At OJ Sports we do really fun things like poison ball.  Last time at OJ we did the bleep test.  What you have to do is run from side to side when the beep goes.  You have to get to the other side before the beep goes.  Keep on doing it until you get tired.  I got 105.  OJ is on Wednesday after school (Rachel P4).

Primary 4 began using a new reading resource a few weeks ago.  It is called an SRA Reading Laboratory.  Nearly all the classes in school will be using an SRA box soon.  Although it was a little difficult at the beginning, overall everyone is really enjoying it.  Here are some of the things P4 said about the SRA box:

The SRA is a challenging box to do but you will get higher stages. Rhiannon

The questions make you think.  AdamIMG_2050

When I started the SRA box I found it very hard but that was because I didn’t understand but now I do.  Holly

The SRA box helps you read better.  Caitlyn

Now I know what to do I can do it properly without help.  Sophie
