P6/7- Mr MacDonald 2019-2020

P6/7 will begin working in ‘literacy circles’ as part of our group reading with each member taking on a different role week by week. Our class is now reading 'Goodnight Mr Tom' as a class novel with comprehension follow-ups. We will also examine newspaper and video resources to separate fact from opinion. Our class will continue to explore the 50s/60s with a tie dying workshop with Catriona MacKay, as well as personal and persuasive writing exercises using the 50s/60s as a context. Technology will also take centre place in this block as we consider how technology has changed and what impact this has had on how we live.
 
In numeracy we will begin learning about time, distance and speed, as well as continuing to reinforce our understanding of place value. Before Christmas P6/7 will also cover dimensions, area and volume calculations. Active learning will play a big role as we use practical examples in and around the school.
 
In the expressive arts this term will also see us participate at the Day of Scottish Country Dance at Bells Sports Centre, produce and create the set for our Christmas show.
