Primary 5-7

Term 1 2020/2021

Class Novel: Wonder by R.J Palacio

Writing: In literacy we are going to be focusing on personal writing this term. This will include formal and informal letter writing, reflective writing, personal essays and diary entries. The children have each set a personal writing target they would like to focus on throughout all pieces of their writing, and they will assess their progress with this after each writing lesson.

Reading: Accelerated Reader will continue to be used.

Spelling:  P5-7 will continue with Active Literacy.

Maths: This term we are focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages, number and number processes and multiples, factors and primes. We will be using Big Maths to focus on our mental maths and improve our instant recall. We will be using a combination of written, active and virtual mathematics activities. We would encourage the children to continue using Sumdog at home to focus on any skills they need to develop.

PE: This term PE will be on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Library: The pupils visit the Library every Tuesday morning.

Homework: Spelling homework will be given on a Tuesday to be handed in the following Friday.

Outdoor Learning: As part of the whole school’s development we will (weather permitting) be taking our learning outside on a weekly basis to incorporate maths, literacy and science projects.
