Finding our way around Scotland

We used our map reading skills in p4B today to work out where various towns, cities and islands are located across Scotland. We used the first map to record where we thought they were and then used an atlas to check if we were correct before completing a second map drawing.

A Busy Day!

As well as our usual science, writing and maths lessons today we also learned to compose and perform our own music. As if that wasn't enough we then went on a Google expedition to Rome, Space, The Great Barrier Reef and more! It's safe to say today was a very busy one.

Roman posters

To finish off our roman project the boys and girls in p4b all did some research about a specific area of roman life. They then created individual posters showing what they learned. Finally we peer assessed each other's work. I was super impressed with everyone's efforts. Great work guys :)
