P7M Learning Leaflet – Information for Parents

Term 4

Numeracy

This term P7M will be further developing their skills in ‘algebraic thinking’ by exploring equations and inequalities.  They will revisit whole number and decimal calculations and learn about the order of operations.  P7M will also be developing their skills in measuring and calculating angles, bearings and calculating averages.

On a daily basis P7M will continue to revise and consolidate their mental strategies, computation methods and times tables – determined to beat their ‘Beat That!’ scores this term!

Literacy

Reading – This term P7M will be continuing to develop their reading strategies through a range of individual, paired and group activities.   They will be learning to transfer their skills by using them in different contexts.

Writing – Writing this term will be closely linked to our Health and IDL topic; P7M will be learning how to write balanced arguments, factual reports and personal texts.  They will also be very busy creating their P7 Profiles and helping to construct their leaver’s year book!

Spelling – 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

In our ‘Choices and Changes’ topic, P7M will explore and develop their understanding of the impact of risk-taking behaviour on their life choices, learning to make informed decisions and live a healthy lifestyle. They will be developing their understanding of the use and misuse of substances such as alcohol, drugs and tobacco.  P7 will also take part in the ‘Living and Growing’ programme, developing their awareness of sexual health, relationships and parenthood.

PE will continue to be on a Wednesday morning and a Friday afternoon.  As the weather is improving please make sure you have suitable clothing for going outdoors.  Please see Miss Robertson’s Learning Leaflet for more information.

IDL

Alongside our ‘Choices and Changes’ topic, P7 will be working very hard to prepare for their Leaver’s Show!  With props, backdrops and programmes to make, songs and lines to learn, you can be sure that you’ll be in for a treat!

With only one experiment left to share with P1/2B, P7M are very close to completing their Science Champion award.  They will be finalising their log books and creating a portfolio of some of their favourite science experiences too!
