School in the Past
In Term 1B we will be learning all about how children used to be taught in school. We will gather some information from friends and family about their experiences in school. We will learn all about Abercorn Primary School in the past. We enjoyed a special visit from past principal Mr. Livingstone who told us what it was like to be a pupil here fifty years ago.
Activity Based Learning helps us learn more about ‘School in the Past’.
P4 are currently enjoying board games like Snakes and Ladders, Ludo, Dominos and the most popular one is the card game ‘Donkey’- but no one wants to be left holding the donkey! The drama corner is great fun where the children take turns to be the teacher (from the past) and teach their ‘class’ using a blackboard, slates, chalk and even the dunce’s hat. P4 have been patiently experimenting with copybook writing and enjoying time to research for facts from the ‘School in the Past’ topic books. ABL time also gives an opportunity to add a few more rows of stitches to our bookmarks.
🍂 AUTUMN 🍁
We had to work with a partner to choose how to dress our scarecrow. We had to be careful because we could only spend a certain amount of money. Then we had to work out our change. We had great fun!
Reading is really important in P4. We enjoy fiction and non-fiction books. Recently we got some new ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ books and they are very popular! Books by Roald Dahl are also in demand and the class loved having ‘The Twits’ read to them.
We visited Banbridge Library three times this term where we got to meet the staff and were shown how everything works in the library. Lots of the class are library members already and got to choose some new library books. There was also an ICT session and the children were told about using the library computers and how to access E-books at home.
