P5

Welcome to P5!

A little bit about our class:

There are 15 girls and 6 boys in our class. Miss Colhoun is our teacher and our classroom-assistants are Mrs Small and Mrs Walls. This year we will be concentrating on our independent learning skills, trying to regain our academic confidence after our prolonged period of home learning.  We really do work very 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 - PE Gear & Return spelling test book (Don't forget to get it signed) 

Thursday - PE gear

Monday - Friday make sure you have your homework diary and homework books.

 

We have had a very busy year planned in Primary 5.
