We have been  learning all about the Chinese New Year. The children have been busy making beautiful lanterns, and drawing pandas, dragons and Willow Pattern plates.

Merry Christmas Everyone from P4ND  

We have really enjoyed preparing for Christmas in school through activities in literacy, drama, art, music, RE and maths.  


Go to our school website and select 'Gallery' and follow the menu to 'Video Album'.  When you select 'Video Centre' you will see special Christmas videos from all of our school classes. 


Look out especially for our two videos:

'Merry Christmas Everyone' song and 'Christmas Blessings'  

Thank you to the children who took part so enthusiastically and helped us to present you with the true meaning of Christmas.  Thank you to the parents who have made contributions to Children's Cancer Fund in lieu of teacher presents this year.  We greatly appreciate your generosity as we help raise much needed funds for this very worthy and important charity. 

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Christmas from P4ND

😃Anti-bullying Week😁

We wore odd socks to show that even though we all look different and like different things, we can be great friends in P4 as we respect and help each other.  This is what anti-bullying week is all about. We had great fun making this video and did it in one take!

          School in the Past


This term we are learning what it would have been like to go to school many years ago. Here are a few pictures from when Abercorn was built and opened.  The children were excited to see that the outside of our building is largely the same but the blackboards and cane are long gone! Encourage the children to talk to older relatives about what school was like for them.  It is a great opportunity to pass on a piece of history. We are learning to play games from the past such as Ludo, Dominoes and Snakes and Ladders as well as popular card games which have been around for a long time such as Donkey and Happy Families.  

For homework, P4 thought about what their dream playground would look like and designed it. Great ideas everyone. Which one is your favourite? Have a look at all the pictures in the slide show.

We love Golden Time

Everyone works hard all week to keep all of their Golden Time. It is fun to choose activities to do with some friends during Golden Time on Friday afternoons.

😁👍Our class reward jar is full. Everyone has worked hard and the class chose to have extra playtime in the forest area in our school grounds🍃


Our WAU topic in Term 1A is Autumn. We will be learning about what happens during this season eg. leaves are changing colour and farmers are busy harvesting crops. We will look at the two types of trees - deciduous and evergreen. We will try to identify trees from the shapes of their leaves and their fruit. 

                                   🍁🍂ABERCORN AUTUMN WATCH🍂🍁

The class have been observing the changes to the trees in our school grounds since September. Every week we have gone to look at oak, ash, sweet chestnut 🌳  and evergreen trees🌲 There has been so much to see and do outside. 

Look at our beautiful sunflowers. We have been trying to copy Van Gogh’s famous paintings of sunflowers 🌻

Here are some of our finished paintings. We are very proud of them.

We had great fun making our own scarecrow pictures.

In our forest area we have been collecting cones, leaves and sticks and using them to make pictures. We have also been identifying trees in our school grounds.

We enjoyed learning about the different parts of trees and the jobs that they do.
We enjoyed our daily mile!

In P4 we are developing a positive growth mind set



We had to design a costume for a scarecrow. We had a set amount of money to spend and also had to work out change. We had lots of different clothes to choose from.  smiley
