Welcome to P4b With Mrs MacMillan

Summary of Learning

We are currently reading Matilda by Roald Dahl as a class and the children are enjoying listening to the story for pleasure.

In Term 1 our topic is The Vikings.  We are finding out who the Vikings are and where they came from. We will be exploring the traditions of the Vikings including where they lived, how they travelled and what they wear. We will be linking our topic directly to learning about the Govan Stones and we hope to visit the Govan Stones as a class this term.

In language we are focussing on reading to improve fluency, expression and understanding. We are using our imagination to write stories which we enjoy sharing with each other. We are also enjoying weekly class reading cafes where we have the chance to read and discuss books whilst having some juice and a biscuit!

In Maths, we are learning to add two and three-digit numbers together using lots of different taught strategies. We are also learning co-ordinates this term and how to read and use grid references.

All children – remember to practise times tables regularly. We have currently learned the 1,2,5 & 10 times tables.
