Welcome to Primary 4/5 with Mrs Starrs and Miss Gallacher.


This term we are revising some of our learning from last year. We are learning new spelling patterns and are using active spelling strategies to become more fluent.
In reading, we are all improving our fluency and trying hard to use expression. We are using different reading skills to explore texts. We have been focusing on Summarising, Predicting and Connecting.
In writing, we have been exploring a variety of genres – imaginative, recounts and instructional writing. We are using our topics as a stimulus for our writing.


This term we have been looking at place value to 10,000 (P4) and 100, 000 (P5). We are becoming more confident in using large numbers in our work. We are also working on adding and subtracting 3 and 4 digit numbers. At the end of term, we will be looking at 2D and 3D shapes – names and properties.


Our topics in P4/5 this term are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Food.
We have been reading the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory book as a class and the children have been enjoying the activities so far. We have been designing our own chocolate bars, golden tickets and many more art based activities.
In our Food topic we have been learning about healthy eating and how to be safe and hygienic in the kitchen. We have been preparing and cooking healthy meals in school.
