Term 2

2018-19

 

Welcome back to Primary 7B, I hope you all had a lovely October  holiday and are ready to embrace Term 2 with the same attitude that proved successful in Term 1.   

 

This term in Numeracy and Mathematics we are going to be looking at ‘Money’ which will link into our Enterprise project of ‘Event Management’ this term.  The boys and girls are looking forward to organising and facilitating the Christmas parties. The pupils of P7B will be learning about an awareness of money and how it is used, coins and notes, exchanging money for goods, money calculations, understanding money in the digital world, understanding risks and rewards and understanding the impact of financial decisions.  

 

This term in Language and Literacy we will continue to read our whole class novel called ‘ The Garbage King’ by Elizabeth Laird.  In addition to this, reading will also be heard weekly in a group and also individually through ‘ Fluency Tutor’ which is linked to our Google Classrooms.  For spelling we will be learning spelling rules. Each week we will learn a new spelling rule and investigate/learn words which are linked to this rule. In grammar we are going to be strengthening our knowledge and practise the use of different pieces of punctuation for example the semi- colon and parenthesis.  In writing we are going to be learning how to write poetry, instructions and diary entries.

 

Miss Leitch, from Hazlehead Academy, will be taking the class on a Tuesday afternoon for Science . They will be learning about renewable energy this term.

 

In RME this term we will be furthering our knowledge of Christianity and the Christmas Story.

 

Physical Education will be taught twice a week by Mrs Boyd on a Monday and Mr Friel, the PE Specialist,at a new slot on a Friday.  Please ensure that you have a change of clothes/ shoes and all jewellery is removed prior to the lesson in accordance with Aberdeen City Council Policy.  

 

In Digital Technologies this term we will be exploring how to use the different application of  Google Classrooms. For example, Google Sheets, Google Forms, Google Slides and Google Docs which will support us with our events management topic.
