What are we learning?

Sept/Oct

Literacy

In literacy we will be focusing on famous authors, paying particular attention to Michael Morpurgo. We will learn about Michael and what inspired him to be a writer before studying his books and his style. We will look at what makes a good setting description before the children then write their own adventure stories. Our class novel will be Born to Run by Morpurgo himself. We will also learn about different kinds of nouns in P6 and P7 as well as learning about the different rules for spelling plural nouns. Other spelling rules we will study in P7 are prefixes such as auto and and anti while in P6 we will look at words with silent letters and the -ie, -ei pattern. The children will read both fiction and nonfiction texts and will complete comprehensions on various texts. Children who are completing the transfer will be revising and reviewing the literacy and maths curriculum.

Numeracy 

Data Handling

explain their work orally and/or through writing and draw conclusions; • interpret a wide range of tables, lists, graphs and diagrams; create and interpret frequency tables, including those for grouped data; understand, calculate and use the mean and range of a set of discrete data (P7)

Number

Primary 6 and 7 will be completing a lot of work on place value. We will be ordering and rounding numbers. We will also refresh addition and subtraction as well as revisiting all timetables.

Shape:

2D shapes –regular/irregular shapes, types of triangles. P7 angles

WAU

We will be focusing on ourselves in the first term! We will consider what is important to us, what makes us who we are as well as studying the human skeleton and organs.

PE

Keeping fit and healthy is so important. Swimming will be on Wednesday mornings and P6 and 7 will also complete the daily mile. Additionally, we will perfect be throwing and catching by playing various games, with the children coming up with some of their own. We will also complete fitness circuits.

UICT The children will be using Photospeak and Book Creator to recreate famous stories before creating their own.

 

Nov/Dec

Literacy.

In literacy the children will have many writing opportunities. The class will watch ‘The Windmill Farmer’ and use this as inspiration for their writing. They will take a walk in the shoes of the farmer, imagining how he would have felt at different stages of the story and writing from his point of view. They will also consider their own position on windmills, writing persuasive arguments to promote or warn against their use. The children will revise nouns, verbs and adverbs before learning about synonyms, antonyms and alliteration. They will use these devices in a range of Christmas activities, including when writing Christmas poems.

Numeracy.

Number

explore and predict patterns and sequences of whole numbers; follow and devise rules for

generating sequences;

  • understand and use multiples and factors and the terms prime, square and cube; appreciate inverse operations;
  • interpret, generalise and use simple relationships expressed in numerical, spatial and practical situations; understand and use simple function machines; • understand that a letter can stand for an unknown number.

Children will continue to develop and consolidate times tables knowledge.

Shape and space

  • construct a range of regular and irregular 2-D shapes; classify these through examination of angles and sides; recognise line and rotational symmetry; reflect shapes in a line; explore tessellations; name and describe common 2-D shapes; begin to understand congruence in 2-D shapes;
  • construct 3-D shapes; investigate the number of faces, edges and vertices on these shapes; name

and describe common 3-D shapes; explore the relationship between 2-D and 3-D shapes.

Shared education

Shared education gets underway this half term and the children will be learning about Japan. This learning will continue into the new year.
