Good evening,

I hope you all enjoyed the sunshine this weekend.  Homework and news for this week as follows:


Reading – Reading books are due in on Friday 18th June.  Please can you ensure that all reading books from home are handed in on or before this day.  Thank you.


On Tuesday 22nd of June from 1:00 to 1:30 we will be having a virtual class assembly.  The children will be telling you all what we have been learning for the past few weeks.  I will be sending a google meet code to the parent emails tomorrow afternoon for this meeting.  Please don’t share this code with any other class as it is unique to our class assembly meeting.  If you do not receive an invite meeting code by Tuesday, please email me at and I will sent it to you.

Please can you send in an empty plastic bag for the children to send home their work this week.

Thank you as always for all of your support this year.  I can’t quite believe we only have 2 weeks left before the end of P5.  The children have been a delight to work with this year.

P5R Transport Class Talk

P5 Transport Talk

I am developing confidence when engaging with others within and beyond my place of learning. I can communicate in a clear, expressive way and I am learning to select and organise resources independently. LIT 2-10a / LIT 3-10a

Your task for your class talk this term is to choose a form of transport that interests you.

This could be current forms of transport such as cars, buses, trains, planes etc.  Or you could look at transport from the past like the Penny Farthing.  You might talk about the change over time for a form of transport.  For example looking at how cars have changed over time. You might look at more modern ideas for cars such as the electric car or the flying car!


You should prepare your talk to last between 2 and 4 minutes.

This can be presented in any way you choose -a poster, a powerpoint, a model etc…..

Your talk should be ready to present to the class by Friday 4thJune


  • A nice clear, loud voice
  • Detail about your chosen topic
  • Good eye contact with your audience
  • Well prepared and practised

I look forward to hearing your talks.  Good luck!
