P5

Welcome to P5!

A little bit about our class:

There are 15 girls and 6 boys in our class. Our teachers are Miss Colhoun (Mon - Thurs) and Mrs McArdle (Friday) 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!

There will be a whole school focus on Health and Wellbeing going forward and we will be studying topics such as resilience, mindfulness, managing our feelings and kindness.  

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

Monday : Wear P.E. Gear & Return spelling test book (Don't forget to get it signed) 

Thursday : P.E gear

Monday - Friday : make sure you have your homework diary and that you have updated your Google Classroom. You need a Healthy snack each day (Bread based snack, fruit, veg or a yoghurt) and dinners must be booked before midnight the previous day.

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

Here is an outline of what we will be covering this year across the curriculum                                                    **This is subject to change slightly based on teacher assessment**
