Hello from Primary 4T!
In Miss Tully’s class, Elodie told us that we were learning how to write and read ‘quarter to’ on an analogue and digital clock. We also revised ‘o’clock’, ‘half past’ and ‘quarter past’. We worked in stations to carry out a range of different activities. We played ‘time’ dominoes; ‘time’ snakes and ladders and ‘time’ match up. We also used the laptops to play some time games and completed different worksheets. In Mrs Henderson’s numeracy class, Fearghas told us that he was learning about subtraction. They used chimney sums to help them.
In PE, Sophie told us that Mrs Clapton taught us gymnastics. We had to do lots of activities. For example, we used ropes to swing on and climbed up the bars. We also worked on our balance skills with another 3 or 4 people in the class. Shaymaa told us that we were learning to develop basic movements used in football as well as learn how to dribble more effectively. We played small matches in groups of 4 or 5. We had to make sure we passed the ball three times before shooting at the goals. Afterwards, the whole class came together and played a class match.
In writing, Isla and Finlay told us that we watched a short clip of a film as a story starter. The film was called ‘The Tree’ and we had to imagine what the next part of the film was. With our groups, we had to think of a one sentence blurb for our story ‘The Tree’. We found it very useful to use the film as a stimulus for our stories as it can sometimes be tricky to start a story! At the end after we had finished our stories, we got to watch the end of the short film to find out what happened.
In French, Zoe and Fraser told us that we continued our lesson from last week. This lesson was focused on learning the French words for our clothes. The class had to pick an item of clothing and draw this piece of clothing on an A3 piece of paper. We had to include detail and the French word for the piece of clothing in big writing. Miss Tully is going to hang these up in the classroom on our “washing line”.
In literacy, we have focused on completing a range of VCOP challenges using our VCOP team (vocabulary, connectives, openers and punctuation). Amelie really enjoyed using descriptive words in her opening sentences. We went on to use adjectives to describe different pictures that Miss Tully put on the smart board.
Have a good weekend everyone.
