc.

The pupils will continue to develop their spelling skills. Primary 5 pupils will be using common suffixes like –ness and less.

This term in world around us lessons Primary 4 and 5 have been learning all about Northern Ireland! We are looking at the different counties, towns that the country has. Later In the term we will be having Shared Education lessons with our friends in Newcastle Primary School.

Fables….Creating a background!

This term in our class we have been reading lots of different fables. The Lion and the mouse is one of our favourites. We have been writing our own fables and turining them into animations. We have been creating jungle backgrounds for our fables.

Co-ordinates….what’s the point?

This week in number time Primary 4 and 5 have been working finding out all about Co-ordinates. Primary 4 where using co-ordinates where you had a letter and a number. Primary 5 pupils had Co-ordinates which contained two numbers. It was important for them to rememeber the rule…along the garden and then up the path. Co-ordinates are fun because you can play games like battleships and the wonderful Billy Bug

Working out the perimeter!

This week in number time Primary 4 and 5 have been working out how to calculate the perimeter of an object. The best fun was when we got to draw around books on our table! We then had to use a ruler to measure each line and add the four sides up. This give us the perimeter. We just hope our new caretaker doesn’t mind cleaning the black marker off our desks!

Data Handling

This term in numeracy we have been focusing on data handling. We have been creating tally charts to collect information on lots of different topics. This week we were seeing which types of transport passes our school. It was very cold outside and not a lot of cars passed but it was great fun!

 Animal magic.

We having been learning about animals this term in the World Around Us. It has been great fun sorting the animals into their different groups. We really loved the reptiles and Tyler got to hold the snake!
