Friday 17th November:
Book Week and Anti-Bullying Week
This week Primary 4 have been hard at work taking part in Scottish Book Week and Anti-Bullying Week. The Carrick Knowe Primary School theme for these events is one of our school values, respect.
Each class has had a special book to focus on this week, P4a have been reading Saving the Butterfly by Helen Cooper and P4b have been reading I’m Sticking With You by Smriti Halls. In our literacy activities we have been working on special reading task maps that focus on these books and we’ve been using our drama skills to retell the stories and give advice to the characters. We’ve been so impressed by everyone’s hard work and enthusiasm!
We have had several reading slots and have enjoyed our own choice of reading material.

P4 in September!
P4 have been busy with all sorts of exciting learning this term. Our trip to the book festival to meet the editors of the Beano was brilliant, we got lots of useful tips about creating our own comics and we’ve used them back in the classroom to make some hilarious comics. In Maths we have been working hard on column addition and now we’re getting starting with data handling. We’ve also been learning about the weather and creating our own tools to record the weather, like wind-socks. Here are a few snapshots of some of the things we’ve been up to so far this term.
Friday 16th September:
Last school year, we were very lucky to receive a grant from Tesco’s for Outdoor Learning equipment. Lots of different things were purchased, including many pairs of waterproof trousers. The other day we had torrential rain, so P4B put on the new trousers and tested them out. Despite the weather, the trousers kept us all dry and happy.

Welcome to P4!
We have had a great start to Primary 4.
It has been lovely getting to know our new classes and we are so impressed with how well everyone is settling in. Here are a few photos of what we have been up to and please do keep an eye in our blog where you will find snapshots of our learning in Primary 4!
And here’s P4B …
Looking forward to an exciting year of learning.
