Term One 2019/20

 

We would like to give you and your child a big welcome into Primary Four.  We hope our class have a fantastic year full of fun, but most importantly, full of learning.  Here is some information that you might like to know for the term ahead. 

Keep checking for new pictures of all the hard work and activities we will be doing in Room 17!

Homework 

In P4 we have spellings and tables to learn every week.  These are copied into our homework diaries on Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday nights.  These are then tested on a Friday along with dictation sentences containing some of our sound words from that week and previous weeks.  Please look through these tests with your child and enjoy celebrating their successes.

 

Each night the children will have reading. In P4 we work our way through reading schemes such as Treetops 10 and 11 and Big Cat 10, 11, 12 and 13. These books really test the children's understanding of language, not just their fluency, and hopefully you will enjoy reading them with your child.  We also read novels offering differing levels of difficulty throughout the year.  The children are encouraged to read for pleasure both at home and in school. 

 

In September, we have one written homework a week on a Tuesday night - either Literacy or Numeracy.  This will increase to two written homeworks a week in October - one of each subject.  The children will not be given anything they haven't covered in class at a higher level.
