P6 have settled well into term 4, currently reading Wonder as the class novel. Already P6 have created precepts to encourage and motivate them in their final term. The children will also be continuing with “Talk for Writing” and will be moving onto creative and imaginative writing this term now that we have finished writing instructions. Alongside this, the children will also continue to develop their reading skills through comprehension, we have recently been using our talking and listening skills to help us with that. Finally, P6 will also have the opportunity to reflect on their learning using their learning logs.
Last term, as well as learning Fractions, Shape, Symmetry and Angles, the children also had the opportunity to learn Scale which tied in nicely with our Scottish Landscape topic, learning how to correctly read a map. In our final term Primary 6 will be learning Time, Budgeting, Data Handling and Probability. As always, these will be taught alongside “Number Talks”; providing an opportunity for the children to develop their mental maths and times tables.
P6 appeared to enjoy their two mini topics last term learning all about Scottish Landscape and Natural Disasters and I’m sure they can’t wait to share their projects with their peers. With Term 4 well under way, the pupils will now be moving onto a new topic which is extremely relevant just now – Democracy. Alongside this topic the pupils will also have the opportunity to research and study a country of their choice highlighting the similarities and differences to our own country, as well as comparing weather and climate.
Health and Wellbeing
Term 4 is already off to a flying start with Bikeability now on every Monday after school 3-4pm. As well as this, P6 are also very lucky to be attending another outdoor trip (hopefully with better weather this time) on Friday 3rd May. Finally, rehearsals for school show are also in full swing with only 7 more weeks until ShowTime.
Our PE days are Thursday and Friday. Please ensure that your child has an appropriate P.E kit (e.g. black shorts/leggings, white t-shirt and gym shoes) and that all jewellery is taken off.
