Welcome to P5CM!


Mr Kelleher / Mr Cassidy

Welcome to our Primary 5 page!

In Term One we will be working on 'The World in Motion'. We look forward to learning about technological advances, discussing possible reasons and causes behind why people move and understand more about Viking raiders and settlers.

In Term Two Primary 5 will be exploring 'The Natural World'. Our focus is on a wide range of animals their food chains, classification and habitats. 

In Term Three our topic will be 'Farming in the Past'. Throughout this topic we look closely at Ancient Egypt. We will compare and contrast farming in Ancient Egypt to farming in modern day Northern Ireland.

We look forward to taking part in the PATHS programme for schools.
We will aim to update our class page with photographs as well as posting onto Seesaw.
