Welcome to our P4/5 Page,  It’s great to be back in school and here are some of the fun activities we have been doing this term.

September / October

What are we Learning this half term?


This month in Literacy lessons the pupils will be very busy catching up and speeding ahead!

The P4 and P5 pupils have been developing settings and using adjectives to create interesting short stories. We have been developing our sense of audience and have been writing specifically for the Primary 1 and 2 children. We have used the app Book Creator to develop talking story books and we have created our own illustrations. 

We will be following the BBC live lessons and have had the opportunity to hear authors discuss how they have developed characters.

In non fiction writing we have been focusing on reports and extracting interesting facts from pieces of writing.

Class novel for this term is “George’s Mavervellous Medicine


Pupils will-

Shape and Space

Learn about 2d shape.

Data Handling.

Display and read information from bar graphs.


Primary 4 pupils will be introduced to Telling the time in 5 minute intervals. 

Primary 5 pupils will be telling the time to the minute.


Primary 4 and 5 will be completing a lot of work on place value. We will use this place value knowledge to develop our adding and subtracting skills.


In Primary 4 and 5 we will be looking at life in the recent past. The pupils will have the opportunity to study the life of children during World war 2.


Keeping fit and healthy is so important. This term we will be taking part in the daily mile each day.
