Welcome to Primary 4/3D with Mrs Dickson

Hello P43/D and Parents,

Below is a summary of learning for our class for Term 4.

In term 4 our topic is Materials. We will explore a variety of different materials throughout the term both indoors and outdoors. We will focus on predicting and experimenting with different materials through participating in weekly STEM group challenges. In art, we will focus on product design with a clear link to our materials topic.

In literacy we are focusing on comprehension skills to show our understanding of different pieces of text. We will work on answering and creating different kinds of questions to do this. We are currently reading Biscuit Barrel by Jacqueline Wilson. Throughout the term we will read different novels. In writing, we will focus on explanation writing. We will also participate in writing cafes where we will get the opportunity to write in a genre of our choice and share our writing with our peers. We will continue to focus on the tools for writing skills.

In numeracy, our focus will be on learning different strategies to help divide numbers. We will focus also on learning about fractions. Children should practise their times tables regularly in a variety of ways and use Sumdog at home. We will also be learning to tell the time this term.

Our class will have PE on Mondays and Wednesdays this term. Please come to school dressed for PE and remember to remove all jewellery for safety.

Homework is posted on Seesaw on a Monday. There will be 3 tasks posted and these should be completed and submitted on Seesaw by Friday.
