Primary 4/5

Hi everyone! P4/5 are very excited for the term ahead!  


Our class teacher this year is Mrs Stewart, and our classroom assistant is Miss E. Carmichael. We all love learning in a happy, caring environment and so far, we have really enjoyed getting to know more about each other through playing lots of games and sharing our summer adventures! 


Our new WAU topic for Term 1 is World War II. We are very excited to learn all about the events that led to Britain declaring war on Germany, key events that took place throughout the war, the Allied and Axis armed forces, and machines of the military. We will also research the lives of the ordinary people who faced the Blitz and coped with rationing and evacuation. Look out for photos of our fun activities and crafts/models on Facebook!  


Within our literacy lessons, we will be looking at various writing genres, including newspaper report writing and poetry. We will continue working on the four operations and learning our times table and number facts in numeracy and work on applying these skills to problem solving questions. We will also be looking at time, area and perimeter which means lots of practical and outdoor fun!  


Our WAU topics this year are: 

  • WW2  
  • Egyptians  
  • Water Cycle
