Primary 4/5

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. 

Maths 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!

Grace passed her swimming exam, we are very proud of her, well done!

Our Trip to the Museum.

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!

Just before half term the PTA organised a Jumping Clay morning and we made beautiful hedgehogs, the School Council also organised a bun sale for the same day, which was a real treat!
Joseph won player of the month for hockey.  Christine presented him with a t-shirt as a prize.

Well done Joseph, we are so proud of you!

Well done Joseph, we are so proud of you! 1

We each dissolved a disclosure tablet in our mouths to highlight the build up of plaque on our teeth.  The varying colours indicated how long the plaque had been there, which was very interesting!  We then cleaned our teeth to remove the staining which helped to focus our attention on how we brush- thinking about the length of time we take on each tooth or area of the mouth and also the pressure applied when brushing.  It definitely made us think!  No teeth were harmed when carrying out this experiment!

PSNI Keeping Safe Online

On Monday 14th January we had a visit from the PSNI to talk to us about keeping safe online.  This was very appropriate given that so many of our class received new devices for Christmas which use the internet.  The talk was very informative and related very much to our own experiences online.  Stay safe, be nice online, don't disclose personal information and if something makes you feel uncomfortable, TELL.
