Room 8 have settled very well into the senior area and also P5. We have recently introduced a new way of thinking into our classroom called 'Growth Mindset' which we hope to embrace as the year goes on. We will be working on creating a display of this.
So far this term we have read a class novel called 'Bill's New Frock' by Anne Fine. This book allowed us to have lots of discussion about sterotypes. We have also chosen our own individual readers which we will read in class throughout the week. We will be focussing on reading for understanding this term and looking at all the strategies which will help us do this.
This term in Writing we will be looking at how to include VCOP in our work and will also be focussing on imaginative writing.
Big Maths - We have started using our Big Maths Strategies and are already beginning to learn some new ways of multiplying bigger numbers.
Health and Wellbeing
In P.E. this term we are learning balls skills which will allow us to participate in different team games. During our shorter P.E. session we are looking at fitness and stamina but creating a cicuit course.
