P4 Term 2 Literacy Homework Master Copy

A new grid for term 2 literacy homework has been sent home. This works in a similar way to the grid in term 1.

One side contains activities that you can use to practise your spelling words for the week. Please write the date that you have completed each activity to ensure all are covered throughout the term.

The reading side of the sheet has changed. This is because in term 2 we focus on comprehension. On a Monday, there will be a chance to choose a book from the school library. Please select 3 questions and answer these in your jotter. Books should be returned on a Thursday.

New Topic- My Body

We have started our new science and health and wellbeing topic, ‘My Body.’ We have discussed some key questions that we would like answered. We have included some of these:

How are sweat, saliva and tears made? Clara.

How do you learn that your body is allergic to something? Lewis

How come only some people can do backflips, is it something to do with the type of body you have? Maisie.

How come the acid in your stomach can burn through everything but it doesn’t burn your stomach? Alexander.

Why are some people smarter than others? Cameron.

Why does your stomach rumble when you are hungry? Winona.

Are tattoos unhealthy for you? Suffi

This week, we enjoyed learning about the organs in the body. We explored the positions of these and carried out some collaborative research into what they do. Please ask us to share this information with you! Enjoy having a look at some photographs from this week.


The work that we have created in collaboration with Fruitmarket Gallery will be on display as part of the ‘Colour Collective’ exhibition this weekend. Pupils will be attending the preview on Friday and can re-visit with families throughout the weekend to show off their work. Everyone is welcome as this is an exhibition that is open to the public.
