🌟 Star of the week 8/6/18
Our topic in Term 1A is Autumn. We will learn about what happens during this season e.g colour change of leaves, the two types of trees (deciduous and evergreen) and harvest We will go for a walk around Banbridge and do lots of exciting craft. Our first art session involved painting the famous Van Gogh 'Sunflowers'. I'm sure you'll agree they are equally as good! See some pictures below.
We all enjoyed a lovely autumn walk in Solitude Park. We were able to name quite a few of the trees by looking at the shape of their leaves and fruit. We saw lots of signs of autumn.
The P4 class have been learning about weight (g and kg). They checked the weights on supermarket items and put them in order from lightest to heaviest.
The class took part in a practical lesson-they estimated and measured items around the classroom using the metre as a standard unit.
We are learning about Hundreds, Tens and Units. We were partitioning numbers and held them up to display the correct answer.
We enjoyed a practical and fun lesson about symmetry with Mrs Davidson.
