Happy New Year from P4/5!
*
We have been working very hard in 2018 already. Our new mental maths strategy is partitioning and we love playing 'Step and Touch' to help us practice it. We also enjoy 'Cowboy Maths' as it helps us learn our times tables in a fun way.

We have been applying our mathematical skills in a baking, problem solving activity. Employing our knowledge of taught concepts such as solving 2 step word problems, identifying patterns in tricky number sequences and using our knowledge of time facts. We worked in teams to identify the missing measurements needed for our class baking. Each team made Amazon Rainforest buns, inspired by our World Around Us topic.

P4/5 have just started Tag Rugby sessions with our coach Gary and already we have learned lots of new skills. Who knew school could be such fun!

Busy, busy, busy ......

We have been very busy this year already and have had lots of fun learning about our new topics.

As a whole school we have been working hard to improve our mental maths skills and we have really enjoyed using our 'squashies' to count on and back.

In literacy we have been learning how to write instructions so we did a little bit of cookery to help us write detailed instructions. It was Yummy!

Our World Around Us topic this term is 'Life in Egyptian Times' and we have had fun making Egyptian Death Masks and finding out what life was like a very long time again.

We have been enjoying IFA football lessons with Daniel and swimming lessons at the amphitheatre.

We have also been on several visits to Carrickfergus Library to find out how to use the library properly and about all the exciting activities that take place there such as Lego Club and Minecraft.

Phew! hard to believe we have only been back at school for 5 weeks.
