P4/5

Welcome to P4/5!

A little bit about our class:

There are 13 girls and 14 boys in our class. Miss Fitzsimons is our teacher and our classroom-assistants are Mrs Brennan, Miss Forsythe and Miss Heaney. This year we are focusing on becoming more independent learners. Each month we change the classroom jobs to ensure everyone has a chance to demonstrate their responsibility. We work REALLY hard in our classroom, but we also know it is important to have fun along the way!

Below are some key days to remember when packing your school bag:

Monday - Spelling test book (Don't forget to get it signed) 

Thursday - PE gear

Friday - Library books

Monday - Friday make sure you have your homework diary, homework book and pencil case.
