P4M

 

Primary 4 work (Mrs Mulligan's class and Miss Heron's P4s)

You have made it Primary 4! I am so proud of each and every one of you. You have worked hard and kept going through such strange circumstances the past few months. It has been a pleasure to read your lovely emails, see your great work and know that you are doing well. It was an absolute pleasure to even see some of you last Wednesday when collecting your reports! I will miss you all but can't wait to see you back in Rosetta for the new school year. Remember that you will meet me in the school playground and then I will take you to your new (or old) teacher :) Thank you for being such a brilliant class to teach - you are all very special and so talented so keep positive, keep smiling and enjoy your well deserved break this summer!

 

All my love,

 

Mrs Mulligan x

    • World Around Us – NEW TOPIC *PIRATES* (Ahoy swashbucklers of Primary 4! No landlubbers allowed)
    • Take some time to think of a cool pirate name (with amazing adjectives) and create your own pirate character. Imagine you are a pirate out at sea. What is your hair like? Are you short/tall/fat/thin? Think about your whole outfit, what are you wearing/holding etc? What weapons do you possess? Then think of your personality - what words would you use to describe what you are like as a pirate and why? Create a character profile: appearance & personality & include a creative picture. This will help you with work that is to come in your new pack.

    ...................................................................................................

    Welcome to Primary 4! Here are the lovely pupils in Mrs Mulligan's class...

     

     

     

    Our first topic was 'SUPERHEROES'. We loved having the opportunity to create our own superhero (name, identity, superpowers, arch-nemesis etc) and come up with an amazing superhero design! Here are some of the  activities we took part in:

     

    • Doodle Buddy a picture of ourselves on the iPads and transform it into a superhero
    • QR Code Hunt for superhero gadgets
    • Design and decorate superhero badges, cuffs, masks and plates
    • Create a superhero comic strip
    • Make superhero slime
    • Draw and paint a large superhero for our class display
    • Complete a superhero facts quiz 
    • Use percussion instruments and our voices to make sounds of a superhero moving
    • Dress up as a real superhero
    • Investigate which materials would be the most effective for a superhero cape
    • Think of our real-life superhero and discuss why they are special to us

     

    Superheroes in Primary 4

    We studied our class novel 'The owl who who was afraid of the dark'. Throughout each chapter we completed various comprehension activities including a character profile, in depth plot analysis, search for unfamiliar words in the dictionary, wrote an alternate story ending and completed a book review.

    Our current topic is 'Chocolate' which we are really enjoying! (especially when we get to eat chocolate too!) We have studied the history of chocolate and looked at the interesting process of how chocolate is made. We have researched facts and watched videos to show us more about the chocolate we love today. We have also been able to take part in a few chocolate investigations (white vs dark vs milk) (chocolate bar brands - cheap vs expensive) and (chocolate milkshake brands - cheap vs expensive).

     

    Our favourite part so far has been making Mayan Hot Chocolate! We followed instructions step-by-step and then tasted the beautiful hot chocolate drink for ourselves. We then wrote our own instructions to make sure we remembered the important steps in sequence.
