Summary of Learning

This term we will be expanding our knowledge of Govan’s rich history by researching the Govan Rent Strikes and Mary Barbour.  We will be developing our literacy skills through our reading books and have chosen to read “The Boy at the Back of the Class” as a novel study. We are very lucky to be using the iPads to develop our digital literacy and work towards creating our own podcasts.

In Maths we have been discovering the meaning of “estimating” and “inverses” and have been applying this knowledge to our written work. We are developing our mental maths skills with “Daily 10” covering all the four operations and we have been challenging ourselves with some problem solving.

This term we are trying to develop our Growth Mindset’s. We have learnt about the learning pit and will be discovering the power of “yet”. We are beginning to use positive language such as don’t give up, you can do it!

Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Wednesday.  Make sure you have your P.E.  kit and all jewellery should is removed.
