P5 Miss Mooney

Welcome to Primary 5!

A little bit about our wonderful class:

We have 15 children in Primary 5 this year.  (7 girls and 8 boys).

Our teacher is Miss Mooney.

This year we will be concentrating on developing our independent learning skills and building on our academic confidence.

There will be lots of new information this year and lots of hard work! We know we must work hard in Primary 5, but we look forward to lots of the fun along the way.

There will continue to be a whole school focus on Health and Wellbeing this year and we will be studying topics such as settling in, resilience, mindfulness, friendship, managing our feelings, kindness, conflict resolution and transitioning.  

Below are some key days to remember when packing your school bag and getting prepared for school:

Monday: Homework will be issued.

Tuesday:

Wednesday: PE Day – Swimming for Term 1.

Thursday:

Friday : Please return your homework on a Friday. Spelling test, number check up and mixed mental maths quiz will take place (make sure you've done lots of practise through the week).

 

Children should wear FULL school uniform. This includes yellow polo shirt, blue jumper with school crest, plain BLACK shoes or plain BLACK trainers and grey smart trousers, skirt or pinafore.
Jogging bottoms and leggings are not permitted on these days.

On PE days, children may wear PLAIN black or grey leggings or jogging bottoms. No detailing should be visible. Patterned leggings are NOT appropriate school uniform.

Homework for the week will be sent home on a Monday. It can be completed whenever is most appropriate for your family but must be brought back into school by Friday morning in time for marking.

The children will begin to practise peer marking with their homework which will be overseen by the teacher.

Monday - Friday : Children need a HEALTHY snack each day (Bread based snack, fruit, veg or a yoghurt) and hot dinners must be booked before midnight the previous day using the school money system.

Don’t forget your water bottle. Water / Sugar free still flavoured water only in water bottles during class time and fruit juice (not fizzy) can be brought with you for lunch time.

We adhere to a healthy schools policy in Saint Joseph's. Please be mindful of this when packing lunch boxes.
