P3/4 Lockdown Blog – Mrs MacLennan


Friday 26th June:

We made it!

Good morning P3/4! Today is the final day of term and time to say goodbye. It has been a very memorable end to the year. Mrs McCormack and I are so very proud of all that you have learned and the brilliant young people that you have become. All of your new teachers are very lucky to have you in their class next year.

If you look at your Learning Journals, then I’ve sent you the word art to print out as a keepsake for our P3/4 year. I have made an elephant, partly because they are my favourite animals and partly because elephants never forget and this is a school year that we certainly won’t forget! I also made a cat version, just because it’s a cat!

Bob and I hope you have a lovely holiday and we look forward to seeing you after summer. Have a safe and fun holiday everyone. I tried to persuade the cats to be in the photo but they were too busy chasing the birds in the garden!

Keep being brilliant P3/4 and remember that you’re all my favourite!

Here’s my last summer themed joke of this blog…ever!

What is grey, has 4 legs, a trunk and a tail?

A mouse on holiday!

Thursday 25th June:

And for those staying with me in P4A next year, here is a video message from… ME!

For those going into P4B next year, here is a video message from your new teacher – Mrs Bennett!

And finally, for those going into P5A next year, here is a video message (or two!) from your new teachers – Mrs Mitchell and Ms Anderson!

Wednesday 24th June:

Quiz Time!

It’s time for the quiz of the year! Mr Harper and I have created a multiple choice quiz which has questions about our time in P3/4 and P4. You’ll need to read each question carefully as we’ve tried to catch you out!

To have a turn, click on the link, choose your answers and then click submit at the end. Mr Harper and I will see which class gets the most correct answers. Go Team P3/4! 🙂


Finally, a wee message from Miss Chuwen…

Hi everyone,
I can’t believe it is summer already!! It’s been great working with you all and getting to know you during your RCCT slots this year. We have had lots of fun playing games and learning together (even if it did take me a while to learn all your names!). I’ve also loved taking over your blogs during the lockdown and thoroughly enjoyed all the creative ideas and work you’ve sent me. 
I hope you all have a lovely summer holiday. It might not be like the summers you are used to but I hope you use it as a chance to relax and have lots of fun! 
See you in August!
Miss Chuwen 

What do you call cheese that’s not yours?

It’s the Final Countdown…

Last week your transition passport should have been delivered through your door. If you haven’t already, open the envelope and begin the ‘All About Me’ page and read the messages written by the teachers. You will have a message from me and from your new teacher.

My new favourite author, Charlie Mackesy, shared this image this week and I thought about how proud you have all made me throughout P3/4.

I remember…

To get started on your transition grid you might want to think back about some of your favourite times from P3/4. Was it our trip to Dynamic Earth or taking part in our animal adaptation science experiments? Maybe it was meeting Pudsey or hunting for bugs in the P7 garden? Our school year has ended in an odd way but it is good to spend some time thinking about all that we’d done and learned together. Here are some of my photo highlights!

There’s a brand new Sumdog challenge today, this one is a huge mix of different questions from all the different maths learning we’ve explored in P3/4. It lasts until Wednesday morning so give it your best shot!

Even though there’s no reading task mat this week you should still be keeping going with reading at home. If you can’t find a new book to read, try listening to one on https://stories.audible.com/start-listen or find a new book on https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/. Our class username and password for Oxford Owl is on the previous learning grids.

Where do polar bears keep their money?

In a snow bank!

Have a brilliant last week of term P3/4, keep being brilliant!
