Welcome to Primary 5!
Our class teacher is Mr Frizzell and our assistants are Amy and Christine.
Primary 5 are learning about Being Original.
When we explore 'Being Original' we are reminded of the Native Americans and their original ideas of housing and also the original process of embalming by the Ancient Egyptians.
In our topic we learn all about these cultures and also explore what makes us original through our work on Forgiveness Education and our Shared Education Partnership with St Clare's.
Here are some photos of what has been happening in Primary 5!
Gardening with Mrs McDonnell
Mrs McDonnell comes in each Thursday to take us for gardening sessions. We have been planting, learning about photosynthesis, purchased a compost bin and created a mini beast hotel.
We are learning about fact and opinion in literacy by taking part in a carousel activity! This will help us with our newspaper writing focus.
In Numeracy we are learning about the connections between our 2, 4 and 8 times tables.
Did you know that double the answers to the 2’s are the an answers to the 4’s? And double the answers to the 4’s are the 8’s?
Here’s an example:
5 x 2 = 10
5 x 4 = 20
5 x 8 = 40
