Topic Work

Below is an outline of what we will cover throughout Primary Four.  Exciting photographs to follow!

Mighty Me

The children will explore their senses through a range of activities in ABL (Activity Based Learning).  The children will be tasting, smelling, touching, hearing and seeing a variety of fantastic things.  It would be wonderful if the children had any related posters or books to bring in; we would love to see them!

Grand Designs

In Primary Four we will be exploring the materials used to build houses and the different types of houses.  During ABL the children will visit our Estate Agents and discover the people involved in the planning of and building of a house.  We are also keen to welcome visitors who have any interests or expertise in relation to building a house.

World War 2

The children are always extremely keen to start the War topic. Through ABL the children will explore rationing, what it would be like to be an evacuee, and what an air raid shelter looked like and was made of. Visitors are welcome to come and talk to the children about their personal or family war memories, please talk to your child's teacher!

Minibeasts

Our final topic of Primary Four is Minibeasts. Throughout our Minibeasts topic we will hunt for minibeasts, identify them and even design new ones!  Through ABL the children will build food chains and explore why minibeasts live in certain places.  The children will be given the opportunity to create an imaginary minibeast using a range of interesting materials and research different minibeasts for group work.
