Welcome to P4!

We have all had a great Christmas break and are back keen to learn, develop and have fun together!Our new topic this term is ‘Pirates’ and that will keep us busy finding out all about piracy- their culture and ways of life; what they eat, where they sleep and their jobs and hobbies. We will study pirate ships and all the different parts and how they are used and where pirates sailed. We will learn about famous pirates and talk about the differences between modern pirates and pirates from the past.

During this topic we will be doing lots of constructing; creating pirate props and ships, lots of experimenting; seeing which materials float and sink to make the best ship and hunting for treasure; testing for magnetic/non-magnetic materials and researching to find out all there is to know about pirates. Another highlight of this topic will be our Pirate party where P4 will dress up as Pirates, eat pirate-themed food and enjoy pirate hobbies like dancing the jig and singing. I have no doubt the children will really enjoy this topic!

Thank you for supporting your child with their learning at home and please continue to do so as much as possible, as this really does make a difference! Also thank you for your encouragement in mathletics, they have all been working so hard on it. I’m sure you have heard by now that our class won the school mathletics challenge for October, November and December and will be receiving their ‘treat day’ in January. So all in all another busy term ahead.
