Class Novel

Our class novel this term is called, 'Vulgar the Viking and the Spooky School Trip!'

We are very excited to read through the novel together and we even completed a before reading novel study to predict events, characters and settings by just looking at the front cover.  We cannot wait to find out what really happens!



The P.E day for Primary Four this year is every Friday.  P.E shoes and the Dunclug t-shirt with P.E. bottoms are needed every Friday.  


European Language Day 2023

Tuesday 26th September was European Language Day! In P4 we had an amazing time listening to and exploring the different languages, we even attempted to say, 'hello' in 24 European Languages! This led on to us completing a Language Tree to record the different ways to say, 'hello.'

We also had a special visitor, Mrs Foster the P5 teacher, who was dressed in a traditional Spanish outfit to teach us some basic Spanish words, we enjoyed every minute of this lesson!

Anti-Bullying Week 2023

It was Anti-Bullying week Monday 13th November to Friday 17th November 2023.  We explored and learnt how to be kind to one another, what makes a positive friendship, what is bullying, discussed the people we can reach out to and what to do if we have any concerns or worries, how to treat others, celebrated ways in which we are different etc.  We created a 'reaching out' hand and listed on each finger the adults we can talk to if we have any concerns or worries around bullying.  Check out the pictures below.

Little Picassos in P4!

We studied the artist Pablo Picasso as part of our art time.  We found out interesting facts on him and his life as well as studying and talking about his art work, we also completed an artist study as part of our writing time.  We were excited to explore his Cubism style in portraits.  This inspired us to create our own self portraits using the Cubism technique.  Check out the amazing masterpieces below!
