P7W Learning Leaflet
Within Big Maths this term we will be revising, consolidating and extending our knowledge and skills in multiplication and division. We will learn how to complete equations involving numbers and letters. In co-operative groups we will have a go at teaching the mental maths strategies we have learned to other groups.
P7 will build upon their knowledge and understanding of money this term. We will learn how to find totals, give change and calculate profit and loss. Later in the term we will focus on time. Through practical activities we will calculate time differences, learn to use timetables and research different time zones around the world.
We will continue to develop our problem solving skills. We will have opportunities to work both independently and in groups to learn more about the strategies and approaches we can use to help us.
Each group has already started reading a new novel. This term we will continue to use the reading strategies which we learned earlier this year with a focus on prediction and summarizing. Our class novel this term is ‘Wonder’ by R.J. Palacio.
This term we will be continuing to ‘up-level’ our writing using VCOP. Most of our writing will be focused around our ‘Choices and Changes’ topic and our transition to academy. Children will continue to have opportunities to self-assess and peer-assess their writing using a variety of strategies.
Children will continue to receive new spelling words each week which will be revised daily in class and through homework activities. There is also a ‘challenge’ word each week which children will be encouraged to learn the spelling and meaning of.
Health and Wellbeing
In PE P7 will think about how to achieve the greatest speed, height, distance and accuracy through a range of athletics activities. Our PE days this term are Monday and Thursday. We are also looking forward to working with some RGU students in PE this term.
This term our topic is ‘Choices and Changes’! We will be learning how to achieve a healthy lifestyle by researching the effects alcohol, smoking and taking drugs have on the body. In our co-operative groups we will research the changes our body will face and find out where to get help and advice when we need it.
We will continue to have French on Wednesday afternoons with Mrs Grant and Mandarin with Miss Shi on Wednesday mornings.
We have a busy term ahead of us as we get ready to leave Glashieburn School! We are currently planning and preparing for our end of year fundraiser, practising for our leavers show and getting excited about our leaver’s events!
