Welcome to Primary 4

Dear Parent / Carer,


Welcome back to a new school year at Cuiken Primary. On a personal note, I am delighted to be back teaching in the school and am very excited to be working with Primary 4 this year. I look forward to meeting those of you who are able to attend our ‘Meet the Staff’ evening on Tuesday 9th September, for 6:30pm.


Homework will be issued, in due course, on a weekly basis. Children will collect their homework on a Monday morning and should return it on Thursday. Homework will normally have maths/numeracy and literacy elements and may also include work toward a current topic.


Primary 4 will be doing a range of engaging interdisciplinary topic work through the year. Our first focus will be ‘Castles’ and the children are encouraged to bring any relevant materials they might like to share with their peers.


Our PE slots this year will be on a Tuesday and a Thursday each week. Children should have a full change of kit, comprising, shorts, shoes and a plain t-shirt to take part in PE lessons. Primary 4 will also be taking part in swimming lessons this year and more information will be provided on the details of this in due course.


I would like to extend my welcome to all the children in Primary 4 and should you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
