Learning in Term 3

This term (until the February half-term break), our main focus is Enterprise. 
We will do this mainly through panto, making tickets, programs, recording outgoings and sales, profits etc.  We will also organise a 'Scottish celebration' with our P1 buddies and invite parents to this.  Just before the break, we will be begin setting up businesses to 'Grow £5.'
After the February break, our topic will be 'Asia.'  We will learn about the geography, traditions and customs and culture of the continent focussing on countries including Japan, China and India.

In numeracy, we will finish off work on decimals then progress to linking to fractions.  We will also further our learning in finding fractions of sets, simplifying fractions, finding equivalence, adding and subtracting fractions and various other fraction work.  We will then link fractions to percentges and find percentages of an amount.  We will also learn about shape and their properties.

In literacy (until February break), we will be focussing on personal texts and will write about our panto experience, an autobiography and various other personal pieces.  We will also read personal texts and focus on building understanding of text and knowledge of vocabulary.  After the February break, we will be writing an imaginative book which will be shared at 'Sharing the Learning' afternoon at the end of term.

In Health and Wellbeing, we will continue learning about food miles and food waste.  The children will continue to work in their leadership groups and organise and lead different activities.  For PE, we will improve our skills in gymnastics and lacrosse.  Once a week until the Easter break, we will have a session a week with the PE specialist Miss McKie.  In March we will have some rugby tasters with Active Stirling.

 


In music, we will continue to learn recorder and hope to learn some songs to play at our Scottish celebration afternoon.  We will also be working on performance skills (singing and dancing) via panto.

We will continue building our vocabulary in French and German after the February holiday.


 
Cross country at Kirkintilloch

Well done to the children who took part in the Springburn Harriers' cross country competition on Sunday 6th November.  Despite very muddy conditions, the children ran really well and respresented their school fantastically.

Ancient Greece

This term our topic is Ancient Greece.  So far, we have been learning about daily life and Greek myths.  We drew some pictures of the Parthenon, a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena and decorated some Greek vases.  We are currently making books, retelling stories of Greek myths and adding VCOP.  We will then create our own myth.

Visit to Tall Ship and Riverside Museum

We were lucky enough to go to the Tall Ship and take part in a storytelling session.  Ailsa the storyteller told us all about an apprentice who worked on the ship and his adventures.  We took the opportunity to explore the ship and also had a quick visit to the Transport Museum.
