Learning in term 3
In numeracy we are working on multiplication and division, fractions, decimals and percentages. We will use both written and mental strategies for multiplication and division. We will learn how to simplify fractions, find equivalent fractions, and find fractions of a set. We will also make links between fractions, decimals and percentages.
In literacy, we will be working on awareness of genre. We will learn about the features of each and will carry out comprehension and pieces of writing linked to different genre. For talking and listening, pupils will do individual presentations to their peers on a subject of their choice.
In January/February we will be learning about Scotland, its geography and landscape, wildlife and famous people and events. We will learn a Burns poem and hope to organise a Burns Supper. February - beginning of April we will be doing a Science topic, focussing mainly on materials and chemical reactions.
Our residential trip to Ardroy will take place week beginning 10th February and we will carry on working towards our John Muir award afterwards.
