This term our focus will be on revising, consolidating and extending our knowledge and skills in relation to addition and subtraction. Later in the term we will be working with money using a variety of active lessons, giving opportunities to use their knowledge and skills.
A focus within reading this term will be development of summarising skills through group reading books. They will be learning how to select key information, main events and how to retell the story in their own words. The children will continue to develop decoding and prediction skills.
This term we are focusing on instructional writing. We have already worked on a scary magic potion recipe with Mrs. Black and are excited to improve our instructional skills even further.
Later in the term we will be looking at letter writing whilst still continuing to focus on good features of writing using VCOP.
Spelling patterns are introduced on on a weekly basis, and focus on consonant blends. New common words are added to your child’s key-ring on a Monday, so please ensure these are practised and then returned on a Friday.

P2G will have one PE session with Miss Robertson this term and one with Miss Greene. The children will be developing their skipping skills at the beginning of term and working on a variety of athletic skills using circuit stations later in the term.
Please see Miss Robertson’s learning leaflet for details on second session.
This term P2G have chosen Katie Morag as our class topic.
Through this topic we will be learning about island life in comparison to city life in Scotland, how to read a map, Scottish dancing and singing a variety of Scottish songs.
