To all our lovely P5s,

A little note to you all to say how much we are missing you and we hope that you are well. The most important thing for you all at the moment is to stay safe and make the best of this tricky situation. Enjoy having time at home with your family.

 

Try and make sure you are doing these six things every day!

  1. Reading
  2. Exercising
  3. A little Maths
  4. Getting outdoors.
  5. Something creative.
  6. Something fun that makes you laugh!

 

Mrs Law and I are trying to get through this list each day with our kids! Number six is my favourite J.

Shared Education Egyptian Masks

Still image for this video
We had a fantastic time making Egyptian masks with St Mary’s as part of the Shared Education programme. We had the opportunity to visit St Mary’s Primary School and make our masks there. To begin we decided on a design for our masks, ,made a card template and then covered it in paper mache. Next we painted it gold and decorated it with card and gems. This was a great opportunity to build friendships, be creative and share our learning from our topic of Egyptians. Have a look at our video to see the fun we had.

📚World Book Day📚

 

We all had a great time participating in World Book Day. Everyone dressed up in their pyjamas and brought in their favourite book to read at night. Some of us even brought in our favourite teddy to cuddle. We all tried very hard not to get too comfy and fall asleep! We enjoyed taking part in different games and activities related to books. We had a scavenger hunt in the library, we played a story book game answering questions on famous story books and we all enjoyed quiet time reading together.

We enjoyed a visit from W5 as part of the Shared Education project. We watched an amazing Science Magic show and took part in a K’NEX challenge. We created 2D and 3D shapes and were challenged to design and make a car. We tested the cars on ramps to see which went the furthest. We all had a lot of fun and enjoyed spending time with our friends from St Mary’s.

Uluru Debate

Still image for this video

We have really enjoyed our first month back at school. Our topic for this term is Australia and we have been learning all about Australian states, landmarks and the habitats of animals that live there. In numeracy we have been working really hard to learn our multiplication facts, how to add and subtract 3 digit numbers and lots more. In literacy we have looked at poetry and have written our own colour poems. We have also enjoyed starting the Accelerated reading programme and trying to reach our targets. We love all reading together each day in class. Each Wednesday morning we go swimming and this is a highlight of the week for most.

Uluru Debates

We have been learning all about Ayers Rock (Uluru). We researched facts and created a list of reasons why you should and shouldn't climb it. We then held debates discussing the issue.

We looked at and discussed the work of Australian artist Emma Gale. We took inspiration from her collages to create our own Australian bird collages. Didn't we do well!

We are having lots of fun in P.E each Friday. Andy, a coach from IFA has been teaching us ball skills and how to play handball.

We love Fridays in P5! We get to enjoy golden time each Friday afternoon and the winning table each week get to bring in a toy from home.
