P7GM Learning Leaflet
Information for Parents
This term we will be revising, consolidating and extending our knowledge and skills in division, fractions and decimals.
We will also be carrying out practical tasks and investigations involving timed events. Through this we will be learning to use and interpret timetables, make time conversions and estimate the time taken to complete journeys.
We will continue to develop our understanding and skills in problem solving, learning more about the strategies and approaches we can use to help us.
Each reading group will be studying several novels and factual texts this term. Through group discussion, paired reading and independent tasks, we will be further developing our reading strategies. Reading homework tasks will be assigned fortnightly and completed using a personal reader.
This term we will be continuing to up-level our writing using VCOP. Our writing will be linked to our IDL topic ‘Scotland Rocks!’ Through this we will create factual reports, information brochures, imaginative news stories and some Scots poetry.
Spelling will continue to be reinforced on a weekly basis. New word lists will be issued each Monday and revised in class and at home.
Health and Wellbeing
P7GM will continue to have both PE sessions with Miss Robertson this term. These will take place on a Wednesday morning and a Friday afternoon. Please see Miss Robertson’s Learning Leaflet for more information.
As our IDL topic will require a lot of teamwork, we will be thinking about what makes an effective team and learning to appreciate the individual qualities each team member can share.
Our challenge has been set! This term we are no longer P7 Glashieburn pupils but members of up and coming Scottish Bands. We must visit 9 destinations, perform at a range of Scottish landmarks, plan and timetable our journeys, create costumes AND produce merchandise. As you can see, we will be kept very busy!
French will continue on Monday afternoons with Mrs Grant.
Mandarin with Miss Yen will continue on Wednesday afternoons and we will also have Calligraphy with Lo on a Tuesday.
Miss Michel, MA4 Student from the University of Aberdeen, will be working with us for 4 weeks this term and will be returning for another 4 in January.
Just a few reminders to finish off;
- Library books are changed on a Monday.
- A change of shoes must be taken each day.
- PE kits are required on Wednesday and Friday.
- PE kits should be taken home on a Friday.
- Homework is given out on Monday and should be returned on a Friday.
- It is expected that all pupils will have a personal reader. This can be a book chosen from the school library or something that they are reading at home.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Thank you, Miss Milne
