Primary 3/4 News

Thesaurus work!

We were learning how to use a thesaurus in order to up-level our writing last week.

We had to use lots of skills in order to do this, we had to know the alphabet, use our skimming and scanning strategies and decide with our partners if the new word (the synonym) made sense in the sentence.

We worked well with our partners and then shared our new sentences with the class.

Tha Gàidhlig againn! P3/4

Tha P4 ag ionnsachadh beagan Gàidhlig.
P4 are learning a little bit of Gaelic.
Bha sinn a’ leabhadh sgeulachd an-duigh mu dheidhinn cailleach agus cearc – abair sgeulachd!
We were reading a story today about an old lady and a chicken – what a story!
I wonder if any of the P4s can remember the Gaelic word for… egg, dog, butter or up and down?

Digital Leaders

Our Digital Leaders were busy during Citizenship Group time this week accessing “google classroom”. All ready to share digital knowledge with their peers back in their classes.

Meet Jefferson! 🦴

Thank you so much to Harry and his family for bringing their skeleton, ‘Jefferson’ to school to help us with our study of the human body. 🦴
We have been having lots of fun with him and we will learn lots from looking at his bones, and even inside his skull! 💀 Thank you so much! 😊

Ready, steady, cook!

Some of our superstars in P3/4 made us a delicious meal last week with the help of Mrs Neill in ‘The Creation Station’.

They worked really hard to make fresh tagliatelle and tomato sauce! Then they came back to class and explained their recipe and method and then served us their scrummy dish with grated mozzarella on top! What a treat!
There were a few members of our class who were convinced they didn’t like pasta but were really brave and gave it a go and ended up loving it!! Look at all those clean bowls!
