Welcome to our Primary 4/5 page!

In P4/5 we enjoy numeracy and literacy lessons every day.
Lots of our numeracy work is practical. We love estimating, measuring and relating our numeracy to real world experiences.
As part of our literacy we will be reading some whole class novels.
We also enjoy regular talking and listening sessions, which give us the opportunity to listen and explore different points of view.

In the afternoons we rotate between all areas of the curriculum.
We really love art and have lots of cool display boards to share our wonderful creations.

In Term One we will be working on our new topic ‘Where Am I? Who Am I?’. We look forward to learning about our local area and community before researching information about Northern Ireland, its landscapes, history and even its tourist attractions.  Along with this we will investigate how to look after ourselves, body and mind.

In Term Two Primary 5 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 other places.  We will carry out lots of science experiments and investigations, including mummifying tomatoes.

In Term Three our final area of learning will involve exploring ‘The Natural World’. Our focus is on a wide range of animals their food chains, classification and habitats.

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.
