In Literacy and English we have been reading our new novel, ‘Carrie’s War’ and have been working on various active reading strategies including visualising and making self, text and world connections. Miss Henderson takes the class on a Wednesday for Listening and Talking and Grammar.

Our Big Writing lessons are linked to our Social Studies topic, World War 2. So far we have created persuasive propaganda posters, job adverts for a soldier and made notes about the Blitz in Scotland to write our own mini books. Mr Mckissock has also been working on answering questions using unseen texts to enhance our comprehension skills.

Mrs Phillips has taught us about place value and rounding large numbers to millions and beyond, in Numeracy and Mathematics. We are currently working on decimal place value and rounding. Mr McKissock has taught us about co-ordinates and symmetry and we made some eye-catching pictures for our maths display!

The class will enjoy a trip to the Tall Ship in Glasgow after the October break to learn about role of men and woman during World War 2 and the shipbuilding industry on the Clydeside. We can’t wait!
