Our first week in P.4
We had a busy first week in Primary 4, learning new routines and remembering how to look after our belongings. We created a class charter after sharing our ideas in groups. We found out about nouns and played a game on the IWB about them. We also used our numeracy strategy of 'trial and error' to make a repeating pattern.
On Tuesday 11th September we went on a minibeast hunt. We were amazed at how many insects and bugs we saw. We even found quite a few frogs!
We have been working hard at counting forwards and backwards, exploring hundred, ten and unit numbers and solving problems through our'trial and improvement' strategy.
We had a fabulous visit from The Belfast Zoo in October. We got to see many different animals and bugs. We even got to hold and stroke some of them. have a look.
We have been learning that we can use drawings to help us when we are working out number problems. We call these Bar Models. We have also been using other equipment when we need it to help us.
November - here we are busy again, learning about adding with exchange, rounding numbers, making circuits and doing many other fun things.
'Farm to Fork' - sorting foods into animal or plant.
