Primary 5/4

Welcome to Primary 5/4!

Class Teacher:  Mr Armstrong

We have settled in really well to Primary P5/4 and are excited for the learning and challenges ahead!

Welcome to the Primary 5/4 class page!  We have made a fantastic start to the school year and are already enjoying settling into our classroom and routines!

We are very much enjoying making the classroom feel special unique to our class.  Everyone has contributed to discussions and decision-making about our classroom helpers and class charter.  We know our voices are heard and opinions are valued.

Our Pupil Group will be Young STEM Leaders and we are very excited about our ideas for pupil-led learning and projects this year. Be sure to follow Seesaw for some amazing Science lessons!

As we settle into our new classroom, we will be making good use of different resources in numeracy and ensuring that we are active and challenged in maths.  We will also be exploring Talk for Writing as part of literacy this term.  Our first class novel is ‘Ratburger’ by David Walliams and we are thoroughly enjoying it!

Our topic this term is ‘The Oceans’ and we have so far loved learning all about the different layers and creatures we find there!

This term, our indoor will be on a Monday and our indoor PE will be on a Tuesday.  Marlon will also take us for outdoor learning on a Wednesday. For the next few weeks we will be using our indoor and outdoor P.E slot to ‘Beat the Street’ – if any parents wish to join us, we leave the school at around 1.15 on both days!


All homework can now be accessed via Seesaw. Use your child’s Home Learning Code to view activities they need to complete.

A homework overview will be issued every week on Seesaw – this will be pinned at the top of your child’s journal. This includes a core piece of numeracy and and reading homework expectation for each week.


Reading homework –  A reading record will be posted for a month and pupils are asked to update this as they complete book tests. The reading expectations are as follows:

Primary 4 – at least 15 minutes a night

Primary 5 – at least 20 minutes a night

At the end of each month, the reading record will be completed by myself and sent home for families to view the progress.


A numeracy activity will be issued on Seesaw to be completed each week.
