Welcome to P4/5!
Summary of Learning
We are currently reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J K Rowling.
In Term 4 we are learning about the Solar System. We are finding out about the Sun, Moon, Earth and Stars and how time, days and years are related to these things. We are also going to learn about the planets in the solar system – their size, features, number of moons. We will also investigate space travel and scientific developments in this field.
In language we are focussing on fiction reading and writing. As a class we are continuing reading How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell and completing tasks based on this book. We will be writing setting, characters and using these to create a story. We will also be investigating poetry and writing our own poems.. We are also enjoying reading cafes where we have the chance to read and discuss books.
In Maths, the Primary 4s are learning to divide larger numbers using the ‘step’ method as well as learning about data handling and weight, volume and length. The Primary 5s are learning about angles (right, acute, obtuse and straight) and degrees, measuring length and weight and solving simple algebraic problems.
All children – remember to practise times tables regularly.
We have P.E. on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Homework is given out on a Monday and should be returned on the Thursday.
Learning Journeys will go home on Thursday to be returned on Fridays.
