Picasso P4a


Primary 4a have been learning how to draw self-portraits.  We have been looking closely at the artist Picasso and how we could create an image in his unique style.  We tried to create a self-portrait and side profile in one image.  We used chalks and developed our skills on blending to create a desired effect.  We were particularly focussing on using hot and cold colours to create a contrasting image.

Yes or No

Whilst reading our class novel ‘The Fish in Room 11’ we were asked to sort statements under the headings YES or No.  If we believed the statement was true we added it to the YES pile or if we disagreed with the statement we put it into the NO pile.  We had to justify our opinion by using evidence from the story.



Strategies for Addition and Subtraction

In numeracy we are practising how to use the ‘Jump Strategy’, ‘Over-Jump Strategy’ and ‘Jump to the Decuple’ to solve word problems.  We have been practising rounding numbers to the nearest ten or hundred to help us with these strategies.


We are learning to say the alphabet in French.  We asked a partner what their name was and how to spell it.
