Primary 4/5 - Mrs Collins




We have all been making beautiful shoes in class and you will have the opportunity to see them on our Shared Learning afternoon at the end of September.

‘I put sequins on my shoes. It was tricky to sew the straps on but I did it!’ Says Sarah

‘I liked making my shoes and the hardest part was to draw around my feet and try to get my shoes the same size,’ says Sebastian.

‘It was a bit hard sewing because we had to get the stitches tight not loose. Starting it off was also hard,’ says Casey.

‘I liked my Big Write about The Elves and The Shoemaker because it’s very active. We said the story first lots of times and that helped me,’ says Kayleigh.

‘I liked the story we read- ‘Funny Family’ because all the people in the story are different,’ says Olivia.

‘I liked writing my own story of The Elves and The Shoemaker because I think it’s really funny writing it and reading it over,’ says Mia.

‘I enjoyed Go Noodle. My favourite one is Cheerleader,’ says Faye.




P4-5 Blog

Just to say Seesaw is up and running in P4-5 now and everyone has posts. Please check it out and if you haven’t got access at home yet please log on as there is lots to see and read!

Some pupil comments from this week…..

Lewis: ‘I enjoyed maths because I could do it quickly and managed to get it all done on time.’

Sarah: ‘ I liked getting my French name. I am called Therese and I can tell everyone in the class my name and ask what their name is.’

Sebastian: ‘ I liked doing Beat That because I got 19 which is my highest score ever! ’

Kayleigh: ‘ I like Go Noodle because it helps us to exercise and I’m excited to do it at WAT with Mrs Collins. I will get to teach it to the others. I also like working on X3 table and my All about Me piece of writing, too.’

Mia: ‘ I like doing the stations. My favourite is the library.’

Olivia: ‘I like French bingo because it helps me learn numbers 1-12.’




Hello parents, carers and friends of P4-5. I’m looking forward to meeting many of you on Friday 17th at 2.30pm for Meet the Teacher.

In the meantime here is some information that you might find helpful-

Gym kit will be required every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure your child has shorts, T shirt and gym shoes or trainers on these days.

SUMDOG is up and running, with all login details in schoolbags so it can be accessed from home as well as school. A challenge of 200 numeracy questions has been set up for each child to complete by Sunday 19th August.

Our context this term is The Soft Shoe Shuffle. We have our very own Letham Shoe Shop in class and are looking for unusual shoes to display in the shop. If any parents or friends can help with this we’d be really grateful. All donated shoes will be well looked after and returned to their owners at the end of the topic. We will be reading lots of shoe stories in class and even designing and making our own shoes!

Communication through See Saw is new to me however I believe some of the P4-5s are experts!  With their help, I will have lots of posts on this very soon!

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns. I’m happy to help in any way I can and am looking forward to teaching your child this year.
