Welcome to Primary 4/5 class page. We are a very busy class and enjoy a wide range of learning experiences across the Curriculum.
On Mondays, many of us enjoy piano lessons with Charlotte or woodwind lessons with Richard.
Tuesdays are very busy for us all, we enjoy morning assembly with a local minister, then straight to football with Chris. After all that exercise we have toast for break, then the library van visits and we can change our books. Marianna joins us to help develop our language skills by teaching us useful words and phrases in Spanish. After lunch we have singing lessons with Shauna, which helps to keep our voices in tune.
Wednesdays and Thursdays are still busy but we have fewer visitors.
On Friday we enjoy hockey with Christine and our celebration assembly when we celebrate our achievements from the week.
We decided to take Maths outdoors for the week, not only did we learn a lot by using our natural environment, we also got to enjoy some beautiful autumnal weather. We looked for shapes in our school playground and found numbers that we could use to make 100. Primary 5 used leaves to create multiplication and division facts, which was very successful. We then had to solve a number of problems from given scenarios and complete a number trail. We all enjoyed our outdoor classroom!
We went on a class trip to Armagh county museum, where we were given a warm welcome. We learned about the linen industry in Northern Ireland, how the crops were grown , linen produced from that and its importance throughout the world. We enjoyed a printing workshop with a local artist and printed our own handkerchiefs which are on display in school and tried on costumes from past eras. We had a great morning and look forward to our next trip!
