On Friday 15th December, P4 joined Key Stage Two children, for a Christmas outing to Craigavon Omniplex. We watched the new nativity movie, 'The Star' and really enjoyed it. It was a relaxing way to round up a busy term.
Getting Crafty for Christmas
In preparation for Friends of Drumgor's annual Christmas Craft Fair, on Friday 15th December, P4 have been busy making 'sock snowmen' and Christmas cards. Creative minds, hard work and some time spent has resulted in super crafts. Well done boys and girls and thank you parents for sending in the socks!
'Lights, Camel, Action!'
From Monday 4th-Wednesday 6th December, P3s and P4s held daily performances of the school's annual Christmas production. This year, the play was a 'Strictly Come Dancing' theme on the Nativity Story. The actors, actresses, singers and dancers were fantastic. A huge well done to all of them.
Carroll Diagrams and Venn Diagrams
As part of our Data Handling work, P4s allocated photographs of themselves into the correct sections in Carroll Diagrams and Venn Diagrams, using various criteria. Good work everyone.
Children In Need
P4 joined the rest of the school on Friday 17 November, turning up in non-uniform and donating to Children In Need. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the total amount.
In November, P4 worked in groups to design, construct and paint model homes. The groups were allocated a type of house, e.g. semi-detached, and had to work together to plan and construct them. The finished models were put on display.
Where do you live?
P4s collected data from their classmates in November. They tallied the type of house each pupil lived in, before recording the information on a block graph. The data was then analysed.
Pupils finished term 1A on Friday 27th October. As usual, the occasion was marked with fancy dress. P4s had fun reading their own Worst Witch stories and completing their spooky houses artwork.
Primary 4 joined the rest of the school at Craigavon Baptist Church on Wednesday 25th October, to give thanks for the many blessings in our lives.
Primary 4 have been exploring the novels and short stories of Francesca Simon and Jill Murphy. They enjoyed Freeze Framing scenes from , 'The Worst Witch' and Hot Seating characters from Horrid Henry.
This Term, we are joining with our friends from Tullygally Primary School as part of the Shared Education programme. The theme of our partnership has been 'Diversity'. To that end, we have considered our identities, as well as the identities of others. We have appreciated how great it is when people from different backgrounds come together.
Every Thursday, we have been put through our paces with the 'Healthy Kids' programme. Our speed, strength and agility was tested at the start, and we hope that it will have improved when it's checked again at the end of the year.
We have been using Base 10 equipment to get to grips with Hundreds, Tens and Units.
In PDMU, we have been thinking about our identities. As well as considering our likes and dislikes, we painted A3 self-portraits, which were then displayed around the classroom.
Where We Live
Our topic in Term One has been 'Where We Live'. To begin, P4s participated in a carousel activity in which they considered the various aspects of the topic to come: building homes, homes around the world, homes in the past, Craigavon, and energy in the home.
A solid start to numeracy
In Primary 4 we are tackling ever bigger numbers and solving increasingly complicated problems. We have been counting with bean bags, adding and subtracting using dice, problem solving using grids and counters and sorting on the Interactive Board.
