Christmas Card Delivery
P4, P4/5 and P5 have been charged with the task of delivering Christmas cards throughout the school, this year. The special teams collect the post from the Post box, stamp each envelope, then deliver them to the happy children.
Christmas Craft Fair
P4s have been getting crafty in the lead up to Christmas. They have transformed their socks into fantastic snowmen, which they hope to sell at the Fair on Friday 7th December.
'I'm a Healthy Kid, get me out of here!'
In November, Healthy Kidz presented an 'I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here'-themed session. The children were challenged to a 'snake pit', a 'dead spider carry' and a 'flaming hoop jump' amongst other stations.
P4C have really been getting into shape with their Mathletics, stacking up lots of points with lots of hours worth of Numeracy challenges. Congratulations to Mila, who won the first Silver Certificate in the class.
On the Job
On Thursday 29th November, Drumgor's Building Supervisor Joe visited P4 and demonstrated different building tools. This demonstration was part of the P4's Home Sweet Home topic.
Children in Need 2018
On Friday 16th November all pupils came to school in non-uniform and brought a donation for Children in Need. Thank you everyone.
Put into groups of three, P4 became the main characters of 'The Last Noo-Noo'. Granny wanted mum to be firmer with Marlon, mum tried to reason with Marlon, but Marlon would NOT get rid of his Noo-Noo!
In September, the class worked on some Claude Monet-inspired art. They drew houses and homes by a waterfront, before finishing them off with a reflection. After they had finished, P4 did a 'Gallery Walk', where they analysed each other's work.
For the topic, Home Sweet Home, the children created cover posters using Textease Studio.
Best laid plans
As part of their, 'Home Sweet Home' topic, P4 studied building plans. They learnt about the terms 'key' and 'bird's-eye view'. They then drew a plan of a room from their home.
Each Thursday, the boys and girls are put through their paces with Healthy Kidz, improving their stamina, speed, strength, balance and flexibility.
Fun with characters
P4 have been reading Horrid Henry and considering what kind of character he is. In his 'Perfect Day', Henry decides to try being pleasant for a change. We thought of questions we'd like to ask him, then we interviewed him in a 'Chat Show'.
On Wednesday 19th September, P4 elected their Eco representatives. Having designed an Eco Poster, each pupil described what they'd drawn or written. They then did a gallery walk before the vote.
P4s work with numbers every day. They enjoy learning actively and getting their brains into action with a bit of fun, like finding sums in a treasure hunt or working with Numicon.
School Council Elections
On Tuesday 11th September, P4 held their School Council election. Each pupil read their 'manifesto' to the class, then everyone voted for one boy and one girl. Well done to Evie and Fionn who will represent P4 on Council.
Introduction to Home Sweet Home
P4's topic in Term 1 is 'Home Sweet Home'. At the beginning of September, the boys and girls did a carousel activity, where they wrote questions they would like the answer to. The areas within the topic are: Homes being built, Homes in the Past, Homes around the World, Energy in the Home and Craigavon- where we live.
