Primary 4M Learning Leaflet
Information for Parents
This term, Primary 4M will be focusing on telling the time, in particular; o’clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past. We will also be concentrating on division and linking this to our tables. This will lead on to exploring and using fractions.
In our written work, we will be looking at persuasive language, where the pupils will “work” for an advertising company and need to produce some new ideas with catchy slogans and use relevant language.
We will also be covering alliteration, as well as pulling out key points from texts, in order to retell texts in our own words.
Health and Wellbeing
The pupils will be exploring their rights and the associated responsibilities within these rights this term.
For our independent learning, the pupils will have a chance to learn about and research various countries and continents in the world. This will be investigated through the use of computers, television and various books and games.
They will also have the chance to investigate magnetism and make a simple circuit and exploring this further where possible.
As well as earning house points, the children are eagerly trying to earn marbles for their table for positive behavior and good efforts within the classroom. At the end of each week, their marbles are counted and the children have a week of using the Rainbow Tray and having cushions for their seats!
