Primary 4-7 Mrs Smith

This year the teacher in Primary 4-7 is Mrs Smith.

The support staff working in Primary 4-7 are Miss Muir and Miss Azad.

Primary 2-7 have many exciting things planned for term 2. The children continue to enjoy their topic “Into Europe”. We used our passports to visit Italy, finding out some interesting facts along the way. We also spent a week in Venice which was great fun. We looked at gondolas, famous landmarks and used our design skills to create masks for the Venice carnival! This term we plan to visit 2 more countries – Germany and Greece and we look forward to finding out more about these countries. Our topic has dovetailed nicely into our art and design lessons with Mrs Judge and the children have created their own Monet pictures and tried their skills at creating mosaics. Some Greek dancing is planned for this term!

In Maths, pupils will continue to work on different areas within maths. Some groups will be developing their knowledge of addition and subtraction through many active maths activities. Other groups will be focusing on the concept of “Money” and relating it to life skills and everyday activities. They will continue to use Big Maths CLIC sessions to challenge and improve their mental skills.

In Literacy, pupils will continue to develop their skills in reading, writing, grammar and spelling. Some groups will be introduced to new active games in Literacy to help support their reading. The writing focus for this term is Functional writing. Many fun activities are planned such as writing a safety brochure for Bonfire Night and writing a gruesome recipe for Halloween.

Some of the children are enjoying attending our French language club on a Friday lunchtime and some are also attending the Christmas Enterprise club and Burns Choir which is keeping us all very busy.
