Welcome to P4C with Miss CharlesonΒ 

Hello P4C and Parents πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

Below is a summary of learning for our class for Term 2 😊

In term 2 our topic is COP26 with the focus being on the climate summit which is being held in Glasgow this November. In P4 we will explore different kinds of energy and how this affects climate change in our world. We will also explore a variety of different ways in which we can help look after our planet. The children will get an opportunity this term to participate in Outdoor Learning sessions and these will be focused on looking after our school environment and our local community 🌳🌎

In literacy we are focusing on reading to improve fluency, expression and understanding. We will learn a variety of decoding strategies to help with reading independently. Throughout the term we will learn about different types of questions based on novels and texts we read. We will also participate in a variety of comprehension activities to demonstrate understanding when reading. In writing, we will focus on instructional writing. We will also continue to learn the tools for writing skills in order to write independently πŸ“šπŸ“

In numeracy, our focus will be on learning different strategies to help add, subtract and multiply numbers. Children should practise their times tables regularly – we are currently working on the 2, 5&10 times tables. We will also be learning about money, focusing on adding amounts and giving change πŸ”’πŸ’·
