P4a Term Overview

Hi Primary 4A!

I hope that you all had a restful and enjoyable holiday – even if it was a little different from our usual breaks! You have been doing a great job engaging with the learning tasks that have been set so far. I have really enjoyed seeing all our your uploads, photos and videos over the past few weeks and I look forward to seeing your continued hard work this term!

Numeracy and Maths

This term we shall be continuing to develop pupil’s knowledge and understanding across all areas of Numeracy. We will continue to explore numbers and their structure to 1000 and beyond and develop a variety of skills and strategies which can be used in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will further explore fractions including finding a fraction of a shape or amount as well as exploring equivalent fractions. Additionally, we will look at a range of Maths topics including time, measurement and money. Each day there will be a task set which will look at a different aspect or topic mentioned above. Activities will be varied and include some written and some active tasks. We also encourage pupils to regularly access their Sumdog account to consolidate their skills and knowledge through the range of games available.

Literacy

This term we will be setting a variety of tasks to develop skills and knowledge within different areas of Literacy. Weekly spelling words will continue to be sent to children and a variety of active spelling activities will encourage children to learn new rules and patterns. There will also be a variety of grammar activities set each week. In reading, we will be continuing to develop key reading skills through a range of activities including reading comprehension tasks. Within writing, we will be primarily focusing on creating non-fiction texts and looking at some of the key features of non-chronological reports and diagrams. We will also look at developing fictional writing through various tasks.

Learning Across the Curriculum

Each day, as well as a Literacy and Numeracy and Maths activity, there will be a Learning Across the Curriculum task set. Much of this will be centred around our topics for the term which will include space, weather and properties of materials. Tasks within Literacy and Numeracy may also link to these topics. There will also be activities set in areas such as French, Expressive Arts and Health and Wellbeing.

In addition to these three key areas, we will continue to share exciting learning opportunities that are becoming available throughout this time such as Joe Wick’s P.E sessions, Fischy Music assemblies or exciting live lessons.

Please remember to get in touch through Seesaw if you are having any trouble accessing our learning or need any help.

Mrs Thomson
