P4 are learning about weather. We are looking at different instruments to measure the weather and learning how to interpret weather forecasts. We are looking at unusual and severe weather around the world as well as weather around the U.K.
We really enjoyed writing letters to various visitors and school staff. Our visitors included Mr Branch, our crossing patrol man, a lady from the SPCA and our school janitor. Thanks to parents for helping our children to learn their addresses. We are now learning to write newspaper reports about the weather.
Our children have been learning to tell the time using both analogue and digital clocks. We are looking forward to the visit from the Dogs Trust. We will be practising budgeting for a dog to help us to understand the costs and responsibilities of looking after an animal. We will also be learning about money.
Our Visible Learning is going well and our children are displaying a good knowledge and understanding of the principles involved.
We are looking forward to next term.

What successfully learners!
