P4 & P5 Teaching and Learning

 

TOPIC 
During our Europe topic so far we have learned a general geography of the world, and looked at some of our closest neighbours in Europe, its food, art, and even learned some French! We have also learned a little history about the Greeks and Romans. This term we will continue to look at geographical features, tourism, medieval history, and I especially look forward to having a ‘German Christmas’.

Numeracy
In numeracy this term we will be covering 2D shape, more on time, function machines, length and perimeter, and developing addition and subtraction. P5s will be further developing their understanding and application of multiplication and division.

Literacy
In Literacy this term we are looking at persuasive language, selling a product, mythical story writing, improving our grammar and punctuation, and poetry.

Prizes and awards

In P4/5 we will have Friday awards where a star of the week will be awarded, as well as a pupil of the week award (for great work).

Children will also get the chance to earn ‘Brag Tags’ – these will be put onto a keyring for the children to keep, and are awarded for character traits, numeracy and literacy abilities, strengths in subjects and reading achievements.

Accelerated Reader

P4/5 go to the AR library on a Monday afternoon. They are allowed up to 3 books, and can take quizzes on them in class.

Europe Day
Plans are underway for a dedicated ‘Europe Day’ in P4/5. This will include learning new languages, dancing, cookery, and more.
