What will I be learning in P7
Our teacher is Mr Gallagher and Miss McAtear
Our PE days are: Thursday and Friday
Language is about communicating. We will enjoy reading novels, information texts and poetry and use these as a basis for discussion and prediction, considering intentions and feelings. We will be further developing reading detective roles. We will be taught reading skills during focussed reading sessions and will look in detail at a class novel ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’ set during wartime Britain. We will learn to read aloud using expression and fluency through reading and assessing our classmates. We will write in a variety of genres producing leaflets, scripts, menus and personal projects along with persuasive articles using specialist vocabulary. We will learn to speak confidently in a variety of situations from class presentations to assembly presentations taking time to consider audience, the purpose, pace and tone. We will learn to develop our listening skills whilst listening to visiting speakers and through using video clips and will develop our ability to take notes when using internet sources.
There is a lot to maths including Mental maths, position and movement, number, money & measurement and information handling. We will investigate maths in the world of work. Our active maths will continue using practical maths work cards, tarsia cards and online software such as Interactive Maths Resources, Espresso and Education City.
