In writing this term, pupils will be focussing on developing their persuasive writing skills.
Pupils will be collecting, organising, presenting and organising data. They will create a variety of charts and graphs for display.
Inclusion is a focus this term with pupils being encouraged to think carefully about the feelings of others and how to ensure that everyone feels included within our school community.
Later in the term we will be learning about Substance Misuse and the affects that this can have on our lives.
P.E. Term 4 in PE will be focussing on athletics and learning about the different athletic components and actions of timing, measuring and the element of competition. The children will be learning how to gain distance and optimal speed through activities such as long jump, discus and javelin. Please note for the safety of all pupils it is important that your child has secure fitting, non-slip indoor shoes and removes all jewellery for these sessions. Loose and/or long hair should also be tied back.
We have been learning about Scotland’s geography and will be comparing it to the geography of some of the Commonwealth countries in preparation for the Commonwealth Games 2018.
Ideas to support homework
Times table practice/Mental maths practice during car journeys, trips to the shops etc. can give pupils valuable practice and help to improve accuracy and speed in Numeracy.
Encourage reading for enjoyment by taking children to visit the library regularly to borrow books of their choosing. A range of fiction and non-fiction is important to help develop vocabulary and general knowledge.
Independent research on the Commonwealth Games and the countries involved in them.
