Christmas Tree Technology by Emilia P.4a

We worked in groups to make a Christmas tree out of recycled materials. In my group was Isla, Sophia and me, Emilia.

The materials my group used were tissue paper, cardboard boxes, paper and plastic bottles.

I helped my group by making tissue paper flowers and getting ideas and fixing problems.

We decorated the tree with tissue paper flowers, cardboard chocolates and a yellow star with a blue spot in the middle.

My group worked nicely together but next time we could make it better by listening more to each other.

I enjoyed making the tree because I always had a job.

Topic Report by Sandy P.4a

P.4 did a topic about Houses and Homes. First we learned about different types of homes like a flat or terraced. My house is a terraced house.

Then we found out about castles. I learned that the first type of castles are motte and bailey castles and they were built by the Normans.

Next we learned about crofts and crannogs. I learned that a croft is not a house but a piece of land and the people who lived on the croft were called crofters.

We went on a trip to Edinburgh Castle and I liked seeing the prisons of war and Mons Meg the biggest canon in Scotland.

What I enjoyed about this topic was probably the trip to Edinburgh Castle.

A busy week for P4B

Primary 4B

This week we continued to learn how to use Book Creator. We began to write about the Nativity story and we wrote about our class talks. We spoke into the i -pads and our words appeared on the screen. It was a bit difficult and funny because the i-pad sometimes mistook what we said and the stories were odd.

We have been listening to the Jesse Tree story each day. It tells us lots of different stories from the bible. We like it because the characters are sometimes funny and the old man in the story was grumpy at the beginning but is now more cheery.

Over the last few weeks, we have been learning lots of Christmas carols and a couple of Christmas songs. We did this because we were going to sing at different churches to elderly people. We sang really well and got better each time we sang to different people. BUT the best of all was when we sang to our families and to the school at assembly. We also explained about different Christmas traditions. People that heard us sing said that we sang clearly, looked happy and that they really enjoyed listening to us. We were tired by the end of the week.

At each place where we sang, people were very kind and gave us something to eat and drink.

Our favourite song was Frosty the Snowman.

P4B working hard

Last week P4 were very busy. We began the week by creating cold and wintry pictures. Mrs Moscrop showed us lots of cold wintry pictures to help to give us ideas for our own pictures. We used dark colours to create a background using water colours. After the paint dried, we added lots of details to the landscapes using oil pastels. We were very pleased with our creations.

We have also been preparing for singing carols at the Baptist church. We are also getting ready for our Christmas Joy assembly where we will sing carols and tell about the traditions of Christmas. We are very excited to go and sing to some people.

We feel that we have worked hard at everything this week.

P.S. we are super excited that it is very near to Christmas
