We have started our new topic and we are learning about Energy. We have been learning about all the different types of energy; wind, solar, hydro, electric, petrol, kinetic, nuclear, chemical, heat, muscular, and potential energy. We are learning how energy changes from one kind to another. We will also be finding out how energy is created and we are hoping to try making some wind turbines in class.
In our Maths work we are learning about money. We are learning to add up coins, working out change and show different ways to make small sums of money. We have a shop set up in the class and we are using it to help us give the right change.
All P4’s are taking part in national assessments this month. We have to do 3 tests – Numeracy, Reading and Writing. All P4 children in Scotland are taking the same test and the results will help us know how we are getting on compared to other schools.
Just a reminder about Accelerated Reader. We would like children to be completing a book every couple of weeks please.
