Welcome to Primary 4 2022!

Meet our P4 Team….

Teacher: Miss Devlin

SEN 1:1: Miss Dickson 

We are all so pleased to have the children back with us in school! They’ve made a super start to the school year, settling quickly back into the new routines, and we have lots of exciting learning to look forward to!

The learning in P4 is planned around our 6-weekly topics which encourage the children to explore the world in which they live while developing, and building upon, their Literacy and Numeracy skills.

Here in P4 we take pride in our learning. We are resilient and motivated. We always aim to try our best and above all we show kindness in our actions towards others!

The P4 staff are here to support your child both academically and emotionally. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you, or your child, have any concerns/worries about school. You can message us through our Class Dojo platform and we will endeavour to respond to your messages between the hours of 8:30-4pm (excluding teaching time).

Make sure to stay tuned to see what the children get up to over the coming year, we have so much to show you!
